Pimp C lives on.
Initially, Juicy J announced he would be producing on the album, which got a lot of fans excited. The news on the project has been quiet since then, but it looks like things are picking up again.
After Bun B gave a successful tribute to the late Underground King at A3C, the estate of Pimp C released a statement regarding a new album. Besides Juicy J’s heavy contributions, you can expect the likes of Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, A$AP Rocky, as well as producers Mike Will Made-It, Warren G and more.
Read the statement below by his wife Chinara Butler.
“As the matriarch of my family, and voice of Chad Butler’s estate, I feel that it’s imperative that I make it publicly known that we do not endorse, nor have any ties to Julia Beverly’s pending unauthorized biography of Pimp C’s life. While I did meet with Julia regarding the book, I never committed our support to the project. We are working tirelessly to protect and manage the legacy my late husband built, and this book is counterproductive to our goals.
Pimp C’s estate has several projects underway that we know his fans will appreciate, including new music. After a successful Pimp C Tribute show at A3C, we’re putting the finishing touches on a new album. The project is the culmination of more than a year of work from Juicy J and myself. The project includes production contributions from Ray Murray (of Organized Noise), DJ B-Do ,CoryMo, Mike Will Made-It and Warren G, and features from Bun B, E-40,Too-Short, ASAP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, ESG, Lil KeKe, Devin The Dude, Sleepy Brown, Raheem Devaughn,Rick Ross and more. I’m also penning a book that will give the world new insight into Chad Butler, the man.
I believe that all things should be done decent and in order, but more importantly with respect. While we wish Julia the best in her endeavors, it is our desire to totally separate ourselves, and the late Mama Wes from this project.
In closing, I’d like to say thank you to the loyal Pimp C/UGK fans worldwide, keep it Trill!!”
