After being mocked in a series of "Pimpin' Curly" video clips by 50 Cent, Kenneth "Pimpin' Ken" Ivy has responded to the rap star's jokes via his own recorded skit.
The renowned entertainer takes time to address Fif's impersonation of a pimp while also mocking the rapper with a look-a-like called "Pretty Curly."
"Y'all wanna see what my response to 50 is," Ken asks the camera before introducing viewers to a spoofed version of Pimpin' Curly sniffing cocaine. "Motherf*ckers talkin' that motherf*ckin' sh*t behind my back, hold on, let me take another motherf*ckin' hit...Motherf*ckin' Pimpin' Ken, you said, crown me don't down me. I wanna be just like you when I grow up...You straight motherf*ckin' paid. As a matter of fact, G-Unot! Get the f*ck outta my face." (Pimpin' Ken)
In 50's first "Pimpin' Curly" clip, he took on the persona of a jheri curled pimp justifying the purchases he made for Rick Ross' baby's mother, Tia.
"Eh, I got to address some sh*t real quick," Fif says in the clip. "Motherf*ckin' Pimpin' Ken gonna say I ain't motherf*ckin' pimpin'. N*gga you don't know a pimp when you see a motherf*ckin' pimp? Cause I bought a b*tch a couple of fur coats, n*gga? What about the money we gonna make off the book? Ain't that pimpin', pimpin'?" (SOHH TV)
Along with being featured on 50's Sabrina's Baby Boy mixtape, Ken has also released the book Pimpology: The 48 Laws of the Game.
In Pimpology, star of the documentaries Pimps Up, Ho's Down and American Pimp and Annual Players Ball Mack of the Year winner Ken Ivy pulls a square's coat on the unwritten rules that took him from the ghetto streets to the executive suites. Ken's lessons will serve any person in any interaction: Whether at work, in relationships, or among friends, somebody's got to be on top. To be the one with the upper hand, you've got to have good game, and good game starts with knowing the rules. (Amazon)
Fif's latest "Pimpin' Curly" episode focused on Ross arresting Chris Brown.
"Even though he has huge rap dreams, Officer Ricky still takes his career as a police officer very seriously as he chases down Chris Brown, the latest in his quest to lock up all of the music industry," the episode's description reads. "Officer Ricky then hangs out with some of his NYPD buddies and shoots a music video right in New York City [including Foxy Brown, DJ Khaled and Fat Joe.] Damn 50, take that!" (This Is 50)
