    Big Pimpin'" is the fifth and final single from rapper Jay-Z's fourth album Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter. It features rapping by Southern hip hop group UGK as well as production by Timbaland. The song by Jay-Z was based loosely around Tha Dogg Pound's major hit Big Pimpin', which was released in 1997. Timbaland samples "Khosara", composed by Egyptian composer Baligh Hamdi in the mid-20th century and originally recorded by the famous Egyptian vocalist Abdel Halim Hafez for the track's beat leading to its Middle Eastern sound. A version of "Khosara", arranged and performed by Hossam Ramzy, can be heard on a CD compilation entitled, “The Best of Bellydance from Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey” which also contains another song that Timbaland sampled for the Petey Pablo track, "Raise Up". In 2007, the song sparked controversy when a copyright co-owner of the sampled track Osama Ahmed Fahmy filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Federal Court, alleging that Timbaland illegally replayed portions of "Big Pimpin" note-for-note, using a melody lifted from the song. Jay-Z, Timbaland, Linkin Park and EMI Music Inc. were among the defendants named in the lawsuit. (Linkin Park because the track was also mashed up with their song "Papercut" on the collaborative EP Collision Course in 2004).[1] The Linkin Park mash-up was entitled "Big Pimpin/Papercut".
