      Pimp C of UGK found dead


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      Pimp C, real name Chad Butler -- and one half of the rap duo UGK, was found dead in a hotel room this morning. He was 33.

      L.A. County Fire responded to a 911 call at the Mondrian Hotel, located on trendy Sunset Strip in Hollywood. They arrived to his sixth floor hotel room to find him dead in bed.

      UGK is best known for appearing on the Jay-Z track "Big Pimpin'" in 2000, and more recently with Outkast on the song "International Player's Anthem (I Choose You)." Pimp C had just performed with fellow rapper Too Short at the "House of Blues" in L.A. on Saturday night.


      I know a few said they listen to UGK so I figured I would post this...peace

      Thanks for posting that...that's a damn shame. I was just thinking about his single with Outkast and the fact that he JUST got out of jail...

      I barely know who he is... only from that Jay-Z song. No cause of death reported?

      He was so young. I grew up on a steady diet of UGK. RIP

      Here's an ironic/weird/scary thought... today is Jay-Z's birthday. That thought just crossed my mind as I looked at a calender. Pimp C died on Jay-Z's birthday.

      Same here, love.

      Not too many people know just how musically-inclined this Brother truly was.

      UGK, P.A. G's 4 Life. Always represented the SUC to the fullest. R.I.P. Chad Butler a.k.a. Pimp C a.k.a. Sweet Jones.

      Does anyone know a cause of death yet? "911 call"... "found dead in bed". Very vague.

      I got a text early this afternoon, I was like what happened? I guess they still don't know. I hope he ain't OD, he was only in his early 30s. He used to talk some real talk sometimes (with the requisite amount of BS).

      The post on this thread reminds me of the way crakkas in AMerikkka acted when Ronald Reagan died.

      I dont mean to be cruel, but didnt this cat make music degrading black women and men? Encouraged the use of black on black violence and drug selling?

      Damn, I would have thought Stick from dead prez had passed or something!

      i have never heard of him before, but ask those who knew his music, raha said he was good. his name doesnt give me a very good image tho.

      but trust me Kefentse, if stick had died the thread would look like this at all.

      Yeah, people don't realize...Mike Jones,Ray Cash, and others....
      their style...repeating of lyrics and things...thats from Pimp C.
      Its very unfortunate.

      Definately his life and work will be remembered and continue to inspire other rappers and listeners...He was an artist.

      Rest With Peace...
