Upon its release, “P.I.M.P.” was a significant commercial success, especially in the United States, where it peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100, while reaching the top ten of numerous national charts worldwide. The song was later certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Although the remix was not originally part of the track listing for Get Rich or Die Tryin’, it was later added as a bonus track on some digital editions of the album.
The video had 50 Cent trying to audition to become a member of the P.I.M.P. Legion of Doom that is led by Snoop Dogg’s character. When asked why they should let him join the P.I.M.P. Legion of Doom as he doesn’t have a Cadillac and/or a perm, 50 Cent ends up winning their favor by showing off his Magic Stick.
