Big Pimpin'

So, last night the question came up as to whether the lyric to Jay Z's Big Pimpin' was "Big pimpin', spendin' cheese" or "Big pimpin', spending G's." I thought it was the latter, though a friend of mine was saying it was the former. She in fact suggested I look it up and post it to my journal, hence this little narrative.

So, the first site I thought to check was AmIRight, a place where people can submit misheard lyrics. Their page on Jay Z, suggests that it's G's, not cheese.

I then decided to see if I could find it on Jay Z's official site, since this was second hand. Unfortunately, neither the Def Jam, nor the Roc-A-Fella Jay Z pages contain lyrics for the song. Jay Z Online (apparently run by Rab Basement Network) though has lyrics, as do all of these web sites.

Looks like it's G's and not cheese . . . which really does make a lot more sense as g is slang for a grand or a thousand . . .
