 PIMP C SOLO ALBUM “THE NAKED SOUL OF SWEET JONES”

SET TO DROP ON OCTOBER 5

Album features Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Drake and more.

 NY, New York – The Naked Soul Of Sweet Jones, the third solo album by the late Chad Butler, aka Pimp C, a founding member of the Texas legendary duo UGK, is set to drop on October 5, 2010 on Rap-A-Lot/Fontana. Pimp was working on this project in 2007, aiming at an early 2008 release. His sudden death in December 2007 left family, friends and the hip hop community completely disoriented. Almost three years since his death, The Naked Soul Of Sweet Jones will be unveiled. The album features cameo appearances by numerous artists including Bun B, Chamillionaire, E-40, Drake, Too Short, Webbie & Lil Boosie, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy and more.

 Pimp C, along with close friend Bun B, formed the rap group UGK (Underground Kingz) in the early 90’s. The group was destined to become one of the most influential outfits in the history of Southern rap. In 1992, UGK signed to New York based label Jive Records; under this deal, the group released five successful albums (Hard To Swallow, Super Tight, Ridin’ Dirty, Dirty Money and UGK 4 Life.)

 Pimp C was responsible for most of the production on all of the UGK projects. His strong passion for live music was felt from the early days of his music career; the use of live instruments  was one of the elements that always distinguished UGK’s unique sound .

His arrest in 2002 generated a wide emotional reaction within the hip hop community; in the mix of the “Free Pimp C” movement, which was highly promoted by fellow UGK member Bun B, Rap-A-Lot Records released the first solo album, Sweet James Jones Stories in 2005. In December of the same year, Pimp was released from prison. The second solo album Pimpalation was eventually released in July of 2006.

 The group was heavily at work on the next UGK album when Pimp C was found dead in a LA hotel room on December 4, 2007. Unfortunately, UGK 4 Life turned out to be the final album for the ground breaking Southern duo. The record was released by Jive Records in 2009. The single “Intl Players Anthem” featuring Outkast garnered the group a BET Award and  their first Grammy Nomination.
