The Gift Of Gab II: Five Legendary Pimp C Interviews

“You know how The Pimp be/That n*gga gon’ speak his mind…”Young Jeezy

If the old adage proves true, “time flies when you’re having fun,” time also speeds by when reminiscing on the loss of a loved one. As crazy as it sounds, next month will mark four years since the death of Chad Butler. Hip-Hop has moved forward, but never forgotten about Pimp C, whose sheer presence helped define not only classic songs and albums, but an entire region and era. Like others before him, an endearing quality to The Pimp’s legacy was his interview presence.

He was funny when he needed to be. Other times he was ignorant, loud and venomous. And then on various occasions, he was insightful, diplomatic, reflective and the man who strived to be the change he hoped to see in his community. Like Tupac before him, a collection of Pimp C interviews showcasing all the sides of Chad will be on full display. Don’t get it twisted however. This isn’t to mourn that Sweet Jones is gone; consider this more of a celebration of what we were all blessed with for two full decades.

You should already know what it is by now. UGK for life.
