“Hey Papi” was the second single released from the soundtrack to Eddie Murphy’s 2000 comedy film Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.

Released in July to continue his Summer dominating run after the huge success of “Big Pimpin',” Jay-Z enlisted his Roc-A-Fella Records protégés Memphis Bleek and Amil to join him in offering a tale of love and commitment: thug style. The single reached #12 on Billboard’s “Hot Rap Singles,” and peaked at #76 on the Billboard “Hot 100.”
