Clarence Sims (born 1935) better known as Fillmore Slim is a blues singer and guitarist with four albums to his credit. During the 1960's and 1970's, he was also a highly renowned pimp in San Francisco, often referred to as "The West Coast Godfather of the Game" and "The Pope of Pimping". Born and raised in New Orleans, Fillmore began learning about the blues at an early age. "I done lived the blues," he once said in an interview. "The blues is about picking cotton, working in the fields, living on the streets, and you know I did all these things."
