Sports radio host Jim Rome bills himself as the 
"pimp-in-the-box".  MTV verbs "pimp" in the show
titled "Pimp my Ride" (in other words, "trick out 
my car").

FWIW, as I found out while chatting with my 15yo niece, for a lot of
today's younger people, "pimp" has only slang meanings and no literal
meaning. My niece was shocked! shocked! when I explained that literal
meaning to her.
