In Pursuit Of The Pimp Mobile

James Maycock, Nine, October 2002

A look at how black pimp culture has crossed into black popular culture, for which I interviewed Antonio Fargas. I refer to Miles Davis, the Ohio Players, Sly Stone, James Brown, Blaxploitation films, Willie Hutch, Iceberg Slim, Ike Turner etc. Published in a new black men’s magazine called NINE in the October/November 2002 premiere issue.
