Pimp C‘s ability to turn his day-to-day dealings in Port Arthur, Texas into an audio-cinematic experience is unmatched, triggering the widespread usage of many words and phrases from his vernacular like “ridin’ dirty,” smoke somethin’,” and “trill.” To commemorate Pimp C’s contributions and massive impact on the world of music, Mass Appeal is presenting a tribute show to the late superstar hosted by fellow UGK member Bun B.
The show will also serve as an appetizer to the release of new material from the Estate of Pimp C via Mass Appeal Records. The project will be his final album and features exclusive new material from the Underground King. With multiple productions on the project being overseen by frequent collaborator and good friend Juicy J, you can definitely count on the album having guest appearances from some of hip hop’s biggest names today.
The tribute to Pimp C, which is presented in conjunction with Stance Socks, will most definitely be a highlight of the 10th anniversary of the A3C festival which will take place on October 11th, 2014 at A3C’s Main Stage in Old 4th Ward. A3C passes will be required to attend this epic tribute show. Stay tuned for the announcement of the show’s full line up.
