BREAKING: Pimp C Found Dead In Hotel Room
December 4th, 2007 | Author: Andreas Hale

Another tragic loss has hit the Hip Hop community today as Pimp C, one half of UGK, was found dead in his hotel room this morning. He was reportedly 35 years old at the time of his death.

Pimp C was an acclaimed producer and rapper from Port Arthur, Texas. With Bun B, as UGK the duo found underground anthems in "I Left It Wet For You," "Feel Like I'm The One Who's Doing Dope," and more recently with Outkast in "International Player's Anthem." Earlier this year, UGK's Underground Kingz achieved chart status previously unseen from the group. As a solo artist, Pimp C also released two albums with Rap-A-Lot Records.

The artist spent the early part of the decade incarcerated for complications due to an assault charge. His "Free Pimp C" campaign, spearheaded by Bun B, is remembered for upholding the rapper's visibility despite a three-year prison sentence.

According to TMZ, a 911 call was answered by LA County Fire which led them to the Mondrian Hotel in California. When police arrived they found the Houston rapper dead in his bed.

No word yet as to the cause of his death as this story is still developing.

HipHopDX would like to send condolences to the family and friends of Pimp C during this trying time.

UPDATE: Representatives from Jive Records, UGK's longtime label have confirmed the death to be true.

We will keep you updated as information continues to come in.

This is extremely sad. He was one of my favorite lyricists. He had gotten out of jail and I thought things were going well for him. What a horrible loss to the Rap/Hip-hop community and my prayers are with his family and friends. RIP Pimp C.

Southern rap pioneer, to the fullest. Help me get through a many days listening to UGK's music. As always, I felt like I knew him.
