"Police said that Andre Taylor bragged about the pimp he had been and flaunted the fruits of his trade -- a $300,000 home with custom furnishings, a black Mercedes Benz and gold jewelry.
He had cut a demonstration rap compact disc entitled "The Big Pimp" under the name "Gorgeous Dre," although 2,000 of them were still sitting in his garage. He also told police he had been the technical consultant on the movie "American Pimp."
Being raised by a pimp father and prostitute mother was carried by him as a badge of achievement, a heritage that set him apart and above. He chided lawmen as people unable to understand and appreciate the life he had been born to.
And Taylor told police in Las Vegas and Los Angeles that none of his women would ever speak ill of him, sign a complaint against him or point a finger accusingly at him, according to testimony Tuesday at his preliminary hearing.
But two of them did -- one willingly and the other reluctantly and only under the threat of perjury.
Taylor is now headed for trial in District Court and will be sitting in the county jail in blue coveralls rather than the slick suit he had worn for the photo with three beautiful women that graces his CD cover."
