Pimp C, 1973-2007
I'm deeply saddened by the passing of Pimp C earlier today. Underground Kingz is among my favorite albums of 2007. "Like Houston in July, it's sprawling, steamy and imbued with a nasty funk," I wrote in my year-end recap. Rather than posting an MP3, as I ordinarily would, I'm embedding this YouTube version of "Living This Life." The curious may also want to view this set of promotional videos. Pimp C makes refreshingly candid statements at the 3:53 and the 9:10 marks. I suspect he lived his life with the same candor.
