Throwback Thursday: Big Pimpin - Jay-Z ft. UGK

Speed: 69 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm, 70 bpm to 75 bpm

The DJ’s Take: One of my favorite Timbaland beats, and a true banger in every sense of the word. If you spin hiphop, this needs to be in your library a.s.a.p. Btw, interesting video on Timbaland's Middle Eastern music sampling.

Here are some key-compatible tracks worth mixing or mashing up with:
