Screamn’ Dat Pimpin is filled with Hip Hop/Rap, Funk, Blues, and R&B/Soul. The back of the album cover represents symbols of the 1970s era such as the golden colored Black Power fist chain, the Afro pick comb, the black Go Go boots, and a pair of the funky star glasses Booty Collins wears. The front cover parodies the Superfly font lettering of Superfly by Curtis Mayfield. Screamn’ Dat Pimpin’ was released in 1995 on Jhiame Productions and B 4 Reel Records.
(OG Jhiame Dog is the legendary Screwed Up Click producer known as Jhiame. Jhiame Productions is based out of Houston, Texas. B 4 Reel Records was based out of Houston, Texas as well.)
On Screamn’ Dat Pimpin’… It’s 12 o’clock with OG Jhiame Dog and he needs a dub sack. OG Jhiame is a player raised by the old school and spreadin’ hustle to the new school. This is an international hustle. From Hollywood to Houston. From Newark to Paris to Dubai and to New York City. The drum programming is on point. The beats are on point too.
Hustler’s Anthem is dedicated to all the hustler’s of course. Whatever your hustle is, keep on pimpin’! Whether you a doctor, a lawyer, or a social worker. Do whatcha gotta you do! This is an international hustle. Funk meets rap on the Hustler’s Anthem. Hustler’s Anthem comes with a funky upbeat swing within the sound of this track right here.
Pimp On samples The Floaters – Float On. Pimp On is an ode and dedication towards The Floaters – Float On. You will love the Djembe drums and drum beats on Pimp On. Pimping is an international hustle as Jhiame claims.
Stop Hi-Cappin’ is talking about religion at first. Stop Hi-Cappin’ is mostly about bragging rights. Also Jhiame tells folks to stop acting cocky on Stop Hi-Cappin’. The beat is real good with a funky swing and funky swank.
E-Z Way Out is about a brother who is a hustler making his way out the ghetto. This brother who is a hustler is looking for a way out to make it out of the ghetto as this brother is looking for an easy way out from a live of poverty so he does not have to resort to a life of crime. Resorting to a life of crime is the last thing this brother wants to do. The title says it all.
Gangsta! I B Not is all about the streets. The title says it all. Resorting to a life of crime is the last thing this brother Jhiame wants to do. Jhiame claims he is not a gangsta. Gangsta! I B Not comes with a funky jazz swing on with a funky swank.
Ooo! Wee is just a party jam that is also a G-Funk jam. Rap meets soul on Ooo! Wee. The choir and beats are on point! The volume is slightly lower than all the other tracks on the album with a reduced sound. Both the volume and treble are reduced.
Cats Wanna Be Dogs is an ode to George Clinton – Atomic Dog. Perfect G-Funk jam! The choir, beats, bass, and vox are on point! Cats Wanna Be Dogs is aimed at those wannabe gangsters and posers whom Jhiame takes shots at. He also takes shots at these hoes and females groupies who this track is aimed at.
Hey Hoez is dedicated to all the hoez out there! You know who you are. Yet again, funk meets rap right here. Meaning that funk meets rap on Hey Hoez!. Jhiame takes shots at these hoes.
Playarism is about how playas do. The late great Leon Banks Jr. contributes to Playarism with a mean guitar solo. Playarism has that blues sound sound with a blended touch of Memphis soul. Memphis soul and Memphis blues are blended in with rap on the Playarism track.
Playa’s Blues is a Blues track featuring famous Memphis Blues musician/artist Leon Banks Jr.! The late great Leon Banks Jr. contributes to Playa’s Blues with a mean guitar solo. Playa’s Blues should have been longer than 2 minutes and 50 seconds. It should have been close to 4 or 5 minutes long. The track Playa’s Blues is something similar to what you would hear at a blues club. Playa’s Blues has that Memphis soul and Memphis blues sound to it.
For some reason this album went under the radar. Maybe it was something with Southwest Distribution or lack of promotion. But it was definitely due to lack of promotion that Screamn’ Dat Pimpin flew right under the radar and got overlooked in Texas rap.
I rate this album 5/5*****!!
