For those of you that have been sleeping under a rock, Pootie Tang was a character from Chris Rock’s HBO comedy series “The Chris Rock Show” who went on to have an extremely silly but undeniably humorous movie in theatres. I remember it like it was yesterday going to see the movie and it being like 8 people in the theatre but laughing our asses off regardless. This track here was a previously unreleased track slated for the movie but was swept under the rug. The track producer Prince Paul states;
“This was a song that we recorded for the movie ..This is the ballad from the night club scene . Newkirk is on the keys Lance Crouther and Missy Elliot supplied the vocals . initially Newkirk and I scored the whole movie .. and then well .. Hollywood took over 😉 . This was lots of fun to record and after I definitely had a big respect for Missy she’s genius.”
Listen to the track below and prepare to get your chuckles on.
