WATCH: “LONG LIVE THE PIMP” DOCUMENTARY ON LIFE & LEGACY OF PIMP C (@ComplexMag @TheRealPimpC)

SMOKE SUMMIN BIIITTTCH!! Chad “Pimp C” Butler is hands down one of the most influential persons in Hip-Hop I’ve witnessed come onto the scene within my lifetime. I remember first finding out about UGK when I was young and asked myself “Why are they drinking that colorful stuff out of baby bottles? What is that in the baby bottles anyway?” I was in for a surprise once I actually found out a few years later. Pimp’s influence stretches far beyond the confines of Southern culture. While many people may hate to admit it, Uncle Chad (as I like to call him) is responsible for a lot of the slang we speak and (*cough cough* TRILL) different lines that were originally lyrics but are now words to live by. If you’re like me and a follower of Pimp’s fellowship then this documentary touched and inspired you. If you aren’t familiar with Pimp I advise you to literally “SMOKE SUMMIN” and soak up some game via this documentary that was put together by the good folks over at Mass Appeal and Complex Mag. While you’re at it, please check his posthumously released album “Long Live the Pimp” which came out late last year. RIP PIMP C.
