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.

Rapper LE$ is sharing the visuals for "UGK'z," a tribute to the extraordinary legacy of acclaimed hip hop duo UGK. And it's only fitting that he's joined by one half of that duo, Uncle Bun. Additionally, Curren$y stops by to lay down a verse. The track is said to be on LE$' forthcoming Steak X Shrimp 2 project, dropping this Sunday (November 22nd). In the meantime, check out the visuals for "UGK'z" after the jump.
So apparently, A$AP Rocky, who was riding around London had an object hurrled at his car. This prompted Rocky and crew to follow the alleged assailant into a bagel shop and confront him. Rocky, who is from Harlem, put on his best Harlem tough guy pose and went at the guy, giving him a ear full, and threatened to put hands on him. Rocky cooled off and walked away. However, the man (or men?) in the bagel shop had some choice words for Rocky as well. The title of the video, by the way, is "ASAP Rocky Running Gums in London" so clearly the people in that bagel shop weren't exactly "cool" with the A$AP Mob all-star. Check out the full video of the confrontation after the jump.
