younger members, elnlighten me "pimpin" - or - "big pimpin" - what does this mea

I've been hearing younger folk throw around the term "pimpin" - but I'm not sure what they mean. Last time I checked pimpin related to reping ladies of the night while wearing outrageous clothing and driving a flamboyant car.

What does it mean today?

"pimpin" means that something is "cool" in street talk. Another word for it is "phat". I would say "pimpin" is today's word for the 90's "cool".. for the 80's "radical!".. for the 70's "groovy".

"big pimpin" is the extreme version of "pimpin" :p


"Pimpin" car


"Big pimpin" car :p

Snibble, thanks for the info! As I get older it's harder to keep on top of lingo of the youger generations, but I'm always curious. Thanks for the pics. Down here in LA there used to be a lot of rides like that. But now I think those same guys/gals are going for the 20+ inch chrome rims. I wonder if anyone has pics of hydraulics in an MBZ?

Snibble is right It's like saying cool you also hear the word tight a lot to I'm sure.

"Radical"?? "Groovy"??? OMG. Anyone who ever uttered either of those words has no real reason to live.... "Cool" has been a mainline expression since at least the '60s.

Germanstar.. read my initial post carefully. :p
I only used these words to give your older age group an understanding of what the "pimpin" meant.

BTW.. didn't know the expression "cool" is THAT old.

Snibble, I did read your post carefully, and was informing you that "cool" people did not utter those other words ever, although I'm pretty sure Mike Tyson says "groovy" all the time...
