Yesterday (July 19), Chinara Butler, the wife of the late, great Pimp C, wasn’t pleased with Young Thug mentioning her husband’s name in Chance The Rapper’s “Big B’s.”
“Pimp C, I ain’t doing that, I’ma f**k her on the sheets, yeah/And all my n****s loyal like Bun B, hold on,” Thugger raps.
Was the bars disrespectful? I don’t think so, but regardless, this is the song Young Thug referenced.

In 2007, UGK released “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You),” from their self-titled album, Underground Kingz. Honestly, I was hotter than hell’s flame at this release because it was a remake of Project Pat’s “Choose U,” which was from his third album, Layin’ da Smack Down. My anger came from my admiration for Pat’s version, however, I must admit Bun B, Pimp C, Andre’ 3000, and Big Boi elevated the do-over to higher heights.
“My b***h a choosy lover, never f**k without a rubber/Never in the sheets, like it on top of the cover,” the late-Bulter rapped.
Produced by DJ Paul and Juicy J, the Willie Hutch-sample was promoted by a timeless video. Plot centered around Andre’s (fictional) wedding whom finds himself reluctant near wedding time. However, he eventually follow through.
3 Stax rapped a memorable verse a cappella, however it initially didn’t make sense to Big Boi.

“I was like, “Damn, you gon’ keep the beat out the whole damn time like that,” Big Boi asked.
“They gon’ l let him keep the beat out? How they gone God D**n play this s*t in the club?”
Apparently, it worked! The track would earned them a Grammy nominee and winner of the BET’s Video of the Year.
UGK’s “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You)” featuring OutKast is the Old School Video of the Week. #TBT
