Pimp C's mom: 'Pray for his family'

10:20 AM CST on Wednesday, December 5, 2007

Associated Press and KHOU.com staff reports

L.A. officials comment on Pimp C's death




Jeremy Desel's 11 News report LOS ANGELES -- Pimp C, who spun searing tales of Texas street life into a key role in the rise of Southern hip-hop, was found dead in an upscale hotel on Tuesday. He was 33.

The rapper formed Underground Kingz with partner-in-rhyme Bun B while the pair was in high school, and their often laconic delivery paired with wittily dangerous lyrics influenced a generation of current superstars like Lil’ Wayne. T.I. had the group on as guests when he remade their 1994 song “Front, Back and Side to Side” for his “King” album.

To a mainstream audience, Pimp C was best known for UGK’s cameo on the Jay-Z hit “Big Pimpin’,” and for “Free Pimp C” T-shirts and shout-outs, ubiquitous in rap several years ago while he was jailed on gun charges. On Tuesday, his MySpace page had been changed to read: “C the Pimp is FREE at last.”

Born Chad Butler, Pimp C was found dead in a room at the Mondrian hotel, a longtime music industry hangout not far from the House of Blues on Sunset Strip, where he had performed on Saturday night alongside rap veteran Too $hort. Capt. Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said Butler had apparently died while in bed in his hotel room.

“At this time there’s no signs of foul play,” Winter said. “It appears to be possibly natural, but pending autopsy and toxicology we can’t say the cause.”

Manager Rick Martin identified Butler and his death was announced by publicist Nancy Byron.

“This morning saw the loss of a man that was not only a client, but a very dear friend at a time when he had the most to live for,” Martin said in a statement. “He was my best friend and I will always love him.”

Butler's mother, Wes Monroe, still lives in Port Arthur.

"The support has been tremendous. It has been overwhelming," Monroe said. "Almost everybody I know, family, friends, artists, other entertainers, the phone won't stop ringing. It feels good, if anything can feel good right now."

She told KFDM-TV that her son started working with Bernard Freeman in 1988 in Port Arthur. She said "someone should get a medal" if they knew how he came up with the name Pimp C.

"He told me one day that was going to be his name," said Monroe. "I never thought he'd make it anyway."

Though they never enjoyed massive pop chart success, UGK’s early CDs are considered landmarks for the then-burgeoning Texas hip-hop scene, which also featured the Geto Boys. Signed to a deal with Jive Records, they released “Too Hard to Swallow” in 1992, “Super Tight” two years later, and “Ridin’ Dirty” in 1996, considered a rap classic.

Over laid-back beats, they laid out incisive details that remain Southern rap mainstays: descriptions of sex and conspicuous consumption, wood-grain steering wheels and triple-beam scales used to weigh drugs.

The duo’s career was derailed when Pimp C was jailed for three years in 2002 on gun charges. But he got as much exposure as ever, as the “Free Pimp C” slogan spread.

An unauthorized album of Pimp C’s freestyle rhymes was released while he was in prison. When he and Bun B finally put out an album this year, they felt such a need to re-establish themselves they titled their album “Underground Kingz,” as if to underscore a new start.

Critics praised the CD, which included the hit “International Player’s Anthem (I Choose You),” featuring OutKast. Pimp C’s verse riffs on high-class women and cars: “I’m pullin’ Bentleys off the lot. Smashed up the gray one, bought me a red. Everytime we hit the parking lot we turn heads,” he raps.

Barry Weiss, CEO of Jive, said in a statement: “We mourn the unexpected loss of Chad. He was truly a thoughtful and kindhearted person. He will be remembered for his talent and profound influence as a pioneer in bringing southern rap to the forefront.”

Butler, who grew up in Port Arthur, Texas, came from a musical lineage. His father was a professional trumpet player, and the rapper studied classical music in high school. He even received a Division I rating on a tenor solo at a University Interscholastic League choir competition.

Pimp C's mother, Wes Monroe.
“That’s how I came up listening to everything,” he told The Associated Press in a 2005 interview. “Music don’t have no color or no face. It’s a universal language. I think being exposed to all that kind of stuff influences the way I make records.”

Pimp C is survived by a wife and three children.

you're little...and ur getting up there in age so thats all i gotta say about that.

and no, mourning is one thing, but when people turn out to be all of a sudden closet sean taylor fans and now they are experssing it in his death...just like with the case here. No one almost knew about UGK 2 years ago (cept the southern guys and big hip hop fans) and now all of a sudden everyone is a fan.

c'mon rae, don't be a little dickhead.
