When Port Arthur, Texas rapper Pimp C passed away in 2007, he left behind a legacy spanning over two decades. During his time in UGK, Pimp rapped and produced some of the group’s most memorable songs; from their watershed 1996 album Ridin’ Dirty to “International Players Anthem (I Choose You)” in 2007 — the year of his untimely death — his music will certainly live on forever. All things considered, it’s only right for a posthumous Pimp album to ultimately manifest today. “This album is the culmination of years of work from not just me, but also the amazing artists and producers who contributed to make it happen,” his widow Chinara Butler says of Long Live the Pimp. “It combines several of the ideas and projects my husband began before his untimely passing. We hope the Trill fans enjoy it.” And with guests that include Bun B, Nas, T.I., Juicy J, A$AP Rocky, Slim Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, and many more, Long Live the Pimp is a 17-track long effort that will not only keep long time fans of Pimp C (and UGK) satisfied but give new listeners a taste of what made him so special to the rap game.

Juicy J is dropping another mixtape for 2015, this time with 100% Juice. 100% Juice follows the release of February’s Blue Dream & Lean 2 and arrives with features from Lil Herb, Wiz Khalifa, Project Pat, Future, Boosie Badazz, Lil Wayne and August Alsina. It’s pretty dope overall and definitely an improvement over Blue Dream & Lean 2, which I felt to be a little underwhelming. Anyway, peep 100% Juice after the jump. It’s available for stream and download, however you prefer.
Juicy J, hot off of releasing his Blue Dream & Lean 2 mixtape, is dropping the visuals for “Whole Thang,” which is on the aforementioned mixtape. It also features Wiz Khalifa, who has been having himself a low key great year. Check out “Whole Thang” after the jump.
Poor T-Pain, the dude really does get the short end of the stick when it comes to this hip-hop sh*t. But this new track “Make That Shit Work”, produced by DJ Mustard and featuring Juicy J makes a strong argument for Pain’s relevancy in the 2010s. Judging by the sound of “Make That Sh*t Work” Pain definitely may be sitting on some radio/club gold here. Listen after the jump and be the judge yourself.

After A$AP Mob officially scrapped their highly anticipated, long gestating crew album a week ago fans seemingly began to lose hope for the Harlem collective. That is, of course, until founder A$AP Yams announced that A$AP Rocky’s album is “up next”. And today we receive perhaps the first single off said album, “Multiply” featuring Memphis legend (and everyone’s favorite) Juicy J. Some noteworthy lyrics from Rocky: “Come to Harlem if you’ve never seen Baghdad”. Video after the jump.
