SEATTLE, Washington - From the 1999 Hughes Brothers documentary American Pimp, pimps in response to the question of what "cut" their prostitutes get:
Schauntte: "What cut they get? Oh no. They ain't get no cut."And now in an trial that opened yesterday of an alleged West Seattle pimp:
Charm: "No percentage."
Bishop Don Magic Juan: "Zero Percentage."
Kenny Red: "A bitch of mine better not keep a dime."
Fillmore Slim: "None. None."
Danny Brown: "If one of my women had proven to be stronger than me, a better manager than me, then she could have been the leader. But I was the master of the house, I was the leader of the program, so all the money came to me. It wasn't like I had part of the money, she had part of the money - that's like, a divided situation."
Clark is accused of pimping out three women, including two girls, through a prostitution ring run by a West Seattle gang, the West Side Street Mobb.
That, [Prosecutor Sean]O'Donnell told jurors, is Mobb with two Bs.
"Mobb is spelled M-O-B-B, and it stands for Money Over Broke Bitches," O'Donnell said. "And you will find that money is a recurring theme in this case. …
"You will find that this gang has an almost singular purpose. Money, money, money."
