?Atlanta’s Hip Hop community?reeling?over the unexpected?death of UGK’s Pimp C.?? Rashan Ali of Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9’s “The A-Team” spoke this morning about her efforts to honor UGK at their annual?Dirty Awards. DJ. Drama gave UGK credit for paving the way for southern artists and while Andre 3000’s rep said he had no comment, Big Boi issued the following comment:
First and foremost my prayers go out to Pimp C?s family and Bun B. He was a dear friend and colleague, one of the most honorable men in the game. He will definitely be missed, but his legacy will live on through the music of UGK and Bun B.? (Source)
UGK?will not be the same without the voice of Pimp C.
Pimp C of UGK (aka Chad Butler) was found dead in an L.A. hotel earlier today.?? There were no signs of foul play and no evidence of drug use.???All signs point to natural causes but he was only 33 years old.?
To a mainstream audience, Pimp C was best known for UGK’s cameo on the Jay-Z hit “Big Pimpin’,” and for “Free Pimp C” T-shirts and shout-outs, ubiquitous in rap several years ago while he was jailed on gun charges. On Tuesday, his MySpace page had been changed to read: “C the Pimp is FREE at last.”?(Source)

Isn’t it wonderful when we all come together for a great cause!!
The Feds are attempting to freeze Michael Vick’s assets?in order to ensure they receive $1 Million dollars for the costs to care for the 48 dogs that were originally in Vick’s care.??WTF???
Vick’s “deteriorating financial condition,” his recent push to sell off property, and several lawsuits against him prompted the motion, according to court papers and federal authorities.
The tab for the 48 pit bulls staying at unidentified animal shelters in Virginia is estimated at $928,000, according to the motion. (Source)
I feel like sitting under a white sheet with my M.A.C. smokey grey eyeliner and yelling (in my best Chris Crocker impression)
“LEAVE MICHAEL ALONE…..LEAVE ‘EM A-LONE!!!“
Everyday it’s something….haven’t they done enough to that man….dayum!? I know that we all have differences in opinion about this case and I have read (and experienced) that the divide is greatest amongst Blacks and Whites.?? It’s so sad that this has turned into a racial matter and I know that there will never be a consensus on what’s right or wrong but Mike has my support and always will.
