Pimp C. . .RIP

4 12 2007

As I’m sure most of you know, Pimp C was found dead earlier today in a hotel in Hollywood. As one half of UGK, Pimp C really was part of the foundation of Southern Hip-hop

Eulogizing after the commute

It’s tough for people outside the South to really understand what Pimp C and Bun B mean to the music here, but suffice to say that there are only a few artists in all of Southern hip-hop history that earned the kind of respect UGK has amongst their peers and fans. It’s basically Scarface, Outkast, DJ Screw, Eightball and MJG, and UGK that really paved the way for the South to even have a major lane in hip-hop

So this Pimp C thing hits hard. UGK was like the southern version of EPMD to me so Pimp C dyin might as well be Parrish Smith dead. I was supposed to be writing this Ghostface review but fuck that. Nothing but UGK for the next couple days out of respect for slick talkin trill nigga with soul Pimp C.
