This moody downtempo tune shows the influence of Latin styles and Jamaican reggae in early 1970's Trinidadian music culture. The theme is said to be derived from Venzuela and was adapted by rapper 50 Cent for his massive smash "P.I.M.P.". Chief Mocambo engineer Steven "Def Stef" Tantrum did a wonderful job in restoring the old 8-track tape and mixing the track.

I just heard this recently on a mix. Immediately I thought that this was a carribean steel band covering an instrumental version of 50cent's 'pimp'. Lo and behold this was made in the 70s and 50 copped it? Should have known better. Shame on me!
