***Shout Out 2: C's Fam & Bun B
AS IT HAS BEEN READ FROM TMZ NEWS & www.sohh.com THAT C's DEATH WAS THE CAUSE OF AN ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE INSTEAD OF NATURAL CAUSES. WE ALL KNOW THAT UGK WAS FEATURED ON THREE SIX MAFIA'S SONG "SIZZURP". THATS AN ILLEGAL DRUG USE (SOUTHERN SLANG) MIXING CODEINE (MEDICINE) WITH AN DRUG RELATED DRINK. NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT ON THE BACK OF THE MEDICINE BOTTLES THEY TELL US NOT TO TAKE THE MEDICINE WITH ACOHOL. WELL IN THE EVENT OF IT TAKEN PLACE THERE WAS A CLAIM THAT PIMP C HAD A SLEEPING DISORDER WHICH CAUSED HIM TO STOP BREATHING AT SOME POINTS. PIMP C USE TO DRING SYRUP A LOT SO THE PRESS IS SAYING THAT HE DIDNT DIE FROM NATURAL CAUSES, HE DIED FROM TO MUCH CODEINE TAKING IN. DJ SCREW DIED OF A HEART ATTACK AND THEY SAID THAT MOSTLY THE SYRUP PLAYED A MAJOR PART IN HIS DEATH. AS WELL AS THE RAPPER BIG MOE WHO DIED LAST OCTOBER.
FOR EVERYONES F.Y.I. IF U R ON THAT SYRUP I SUGGEST YOU LEAVE THAT ALONE!
REST EASILY CHAD "PIMP C" BUTLER!

Early in the afternoon on Thursday, December 6, Bun B called VIBE from his home and gave his first interview since his dear friend and UGK cohort, Pimp C, passed away in a Los Angeles hotel room.
VIBE: What memory of Pimp C stands out the most to you?
BUN B: So many changes and phases of life. I think on a good day, on a great day, I couldn't point my finger at one thing. So many different memories: The day we signed, our first video, the first time we heard ourselves on the radio. So many different things. Most of my greatest moments in life, my greatest achievements, came standing right next to him, you know? So it's hard to pinpoint any one thing. So many different moments.
How did it feel seeing him for the first time after he was released from prison in 2005?
Man. UGK was at a place where everything he wanted it to be was finally getting there. Everything he wanted to get from it, he was about to receive. The love, the admiration and respect - not just from fans but also from peers and even journalists. And people understanding what he was trying to impress upon people, what he represented and where he represented it from and just how we lived and who we are as people. And I was just so happy that he was able to come back home and experience different things. I didn't want all the fun to be gone before he had a chance to have them.
When Pimp was alive, he was outspoken, hilarious, and didn't seem to care what other people thought about him. Do you feel like he was misunderstood or underappreciated during the time he was here?
He was not one to really be concerned, to a certain extent, about if people liked him. He wanted the people he cared about and he loved to love him. But for a lot of people, I think maybe he just was too honest. He was ready to tell how he felt about himself. He was ready to tell you how he felt about you. And I'm sure people would try to equate it with a lot of recent events, but anybody who knows Pimp C for any extended period of time knows that when you asked Pimp for his opinion, that's what you got. You didn't get the little "Oh, yeah, sure! No problem!" pat on the back type of answer that muthafuckas give you. Usually when you ask a person something… some people tend to ask things in a way to get a certain type of response from certain people, but you don't ask those questions to Pimp C. You don't ask Pimp C, "Do you like this?" if you really really don't want to know if he likes it or not, you know? [laughs]. And if anyone had a problem with him, that might've been it. Like, "God, what is he gonna say about me that I probably don't want to hear?" And even the people that he loved, he was gonna tell them how he felt about something, even if they weren't ready to hear it. But it was never from ill will. It was always out of love and respect and him wanting you to be the best you could be.
Thinking back on his music, what do you think gave Pimp C his edge as a producer?
He literally shaped a sound, and created a musical portrait for people who weren't from the South. I think he tried to put a lot of the music that he listened to growing up into [his music], and also he was a great student of music. He had a lot of respect for the musicians before him. And his father, of course, was a musician, so you definitely had to be old guard to respect what we were doing. We were trying to make good music and real music. He had a real ear for music. He knew what people liked and wanted, sometimes before they did. And he was the type of person who'd come into your studio session and tell you what was wrong with your record because it all boils down to his level of attention. He'd be like, "Man, your drums ain't right." And he's not just telling you that because he felt like his drums were better than yours, but he'd just be like, "You're drums ain't right. It's not jamming like you think it is."
Pimp was in Los Angeles when he was found dead. Were you with him?
