The core Wu-Tang member takes us on a wild ride.
Which are you bumping first?
The star-studded telethon just got a little bit bigger.
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.
Method Man should be dropping his new project The Meth Lab shortly (August 21st to be exact) but in order to hold fans over he's sharing "The Purple Tape," featuring legendary Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Inspectah Deck. By now everyone should be familiar with those three words: The Purple Tape. If you're not, it's quite simple: It refers to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... and its unique purple plastic packaging. So it's only convenient that Rae is present on the track, too. Listen to Meth's "The Purple Tape" for those monster Wu verses you've been thirsting for after the jump!
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge are set to drop their followup to the first Twelve Reasons to Die on July 10th and today marks a big day for the album as the duo share a massive track in "Resurreciton Morning." As if the song title wasn't enough, Ghostface recruits fellow Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon and R&B master Bilal for the track as well. The track is spooky and is catapulted forward by Younge's eerie piano-driven production. Check out "Resurrection Morning" after the jump and be on the lookout for the second installment of Twelve Reasons to Die dropping the 10th.
