Lil’ Pimp: Tricks and Treats

It was only a matter of time before the “pimps and whores are fucking amusing” genre and minimalist animation got together for some old school juvenile delinquency and exploitation: Night Shift meets South Park.

Based on the Internet series created by former rock musicians turned journalists turned directors Mark Brooks and Peter Gilstrap, Lil’ Pimp stars Ludacris as a foul-mouthed (clip) gerbil named Weathers (clip) in an animated film about a 9 year old boy who saves the pimpin’ game. The DVD will be in stores on Jan. 11th and also features Bernie Mac, Lil Kim, William Shatner and Carmen Electra.

The little boy just doesn’t seem to fit in squeaky-clean suburbia. Then one day fates intervenes in the form of a bodacious working girl, Sweet Chiffon (Lil’ Kim), who takes him to a bar called The Playground, a hip-hop wonderland where he befriends master pimp Fruit Juice (Bernie Mac) and is introduced to the world of flesh peddling.

But his new life is endangered by the machinations of the city’s duplicitous mayor Tony Gold (William Shatner). Unless Gold can be exposed for the conniving, double-crossing pondscum that he is, the Playground and the neighborhood surrounding it will be transformed into a toxic golf course.

A multitude of startling and amusing sound clips may be summoned by the not easily offended here.
