In the words, well, question, of Elliott Wilson, “who lit a fire under Hip-Hop’s ass?” It’s no secret there has been an abundant amount of quality music to hit the e-streets and the trend continues with new UGK. That’s right, new UGK. To be critical, Bun B is featured on this Pimp C record, but that’s just splitting hairs at this point and any time we can receive new music from this iconic duo is a win and should not be discredited for such trivial purposes. And to make matters even better, The ‘Sip’s own, and UGK alumni, Big K.R.I.T., receives the posthumous co-sign from Chad while riding shotgun with Bun with the feature film presentation “Grippin’ On The Wood.”
How Krizzle and Pimp would sound on the same track has been debated and pondered since the moment K.R.I.T. Wuz Here exploded on the scene because the former’s voice inflections conjuring memories of the late wood grain gripper. This is as about as close as we’re going to get, so appreciate it for what it is. “Grippin’…” demonstrates their patent Port Arthur slow, intoxicating and commanding vibe for anyone desiring to ride to this doing two miles an hour so everyone’ll see you. Go ahead and try it for yourself.
Now, if this track came from left field, what I’m about to say wasn’t even able to purchase a ticket inside the stadium. Still Pimpin’, a brand new album, touches down July 12 with features from the previously mentioned two, Slim Thug, Too Short, Cory Mo and more. So, how’s that for good news on a Hump Day?
