Bun B, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky Attached to Posthumous Pimp C Album
Published Oct 14, 2014There have been no shortage of posthumous verses from Pimp C since he passed away in 2007. That said, the late Underground Kingz member has more material on the way via a star-studded new album.
The artist born Chad Lamont Butler is survived by his wife Chinara Butler, and she recently revealed that he'll be the subject of a new solo album.
"Pimp C's estate has several projects underway that we know his fans will appreciate, including new music," she said. "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."
While it's unclear when the album will drop, the project is said to include production from Mike WiLL Made It, Warren G, CoryMo and Organized Noize's Ray Murray. The album will also include guest verses from E-40, Too $hort, A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown, ESG, Lil KeKe, Devin the Dude, Sleepy Brown, Rick Ross and UGK member Bun B, among others.
Chinara also revealed that she's working on a memoir. "I'm also penning a book that will give the world new insight into Chad Butler, the man," she said.
Pimp C passed away on December 4, 2007, due to respiratory depression after he overdosed on promethazine and codeine.
