Big Crown Records is proud to present the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band’s smashing cover of PIMP on our imprint. Following up on the smashing success of their debut album “55” and a string of essential 45s, we are the third label to press this staple tune. Three labels, three times, three different B sides.
Back in 2008 BRSB originally released it's smashing cover of 50 Cent's P.I.M.P. which was long thought to be the original sample for the tune. It was this recording that brought them to Big Crown, and remains their most popular song to date. BRSB treat the tune to their signature smashing drums and bass heavy production, taking the original loop and turning it into a full composi- tion. Brass and steel pan parts putting it somewhere between reggae, steel funk, and the Superfly Soundtrack.
Side B is a proper reggae offering from BRSB, a cover of the legendary John Holt’s classic “Police In Helicopter”. Another must have two sider, another Big Crown sureshot.
