I came on here ready to post some silly shit about dinosaurs when I saw that Pimp C, one half of the group UGK and one my favorite rappers, was found dead in a hotel room in LA. He was 33. I’m sick of this bullshit.

EDIT:
I want to make up a tribute mix, but I don’t have time right now and I’m too mad. So here are a couple things just to show some love…

Pimp C was a true everything man from a hip hop point of view. He could rap, produce, sing, even dance a little bit. But what made him a consummate entertainer is the fact that he had the meanest interview game in music. He was was always funny and honest and through the sheer strength of his charisma could make you entertain even the most ridiculous of arguments. For example, here’s a clip of an interview he gave with 107.9 FM in Atlanta in which he (seriously) attempts to convince the hosts that Georgia isn’t in the south.

There’s too much of his music that I’d like to share, but for now here is the most appropriate choice – “One day” off the (stone cold) classic album Ridin’ Dirty.

Here’s the lyrics to C’s verse:
I’m up early, cause ain’t enough light in the daytime
Smoke two sweets, and stove these chickens
fo’ the clock strikes nine
Bring that ho to my boulder, smolder on the P.A. pipes
AK loader, as i get swallowed under city lights
Niggas be lookin shife, so i look shife back
Can’t show no weakness with these bitches, get yo life jacked
Man it’s a trip where i stay, especially for me
These bitches tryin to lock me up for the whole century
They gave my nigga Donnie 40, Donte 19
I wish that we could smoke again and take a tight lean
The world a trip you can ask Bun B bitch I ain’t no liar
My man Bobo just lost his baby in a house fire
and when I got on my knees that night to pray
I asked God “why you let these killers live,
and take my homebody’s son away?”
Man if you got kids show ‘em you love em
cuz God just might call ‘em home
Cuz one day they here
baby the next day they’re gone…

Finally, here’s the video for “International Player’s Anthem”. Vintage UGK and, in my opinion, the best video of 2007:

Love to the whole Butler family and his partner in rhyme Bun B.

EDIT 2:
Here’s an amazing, heart-breaking interview with Bun B on 97.9 in Houston.
