(AllHipHop Premiere) Memphis emcee June and Mississippi emcee Big K.R.I.T. join forces in the new video for "Big Pimpin." June describes the track, produced by his brother Teddy Walton, as a modern, southern version of the Jay Z classic single off 1999's Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter album.
"I visualized Jay Z's version of 'Big Pimpin' in my mind, but the way we do it up in Memphis and Down South, and the lyrics just naturally started flowing," says June. "Having Big K.R.I.T. on this single was my vision before I even met Big K.R.I.T."
The clip was directed by J.R. Saints (Juicy J's "Bandz A Make Her Dance," The Game's "Ali Bomaye"). It also features an appearance by Maybach Music Group member Gunplay.
"The video shoot was again what I envisioned it. We had Gunplay pass by and bless the track and video by being part of my 'Big Pimpin' vision," adds June. "Big Pimpin is just not money, women and partying, but it's about being real and feeling good about being you, and Gunplay added to that real element."
