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. Stream Pimp C’s posthumous Long Live the Pimp after the jump.

Rick Ross is set to drop his eight solo album Black Market this Friday (Dec. 4th) and he’s teasing the project with another track in “Color Money,” which may or may not be addressing the ongoing beef between MMG signee Meek Mill and Drake. “My lil’ homie made a million on his girl’s tour/ We back to back and down to wack a nigga unborn,” he raps over D. Rich’s menacing beat that’s accentuated by haunting church bells and snappy snares. Additionally, the track’s title is derived from an incident where Florida rapper Plies was thrown off the stage and pounced on by a group of attendees — you can watch the video here if you wish. Hit the jump to bump the latest banger from Ricky Rozay.

Queen Erykah Badu, who recently released her excellent But U Caint Use My Phone mixtape, hosted the Soul Train Music Awards on BET and Centric last night in Las Vegas. Thankfully Badu isn’t one to mince her words as she threw some serious shade at Iggy Azalea, which that drew a booming reaction from the audience. During the monologue, Badu — pretending to speak on a phone — turned away André 3000 and Young Thug from the ceremony, saying she’s “banning all rap this year.” However, when Azalea calls Badu, she makes an exception: “No no no, you can come, ’cause what you’re doing is definitely not rap.” Oh shi– Watch it all unfold below.
