It’s been over two and a half years since the death of the late rapper, but new music from Chad “Pimp C” Butler will soon be available to his fans.
With UGK partner & rhyme Bun B’s Trill O.G. slated for an August 3rd release date, it’s only right for the Pimp’s album to follow soon after. Preliminary artwork for The Naked Soul of Sweet James Jones leaked online over a year ago, leaving people to speculate and anticipate the album’s release. Now the speculation is over as the album is currently set for release on September 21, 2010. The record will be Pimp C’s third and probably final solo release under famed Southern label Rap-A-Lot Records, which will be distributed through their new venture with Fontana/Universal Records.
While this may be a posthumous album from Pimp C, longtime friend and UGK partner Bun B assured their many supporters that the album will be of quality.
“We had enough vocals [for the album], but it wasn’t just about taking whatever vocals I had available,” Bun B said in an interview with XXL Magazine last year. “It was about constructing songs. It wasn’t about just throwing all the Pimp C I had out there. I had to really try to make an album.”
