American Pimp, the feature documentary by the Hughes Bros. that earned a Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury nomination, explores the fascinating subculture of street pimps. Released in 1999 to a limited theatrical run, the doc aired repeatedly on HBO. Pent-up demand for more inspired this DVD of unreleased film footage, including extended interviews with Snoop Dogg and the other ghetto-fabulous characters introduced in the original film, such as veteran pimps Rosebudd, Payroll and Ken Red, plus newcomers Charm, C-Note and T-Mack.

The original was slickly edited to create a rather seemless documentary - in this unfortunate follow-up we see the Pimps as they truly are - unable to create a single coherant sentence. What you'll hear is one full hour of sentences like, "And then I met this Ho U-know-what-I'm-Sayin, and we were vibing U-know-what-I'm-Sayin and she was trying to play U-know-what-I'm-Sayin so I put my Pimp moves on her U-know-what-I'm-Sayin and soon she was inline with my pimpin U-know-what-I'm-Sayin and it was tight U-know-what-I'm-Sayin", or you get Rosebudd spending 5 full minutes trying to figure out which hotel one of his hoes was murdered in - extrememly boring stuff.
Ironically, pimps talk about the need to have good verbal skills and all, but after listenting to this it was obvious that most 3 year olds have better verbal skills than they do. Also there was nothing "raw" about this really except that you hear the word that rhymes with witch about 3,000 times, but they already did that in the original. There is a long interview with Snoop Dogg but it's not very interesting at all, and certainly not enlightening.
As for the soundtrack, I havn't listened to it yet but you could download those songs from the internet for free so why spend money buying this CD?
All in all this is a very sad effort U-know-what-I'm-Sayin ?

This is additional outtakes and for a collector you would want to have it. It's not as organized as the original film which when you think about it ....it shouldn't be. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Babyface
