R.I.P. Chad "Pimp C" Butler 1973-2007


Of course...Bun B wrote this song about Pimp C when he was away in jail...but the song is still fitting (if not more) in his death.

Damn...its been two years already? What would Pimp C think or say about what's going on in rap right now? A whole lot I could imagine. Sometimes I forget that he's not with us physically anymore because hell, I've listened to him for years and continue to do so. You can still hear traces of his influence in rap right now actually.

I wrote a piece for XXLMag.com back when I used to have the Black Ice blog/column over there. It pretty much sums up how I feel to this day.

I'm a white dude so everyone thinks I'm tryna be ironic and funny talkin' so much about him today and how it's shitty he's gone, but really...how the fuck is he gone? You listen to those records and it's impossible to see like, headstones and obituaries, you can only see what he's talkin' about...

I dunno. My favorite rapper and rap producer. Sorely missed

R.I.P. to the Pimp. I'm search through my library for a Pimp C or UGK song and a corresponding sample.
