Clarence Page has an amusing take on hip-hop culture and the odd glorification of pimps. The opener is especially amusing:

As marketing schemes go, the hip-hop music star Nelly risks sending a lot of mixed signals with the name of the new energy drink he’s marketing.

It’s called “Pimp Juice.”

I could be wrong, but “Pimp Juice” does not sound to me like something that you want to put in your mouth.

No joke.
