We have with us today a man who

is so much a part of the culture...

that he scarcely needs

an introduction.

Pootie Tang.

Good to have you here with us.


You've had incredible success...

and you've had it

in a variety of fields--

music, films,

martial arts, pottery.

How do you do it?

Well, Bob, I'm a pone toni.

- Got my dillies on a peppatain.

- I hear that.

Now, Pootie, a lot of young artists

say that you are their inspiration.

Well, I can't say

the nay-no, my brother.


You got a new movie

coming out, right?

Yeah. Yes, it's called

Sine Your Pitty on the Runny Kine.

- And who's in it besides yourself?

- Oh, well, there's Trucky...

Bad Bitty, Dirty Dee...

Lacey, J B...

Biggie Shorty

and Robert Vaughn.

- You have a clip to show us?

- Yeah, baby.

All right, let's take

a look then at this clip...

from Pootie Tang's new movie,

Sine Your Pitty on the Runny Kine.

It was the year 2001.

It was the best of times.

It was the worst of times.

The big city was thriving,

but the inner city was dying.

Who was killing it?

This man. Dick Lecter.

The head

of corporate America.

But the people had hope because

they knew that there was one man...

who could fight the power.

One man who could stop

the madness.

One man who could beat

Dick Lecter like the LAPD.

And that man--

that man was Pootie Tang.

See that guy? That's Bad Bitty.

The baddest drug dealer

in town.

Hey, Bad Bitty,

here comes Dirty Dee.

Dirty bastard!

That's Dirty Dee,

the dirtiest dude around.

He handles all

of corporate America's dirty work.

Next to Dirty Dee,

that's Froggy, the Enforcer.

Yo, Bad Bitty!

How you be?

I'm bad, Dirty Dee.

You're still dirty, I can see.

Let's deal, baby.

- You got yours?

- Froggy.

- It's dirty money.

- You got yours?


But how do I know

if they any good?

Let's test'em out.

Hey, kid! Come over here!

That's kid,

the dumbest kidin town.

- What you want, mister?

- Here. Have some of this.

- Is it candy?

- Told you.

Yeah. It's the kind of candy

that you smoke out of a pipe.

Pipe candy.


Yea! Pootie Tang.

You a baddy

daddy lamatai tebby chai.

Get that Pootie!

That's a canapan,

all the way down.

You mother--

Shut up, b*tch!

Okay, I quit.

And it's no thang

He's that Pootie Tang

Somebody's on the floor

It's another

smooth-talkin' brother

Everybody's lookin' at him

As he puts his tie down

the ladies on the dance floor

He's got the whole world

wrapped around his finger

A one-woman man

and you know he understands

Casanova with a fancy car

You can tell

He's got it all

He's on the money

And he's maintained

He knows what he wants

He's got it all

He'll sine your pitty

And it's no thang

He's that Pootie Tang

He's hip to the core

Got a belt buckle locket

You know where he got it

He's a player by trade

And you can see him on the corner

doing business on his tippi tai

He's the C.E.O.

of his own world

He commands R-E-S-P-E-C-

And you know he's

good to go all night

He's got it all

He's on the money

And he's maintained

He knows what he wants

He's got it all

He'll sine your pitty

And it's no thang

He's that Pootie Tang
