Kanye West's 'Can't Tell Me Nothing' remix featured Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and Young Jeezy.
It was originally supposed to feature the late Pimp C, but Kanye asked him to rewrite his verse because it went after Jeezy.
Reddit user UniversalChimera just pulled an excerpt from Sweet Jones: Pimp C's Trill Life Story, by Julia Beverly, which explains what happened.
"I done vowed I'm not gonna drop that shit, because Kanye told me that the song is a prayer. I'm finna go back and [re-do it] and treat it as such, and treat it with respect, like I'm talking to the Lord. I'm not gonna invite no man to suck my dick on no muthafuckin' song... when I'm supposed to be praying," Pimp C said about the verse that never was.Here is what he would have rapped:
"I'm on this track like white on rice Mr. Potato Head tryin' to make me Christ I'm sorry, Atlanta; Georgia really is the South But too many boys got them thangs in they mouth I ain't talkin good grillz, mane I'm talkin' bout that Angus beef with that big ol' vein Gipp say they look like Sisqo The Chocolate City is the new San Francisco [...] This is for the busters and the suckers And the fake drug dealers and the internet cluckers Need to stop lying to the kids, for real Ain't have no Benz until you signed your first record deal (Chorus redone) Naaah naa na naaah Bitch I been had my money right I'm Rap-A-Lot in this mafia life Excuse me, do you really wanna go to war? Say something I'll leave your brains on your mini bar I think they bluffin' and they frontin' I'm Pimp C, you can't tell me nothing!"While Pimp C never did another verse for the remix, he would pop up the Can't Tell Me Nothing mixtape, alongside Lil Wayne and Fonzworth Bentley on the track 'c.o.l.o.u.r.s'.
