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.

Milwaukee native WebsterX is sharing his KidX project, which is inspired by British alternative group Radiohead and their landmark album, Kid A. According to WebsterX’s SoundCloud page, the EP was partly inspired by the album’s themes — including darkness and depression — that have, in turn, found their way into the soundscapes of these three songs. Filled with refreshing sounds that are worthy of a listen or two — it’s ten minutes — KidX is both ambitious and exciting. Check out Milwaukee’s WebsterX take on the challenge of Radiohead’s Kid A on KidX after the jump.

You remember O.T. Genasis, right? Oh, what, the name doesn’t sound familiar to you? Okay, just in case you forgot or amnesia is suddenly contagious, O.T. was the rapper that suddenly dropped one track late last year in “CoCo”. You know: I’m in love with the coco. That song. Yikes, kinda embarrassed to even be typing that in 2015. Well, basically he’s got a mixtape out: It’s called Rhythm & Bricks. There’s like, a bunch of songs on it, production from producers, and raps from rappers. Cool. If you’re into that sort of stuff, peep O.T. Genasis’ Rhythm & Bricks after the jump.

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.

Not sure if anyone reading this is looking out for B.o.B anymore but he’s just released a new project — a mixtape — entitled Psycadelik Thoughtz. PT (because I vehemently refuse to repeat that album title again) is B.o.B’s first full-length project since January’s uneven No Genre: The Label mixtape. Here B.o.B offers up eleven new tracks (including the previously released single “Back & Forth”) with approximately two guest spots — neither of which pertain to hip hop, exactly. If you’re one of those people still checking in for some new Bobby Ray then this latest project, PT, is right for you. Check it out after the jump. It’s also currently available on iTunes.
