A Pimp Named Slickback (or Slickback for short, much to his chagrin) is a wealthy pimp running a brothel in Woodcrest.


He first appeared in "Guess Hoe's Coming to Dinner", when Granddad began dating his prostitute, Cristal. Slickback arrived at the Freeman house to pick up Cristal, and tried to slap her as punishment for leaving him without permission, however his hand is stopped by Robert's belt.

He made a cameo appearance in "Return of the King", but he had no speaking lines.

He later appears in the Season 2 episode "Tom, Sarah and Usher", when Tom believes that Sarah is having an affair with the singer Usher. Slickback attempted to teach Tom to gain the respect of his wife through violence and intimidation.

He also appears in "The Story of Gangstalicious Part 2", where he is brought in by Granddad to talk to Riley about sex and dissuade him from homosexuality (they all assumed that Riley was gay because he was copying Gangstalicious' clothing and mannerisms).


Not surprisingly, A Pimp Named Slickback is very misogynistic and physically abusive. Slickback pimp-slaps his prostitutes whenever he thinks they have stepped out of line. He believes that this is the way that all men should treat their women.

He is also very insistent about always being referred to by his full title "A Pimp Named Slickback", including the "A Pimp Named" part. He hates it when anyone shortens it to just "Slickback".


  • A Pimp Named Slickback is voiced by Katt Williams, and is also modeled after Williams' character of "Money Mike" in Friday After Next.
  • Some sources claim that Slickback is also modeled after the funk bassist Bootsy Collins; whose bass sound you hear in the background music when Slickback first appears.
  • He also drives a purple Lincoln Continental MK IV, which matches his purple suit.
