: MediaTakeOut.com is sad to report that rapper Pimp C, half of the hit group UGK, was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel room.
L.A. County Fire responded to a 911 call at the Mondrian Hotel, located on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, CA. They arrived to his sixth floor hotel room to find Pimp C dead in bed. Right now sources are telling MediaTakeOut.com that authorities do not suspect any foul play in the incident.
UPDATE - Sources in The Los Angeles Police Department tell MediaTakeOut.com that they suspect Pimp C may have died of a drug overdose.
HELL NO!!! I hope that this is a rumor. What happened? MTO...you post bulls*th about everyone else and can't get us the goods on PimpC...whats the deal?
If this is true...God bless his family. Many prayers
DAMN THIS IS CRAZY MAYBE ITS A SIGN PEOPL!
WE R DROPPIN LEFT AND RIGHT!
GOD BLESS HIS SOUL AND HAVE MERCY ON US ALL
RIP PIMP C DONDA WEST FRESH SISTER SEAN TAYLOR
AND EVERYONE ELSE THATS GONE TO A BETTER PLACE.
SO WE LIKE TO THINK!
When I saw the name Pimp C, I thought "who the hell is this, that na,e sound familiar???" I always get the guys from UGK and Three 6 Mafia confused. LOL This is too bad. Prayers to the family of Pimp C. Was he shot, stabbed, natural causes, ODed, what happened?
It was probably COCAINE, I have their last album its a double disc set with a DVD in it, anyway there is a song on their called cocaine & since the report isn't talking about any bloodshed (gun/knife attack)and he is fairly young, I'm gonna take a guess and go with the song on their own album.
I can't believe this sh*t!!!! Pimp C was da man...I just hope it didn't have anything to do with drugs. It's a shame how all these people dying. I know Bun B is having a tough time with this ....RIP Pimp C
MAN I THROUGH SH*T OFF MY DESK WHEN I READ THIS! Man I ain't neva met him personally but it feels like I lost a family member reading this! THIS SH*T HAS GOT TO STOP MAN. THESE YOUNGSTERS DON'T HAVE RESPECT FOR ANYONE ANYMORE!!

REST IN PEACE PIMP C! A GREAT ARTIST, TAKEN FROM US SO SOON! BLESS HIS FAMILY THRU THIS HARD TIME
Nikster fuk you, My opinion is MY OPINION, you cant tell me nothin til the toxicology/autopsy report comes back. You probably never even BOUGHT (no bootleg or downloads) a UGK album. Go listen to the f-ing song.
RIP PIMP C.....DAMN MAN!!!! man we keep fukking losing our Houston artists.....GOD BLESS THE FAMILY.
REST IN PEACE MY N!GGA; WE GON CONTINUE TO HOLD IT DOWN FOR UGK FOR LIFE. WE LOVE YOU

OMG!!! This is sad!!! I really loved this dude him and bun b.. I remember when they first came on the scene with "tell me somethin good" and "pocket full of stones" Im literally cryin...its a sad day in Houston...
I WISH THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE TIMES MTO WAS LYING, BUT UNFORTUNELY ITS TRUE. I REMEMBER UGK FROM WHEN I WAS YOUNG. THEY BEEN IN THE GAME A LONG TIME AND PIMP C WAS JUST GETTING HIS LIFE BACK TOGETHER. RIP CHAD BUTLER (PIMP C)
I'm so sick of this type of shyt. I don't even get mad at white people doing racist shyt anymore. What bother me even more is the black on black crime. We can expect white people to hate us,but your own people killing u over bs.
Dang not my first life changing rap song, pocket full of stones...
RIP PIMP C I WILL NEVER FORGET THE WAY THAT YOUR MUSIC TOUCHED ME AND YES YOUR MUSIC WILL LIVE ON...
But yea it was a drug overdose!!!

BLACK PEOPLE PLEASE DO NOT GET USE TO THIS. THIS IS ANOTHER BROTHER WHO DIED TO YOUNG FOR WHATEVER REASON. PLEASE HATE THAT THIS KEEPS HAPPENING TO US. WE LEAVING OUR SISTERS IN TOO MANY WAYS. WHO'S GONNA HOLD IT DONE FOR THEM IF WE KEEP LEAVING THEM... THE WHITE MAN???? SELF EVALUATE.
Alligator Shoes and The Belts to Match..

Today is a sad day for all UGK Fans everywhere!!!
Mannn i still cant believe this. Pimp C is another H-Town legend GONE. Its time to get yo shyt together and live right... RIP Pimp!!! And to HUEmanbro where did you read that it was black on black crime they havent even said the cause of his death stop being so negative you sound just as ignorant as the "white" people that throw racist shyt our way! Stop all the negativity someone just lost their father/husband/best friend/brother/uncle/son lets show some kind of respect for this man and his life!!! Much love Houston!!!!
WOW it is funny people in here preaching these BLACK ON BLACK CRIME speeches when the ARTICLE clearly says no foul play was suspected. People quick to write a speech but slow to read. Damn now that is funny to me.

For those of you who said ...." and I care because ", just know that you sound stupid because if you didn't care you would not have even clicked on the post.. And please stop commenting on how late MTO is, this happened this morning..not last week. And everyone encluding TMZ just started reporting this incident less than 2 hours ago. Anyways I heard that it was overdose but I find that hard to believe.I just don't believe it..I have been a fan of UGK for years.... My Condolences
R.I.P TO MY HOME BOY PIMPC U WILL ALWAYS BE HERE ON EARTH IN SPIRIT AND IN ARE HEARTS WITH THE LOVE OF YOUR MUSIC AND FOR ALL OF THE ONES WHO HATE DON'T DO THAT TO LONG YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN ITS YOUR TIME
Rumor has it that he sniffed off a chick's chest after a concert in L.A. He even said something about using in the last line of his verse
Uh the bitch, been good to me
Been bad to my homies, keep it cool with me
I played it by the rules, and the regulations
I use to switch cars with the Mexican, at the gas station
Mine had money in it, his had the work
After the deal was done, I make my girl pussy squirt
Cause after the deal, we would all celebrate
Happy cause it wasn't no jacking, and the product was straight
I never came, with the funny business
That's why we steady playing in Jags, and Benzes
Some niggaz, let the city eat em up
I was just coming up, whipping my pyrex steady beating it up
I'm a shark with the fork, microwave or pot
I'ma hit it with the Sprite, and make that butter lock
Everything was cool, I was ice cold
Till I let that bitch, get up in my nose
Kasey30--- wow ok dats really dont mean nuthin cuz people sing bout different stuff all da tyme dont mean dey usin it or dey do it................juss stop commenting this story unless u got somthin to do with your condolences
Are your really serious right now? Someone is dead and ignorant people can't go one post without saying first, second. It's stupid number one and number two obviously some people don't have shit else to do but sit and wait for a post to be the first to comment. Sad just sad
Smoke somethin B!tch!!!
I loved me some pimp c!
Now I understand it must be hard bein 16 and not know where and who really started this Hip Hop world we all know and love...
One lesson to learn respect the dead!! Ya Dig!
To those that don't know I would advise you to goggle or do a lime wire search and just listen you will see why everyone is so messed up over this...
My UGK story...
Back in the 90's as a young girl sheltered from the streets I got me a hood boyfriend who would come pick me up in his car and play the dopest music I had ever heard (me n music was swv/saltnpeppa) when I heard pocket full of stones I anit neva felt like that in all my life...I was a fan immediately, and fiend to hear it everyday and I didn't stop until I knew all the words. A true fan in deed and I won't eva stop bein that.
I haven't talked to that old boyfriend in forever but as soon as I got this news I had to call him and cry wit him, its crazy how much I love music.
I actually believe that day I feel in love wit hip hop!
BUN B Be easy I know its hard but you are in my prayers...
All I can say is I hope this makes those that play with they nose WAKE UP AND THINK....33 I'm 32......WAKEUP MY PEOPLE!
Like many around the Houston area, I too have personally met Pimp C. Also, like many that have met him, I too left our meeting feeling very impressed and I knew I would be a fan for life. I don't know why he left us so early, but I don't believe in accidents and coincidences. I know Pimp C will never be forgotten, especially not by me. May God strengthen and give peace to all who loved and cared for Pimp C.
I'm_a_flirt I've been saying that since day one....all the folks 15 and under think about being THE FIRST POSTER....it's sad to see that a headliner of someone losing their life and to reply to it they put...UMM...FIRST!!! The shyt is hella stoopid and only teenyboppers do that...what they don't know is they look oh so ignorant as hell.
Anywhooz I don't know much about Pimp C but RIP my brotha.
DAMN MY MAN PIMP C IS GONE WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THE CONCERT COMING UP IN MD. NOW WHATS GONNA HAPPEN. ALL MY PRAYERS GO OUT HIS ALL HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS. PIMP C R.I.P YOU WLL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!
RIP PIMP C!!! and whats more fukked up is dat contrary to these reports sayin theres no foul play, there was. my homeboy stay in houston and he said pimp was shot. pimp had been talking down lately on people, and i think this may have been a result of it. this is why people need to be careful of what they do and say specially in da streets, because people is hatas and watchin yo moves. and u need to also watch out too because the last things u say and do could be da last mark u make. look at rick james, that nuggas last words ery1 rememberd was 'im rick james bitch' but to sum it up, keep yo mouth closed, yo ears and open and focus on the shit around you and dont get caught slippin.

You and yo homeboy don't know what the fukk yall talking about. I live in Houston and got people all over the rap game out here. That's a muthafukkin lie. That man didn't get shot. And he was in L.A. this weekend anyway, so unless yo homeboy was with the entourage or anybody in the crew, he don't know what the fukk he talking about.
I knew it..... I knew that there would not be any foul play when it came to this... This is like so many other houston rappers that have passed from an od... It is sad.
That was a bad way to go.
Much love and respect to the family of Chad...
KEEP YO HEAD UP BUN.... EVERYTHANG GONE BE ALRIGHT....
Now yall know as soon as "I got a pocket full of stones" came on and started up, everybody was CRUNK as hell to start off that 1st verse!!!
"I got a 64' Chevy in my yard
white drop top pearl paint job is hard"
-Tell Me Something Good
-One Day You Here and The Next Day You Gone
-Knocking Doors Down
-Chunk up the Deuce (not his song but UGK was a feature)
and other classics. I can't even think straight to list em right now. Man, UGK will never be the same, but I got a feeling my boy Bun B is gon' be better than ever from here on out.....watch and believe. Bun B for president.

It probably was an overdose. We all know he talked so reckless now we know why.......because of the drugs

RIP Pimp C
get cute4life for that ignorant comment and the one's hollering FIRST! Who cares if u were 1st! Who ever cares who's first that the dumbest stuff to me, especially the one's who aren't first looking dumb!
I am from Houston and the H is in mourn once again over the lost of another mogul in the rap industry. My heart goes to his family and friends and Bun B. Im sure he is handling this really hard. Its UGK for life! I always enjoyed he and Buns music and loved da Pimps attitude towards things. He spoke his honest mind no matter of the response. They finally freed the Pimp, now we have to bury him. Rest in Peace!
Damn I hope it's not from that s**t them South cats is always drinking such as Lil'Gayzee that cough medicine concoction nonsense.. Either or R.I.P. duke!" you and other man killed it on Big Pimpin' w/Jay
My Prayers go out to Pimp C's family, I'm from Houston & I allways see Bun B & I know how close they were, so I know he's so hurt about this. I just hate that our Houston rappers are dieing way too soon. "RIP Pimp C" He may have talked a lot of Shi** but he was a grat rapper with lyrics that made a lot of sense. He will be missed here in Houston.
MAAAAAN!!! If you between the ages of 27-37 you should know the impact Pimp C and Spice 1 had on music during that time.
"And then when I got on my knees that night to pray
I asked God why he let these killas live and take my homeboy's son away
Man if you got kids show em you love em cuz God jus might call em home
Cuz one day you here but baby the next day you gone".....MAAAAAAAN its a sad day for hip hop..
This is so sad............. I mean it is fact that WE ALL GOTTA GO but here of late, Ms. West, Sean Taylor now Pimp C. .........It just keeps you on your toes.... Man, this is a WAKE UP CALL for everyone....My condolonces go out to Chads' family, friends and fans..........RIP....................
On some real $hit, this just goes to show that you need to live every day of your life to the fullest and make the most out of it that you can, cuz we didn't come here to live forever!
Like Pimp said "One day you're here and then you're gone"!
RIP Pimp C!
dang this is hella sad and out here in the oakland bay area spice 1 got shot twice last night afro american males need to wake up hella bad perrty soon none will be left put god first pls and pray for spice......oakland & houston is at a stand still...
Ok I am embrassed b/c I had to ask my 15 year old who the heck pimp c is, now I recall...this is really sad. People die everyday, young and old, rich and poor, unknown and famous so it's nothing new but it's really sad when people attempt suidcide everyday by using coke, and x and thinking it's ok. Maybe this is not the reason that he dead but if it is what a total waste! I dumped my boyfriend who is a SCHOOL TEACHER because he was hooked on coke and x and weed! It's a painful experience to watch someone you love using and killing themselves slowly in this way, especially when he had so much going for himself. People find other ways to deal with life, it's hard but hardcore drugs like coke and x are not the answer!
I DON'T WANT TO SEEM LIKE I'M BEING INSENSITIVE, BUT IF IT WAS A DRUG OVERDOSE, MAYBE THIS WILL TEACH KIDS THAT IT'S NOT COOL TO POP PILLS AND BE HIGH OFF WEED AND DRUNK OFF GOOSE AND PATRON ALL AT ONCE, TRYING TO BE LIKE LIL WAYNE AND WHAT NOT. IT'S REALLY NOT THAT SERIOUS.
PEOPLE ARE DYING LEFT AND RIGHT AND MY MOM JUST LOST 4 OF HER HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS, WHO DIED IN THEIR SLEEP. NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON OR WHY THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO PEOPLE AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE. I DON'T KNOW MANY PEOPLE WHO LIVE PAST 45 ANYMORE AND IT'S REALLY SAD. DRUGS ARE NOT COOL, EVEN IF THAT'S WASN'T THE CAUSE OF HIS DEATH. DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE HYPE OF THIS BULLSH!T THAT THESE ARTIST RAP ABOUT, DRUGS CAN KILL YOUR @SS AND WILL, IF DONE EXCESSIVELY.
R.I.P PIMP C, YOU WERE A TALENTED BROTHER AND YOU'LL BE MISSED.
i am from the south (born in 'bama--raised in nc) and i have been listening to 'da kingz for what feels like foreva. every since hs i know. this is sad!!!
and for everybody up here citing "big pimpin" they was out waaay before that. that help put them on the mainstream map--but for a true rap head you would've heard them way before.
rip pimp c. dayum this ruined my DAY!!
Man this mad my heart drop into my stomach. Pimp C is one of the realest niggas ever. Man I aint form H-town or PA but I feel like one right now. I been in H-town for 5 years yall and man you fall in love with it. Carro's aint going to be the same H-town is not going to be the same. Ugk was the shit. When he got out last year no lie H-town was sick. Living back in the Chi if you never heard of UGK, GHETTO BOYS you was lame and real talk when I moved to the H you can feel the love they have for their rappers it is crazy. I am praying for the Family, BUN and H-town. It is really grey right now and again I from here but my heart has grown to love H-town.
"I got Bobby by the pound Whitney by the key DJ Screw by the Gallon the Game belong to me"

Anywhoo back to my recollections...
"A fiend gon be a fiend & u can't change no fiend I guess
So I let um smoke till they feel the brillo pad in they chest
Now they won't leave me alone cause dey know
I got a whole POCKET FULL OF STONES"
RIP TO A LEGEND...
I live in MO, but hale from H-Town and I can not get anyone to feel me on the hurt I feel right now in Kansas City, MO. It is not like I knew him personally, but when you feel someone's music as deep as I felt his, you feel like you know them personally because you feel what they saying. This has absolutely ruined my damn day. It is going to take a minute to get over the fact I will never hear any new music from this cat again. I always looked forward to UGK new CDs. What now?
Russ wasn't playing.. He didn't like that ole dick in da booty comment.
You are a piece of shit that have no respect for human life. This is not the time to be making stupid ass comments.
RIP PIMP C PA & UGK 4 LIFE!!!
That hotel is a well known place for Pimps, Hoes, Queers and a whole lotta other shizz in LA. I sure as hell would never sleep there!
Since when does a 30-year old man die of natural causes?
In LA, that usually menas AIDS.
This brotha must have been up to somethin' that all of the rest of us didn't know about...
As a long time H-town resident and UGK fan, I was shocked and saddened to hear this news on 97.9 today. RIP to Pimp C and my deepest condolences to his family, Bun B and his friends. It's a sad day in the rap world but it is good to hear all of the artists calling in to 97.9 to pay their respects to a true southern rap pioneer who always spoke his mind, no matter the consequences. RIP to the Pimp, you and your family are in my prayers
I called the hotel and they said that the Police got the video tape of him walking in with a whole bunch of other people at 5 AM.
Sounds like they all had a big party in their room last night.
If it wasn't AIDS, then it wuz probably coke....
The front desk clerk transferred me to the hotels spokesperson. And she read a statement saying family called for him and when security went to the room they went in and found him expired. She also stated that we (fans, family, press and so) can contact the LA police department for futher information.
I was googling what I could about Pimp C and got TMZ. They now say the coroner is reporting, natural causes. No drugs found in the room. He was fully clothed. Those CHIGGAS over there are talking so bad about him. I left a nasty note and got out. I hate Chiggas. Lord I know it is wrong but this is too much after Sean Taylor. That could be my child or brother they are making morbind jokes about. I Haaaaatttteee those lice bearing Chiggas.
First respect and mad love to PIMP C! Now to get to MTO....don't be up there reporting no bull from the LAPD saying that it may have been a drug overdose....step ya game and get ya facts right....NO DRUGS OR PARAPHENALIA was found in his room at all...DONT THROW STONES AT PIMP C without knowing the facts...I should expect this from yall tho...I CHECKED OUT TMZ AND THEY HAVE ALREADY STATED THAT IT SEEMS AS IF HE DIED OF NATURAL CAUSES....IF YALL KNEW FOR REAL PIMP C WASNT MESSING WITH NO DRUGS AND WASNT NO SYRUP SIPPER NO MORE...SO DONT DISGRACE HIS LEGACY WITH THAT....TRUE UGK FAN HERE...SINCE THE BEGINNING...SO ONCE AGAIN REST IN PEACE PIMP C!! TRILL NEVER DIE!!
I WORK AT A HOTEL AND I MET HIM LAST YEAR AND GOT A PIC WITH HIM. HE HAD A CROWD OF NIGGA AROUND HIM. BUT HE HAD A CROWD OF NIGGAS AROUND HIM CUZ HIS GIRLS ASS WAS SO DAMN FAT NIGGAS DIDN'T CARE ABOUT STARRING. THEY JUST STARRED AT HER. IM MEAN HER ASS WAS FWAT. GOOD THING I HAD MY CAMERA WITH ME.

WHAT HAPPENDED TO THE GIRL THAT WAS WITH HIM? WHAT DID SHE WAKE UP AND TAKE A TAXI HOME. OR DID SHE WAKE UP AND KISS HIM GOODBYE. I WANT ANSWERS DAMNIT!!!!!
Pimp raised a lot of us off "Tell Me Something Good" and I know that what I'm feeling a million more are too. The Whole Dirty South is hurting right now man!! That nicca Pimp stood by Underground Kings name HARD!! I salute that man for keeping it 100, never backing down, and being a man to his family and friends!
I met that man bout 2 months ago, and that man hugged me like he knew me man, humble, just on a real level man!! For all that didn't know Pimp, yall missed out!!! Thats all I got say.... Everyone that loved Pimp pray for Bun and their families man! We cannot forget that Pimp's kids just got their dad back man, now he's gone forever, they can get a 15 minute call or see him on the weekend, they'll kill for that right now! I'll probably kill for it right now!! But we must remember (especially me) cause we get selfish when we lose something precious, IT WAS GOD WILL and we have to accept that. I know that is what Pimp would say. I love you man forever!! You will never be forgotten!!!!! As my nicca Pimp would say PUT SOME SOUTH IN YA MOUTH BITCH!!! CHUURCH!!! No Doubt!! One Day You Here..The Next Day You Gone RIP Chad Butler!
If this is true, I am very sad. Pimp C was one of my favorite rappers. He had a #1 album a few months back.
To his fam, from mine, all the sympathy and heartfelt apologies. My prayers are with you. Take strength and comfort in the lord for he knows what is best.Bun B, I feel it with you, I will also miss his nusic.
I'm like Kush.....
I want answers too dammit!!! Cause when I met him 2 months ago, he had some light skinned half naked broad with him and Pimpin Ken's punk ass. I'm like you Kush, someone left him, he might could have been saved!!!!
I hate to say but he was a powder head mane and it seemed he got worse after he got out....Still cant believe tha news.I remember seeing him perform when i was 12 and it was their cd ridin dirty that got me hooked on hip hop.Like they song go "one day u here and tha next day u gone"RIP CHAD BUTLER
For all the "Unprofessional Doctors" Watch your mouth talking about Pimp C!! Hollywood, I dont doubt that you saw the nicca in the strip joint, respect him right now. Give us that. We as fans are here to pay our respects and our emotions are running high right now, please let your drug theories make it right now, cause I dont feel like posting negative comments back and forth, so be glad that some of us can hide behind a screen name cause if you were in the streets especially anywhere in the south, you would get done in. So fuccking what caused him to die, let God do his job like he will do all of us one day. Stay Up HATERS!
Mediatakeout...Ya'll should be ashamed of ya'll selfs.I honestly am sick of ya'll always trying to falsify information and making assumptions.For your info they believe he died of natural causes and not a DRUG OVERDOSE like ya'll claimed!!O yea I hope ya'll know TMZ AND ALLHIPHOP.COM Beat ya'll 2 tha story..hahah
REST IN PEACE TO PIMP C AND MY REGARDS GO TO HIS FAMILY. HE IS GONE BUT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. HE WILL LIVE ON THROUGH HIS MUSIC.
I LOVE MEDIATAKEOUT BECAUSE ANYTHING GOES, YOU CAN SAY EXCACTLY WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND, BUT LETS PLEASE TRY TO BE CONSIDERATE AND KEEP THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO OURSELVES. WE DO NOT NEED TO BE ON HERE MAKING OUR OWN COMMENTS ABOUT WHAT WE THINK HAPPENED. BECAUSE IT IS REALLY IRRELEVANT. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT HE'S GONE. THIS MAN HAS A WIFE, PARENTS AND CHILDREN WHO PROBABLY READ THIS BLOG SITE. IM NOT TRYING TO BE FLY, LETS JUST SHOW A LITTLE LOVE AND RESPECT.

You sound so ignorant. Who are you to speak on how someone should or should not react to the news of Pimp C's death?
People who cried or were very upset by this devastating news are obviously TRILL fans of Pimp C. If you can't relate, then thats you.
You cannot put a "depth" to the connection that fans have with one of their favorite artists.
R.I.P. Chad Butler!

MTO members is Racism In Reverse. Before you people attack and "gangup" on me here me out.Im a 21year old american woman of american english,dutch,irish and 1/4 african american ancestry. I have been a member of Mediatakeout for 5 months and Iam sorry people but all I read on this site is hatred and jokes of whitepeople I would like to be a part of community news but I feel I should remain on the main page because of all of the antiwhite rhetoric that is being vommitted by Stingray,Uncletom,Huebroman and their hater coherts which is nothing but racism in reverse in my opinion. I have a black boyfreind who attends the same college as me and we read mto every chance we get and he agrees that most of blackpeople dont say those types of things and feel that way towards whites. I even went as far to share these hatefilled posts with some of my classmates and instructors over the past 3 months in my african american studies and social science courses. I am glad that you 3 people dont speak for all your people god bless your soles in Jesuses name. Over the last week the hate rhetoric towards whites and me has been obvious. Iam not here to judge you Jesus Christ will be your judges you people need to see what other people think of your hatred outsde of your MediaTO community news world.and believe me brother its not pretty. I felt ashamed and embarrassed for the two white men that was scathingly attacked by Stingray yesterday it was unfair and hate filled relentless rhetoric. As a white woman i felt low and unworthy having my vagina being called a Military Inforcement Complex or whatever by Stingray and the mocking racist jokes towards whites by others. You Stingray, and HuemanBro constantly joke of whitewomen as dogs.Uncle Tom said I believe whites get drunk at parties and crawl around duh all people drink dummy. And for your infromation no Stingray I don't wash my dog in the kitchen sink. My boyfriend thinks you all are a bunch of white haters. I wanted to see if me and my boyfreind were right about our opinions of you hate bloggers so I got combined opinions from my classmates and social science teacher of you 3 and others ::;:
Uncle Tom........ black educated racist militant that hides it by humor but preaches hatred of whites and women.Tom you are funny and wrong you talk about government conspiracies to destroy black penis well my boyfreind proves your paranoia wrong every nite buddy. Hypocrite attacks people who challenge your ridiculous claims of aids conspiricies. More of a jokester and basically harmless when ignored. You claim to not trust white people. my boyfreind and some classmates says you are probally a rasta dredlock nerdy with glasses and sandals.
Stingray..........militant educated black racist quick to attack any white blogger with a question or comment. You act like your are guarding and policeing mto from whites having an opinion you attack white bloggers and attack and mock black bloggers for dating a white women or for agreeing with other white bloggers You are a hypocrite that preaches black unity but is quick to call others sellouts and tapdancers and we are the world dreamers. Last month I tried to get in on an interesting discussion I asked you a question Stingray and you immediately asked me grilled me what race I was you would not answer my question after I told you I was white and part black. Honeybeez called you a black racist and you mocked her and moved on to your next victim.My boyfreind and classmates think you probally are an afro beret leather coat wearing and black power tee shirt slogan wearing hatemonger.
HUEManbro.........militant black educated conspiracy space nut case. HUEmanbro you find joy in posting pictures of what you think is funny looking white people.you even posted a crippled white person for laughs But it is hurtful to me and quite juvenile. You constantly talk about black space oddities that only you seem to get. Hueman you have a short fuse for any black woman or whitewoman that challenges your conspiracy theories. You are a hatermongering mto blogger and The only time you have a sinceof humor is when you are posting nasty jokes and pictures about whites. you constantly talk about startrek matrix black in outerspace or whatever my boyfreind and classmates think you probally are a fubu sean jean earring and baseball cap wearing angry short guy.
Africanchild...........black racist,hatemonger blogger from another country. All you seem to want to do is show up to agrree with these other reverse racists. you are quick to ponce on others that you feel or silly or not with your ideas and you are a black hypocrite you call other women stupid who don't agree with your buddies. my boyfreind and classmates think you probally are a dishikie scarf african clothes wearing short african woman.
blacbutterpicanrican...........you girlfriend are just plain nasty mouth and a big jokester you got pissed yesterday when a white blogger told you could not spell.
Swirl-Girl..................we have not had a lot of time to judge your quotes like the other haters but you seem to have a sharp tongue and hatred for white bloggers that don't mean you any harm get over it sistergirl!!!
twofifty..............you girlfriend are to over emotional and you girlfriend throw too many temper tandrums my boyfriend thinks you are a black and chinese confused hating individual. calm down with you hatred girlfriend.
I know you all want to "gangup on me but that's fine I wanted you reverse racist to stop and see what outsiders think of your raceil ranting.maybe you can see yourselves better and find and let Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in your hearts before its to late for you hating soles. thank you I will not blog or I may just go back to the main thread after you read this. my heart hurts from your commentsthank you
flyjanegirl231- do you realize that alot of the opinions that you and your boyfriend and your classmates have are racist for example what you said about twofifty, how can you guess someones race just by what they say. you and you boyfriend and your classmate need to reevaluate you opinions because you are just as bad as the people that you are talking about.
MTO...get it straight. MSN.com says it appears he may have died of natural causes. It doesn't say anything about a "Drug Overdose".
He was only 33. So young. Makes you think that this world is coming to an end...Scary!
Everyone should stop making crazy speculations and just let the coroners report tell the truth. In the mean time we should just realize that in this life we should take nothing for granted. Just as fast as we entered this world we could also exit... when the time comes, there is no stopping it. Get your mind, heart, and life right because you never know when it's your turn...
Rest In Peace Pimp C
flyjanegirl: u and your boyfriened should visit t m z who in my opinion have some of the most ignorant and racists whites. read what the white bloggers wrote about this man who lost his life. once u do, preach to your white brothers and sisters about racism. write them 6 paragraphs on their ignorance. oh, and watch the look in your man's eyes as he reads...
When i heard about this yesterday i didn't post anything because it didn't seem real to me!!!!!
but then i found out that it was true and it is sad so young and well respected in the hip hop community!!!!
R.I.P. PIMP C
IT SEEMS LIKE JUST NOT TO LONG AGO EVERYONE WAS WALKING AROUND WITH THE FREE PIMP C T-SHIRTS (BUT HE IS FREE FROM A MANY OF THINGS NOW) (DRUGS (IF THAT IS THE REASON IN WHICH PASSED), HATERS AND ANYTHING NEGATIVE WITH IN HIS LIFE HE IS AT PEACE NOW)
don't waste your time being a hater if you never heard of him that is cool but to say all that you are saying is clearly a form of hating and it's not that serious regardless if you know him or he is some one that those of us who do no and love and respect the hip hop movement respect and love he is one of he is one of the underground kings and just pay respect because first and for most he is a person and no matter if i know you or not i am not going to post a comment being negative some one life has just ended and that's the only point that needs to be mad!!!!
my prayers to his family
and keep your head up Bun B!!!!
okay now i am mad 1st to hollywood_henderson know one walks in the hotel and get AIDS and drop dead as soon as they have finished having sex that's just not going to happen!!!!!
(i have too say and this is not directed to no one person but to so many of you that have posted lil dumb shit about a man life ending so soon that just goes to show how mature you are really it does)
now this is what i am mad about (badtwin)
okay now i am pissed the f#^k off 1st need i say hater yes because why the hell would you wish death upon this 2 young black men (50 and Jay) these 2 men are getting and no they are not talking about they are living it and as 50 say many men wish death upon me and i guess you are one of those people but it is just all the more crazy to see a person hate or such talent Jay has it all the way around and 50 can not be left out and so many other young black men but when you have your own fucking hating on you that's where the problem is (sick) we need to stop the hating every one running around here fighting each other but you better look at the big picture and get together and fight the people that don't care anything about you because pretty sooon the way they are offing us or should i say we are offing each other we are really going to have it bad in a few years and this is real talk (you better stand for something or you will fall for anything)
I think you people at MTO are wrong for speculating on Pimp C's death. His family has asked ya'll not to go there, and ya'll did anyway. Ya'll should be damned ashamed for disrespecting Pimp and his family! I guess in order to be a journalist, you have to not have a heart or a concious! Losers!
So far I have heard that he is getting an autopsy and he died from "natural causes". There is no evidence of foul play, suicide, or drug overdose. When he was found in the hotel room, he was on the bed lying down on his side on top of the comforter in his clothes.
HardCore did you notice that the negativity towards my boy Pimp is minor compared to the love he has gotten on the posting. So apparantly whatever you listen to is trash just like your comment. There is no such thing as "real hip hop" NEVER WAS. Its always and will forever be about getting a check....Name ONE of your so called real hip hop artist that put out an album for free. NAME ONE!!!!! ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY!!! YOU MUST HAVE JUST CAME TO AMERICA FROM YOUR POSTING....TEXAS BOYZ WILL ALWAYS RUN THIS JUST ASK BUSH...AND DONT FORGET WHATEVER YOU SMOKE ON CAME FROM HERE TO....WEAK TRICK!!!! UGK LIFE!!!!!!!!
Man dats fucked up PIMP C!?! anutha trill a$$ nigga gone 4ever he will be truely missed. GOD BLESS THE DEAD. The rap game is not gonna b da same without *SWEETJONES* I'm hurt c u at the crossroads 1 day. 4 get u NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im at a loss of words right now! As I sit here And read I see there was a lot UGK fans and I also see the haters. I can truly say that I knew Pimp C and he was a very good friend of mine. You would have to know Chad to know that just because his Stage/ Rap name was PIMP C that he wasnt a Real Pimp or that his music was just what it was -- Music. So stop Judging a book by its cover. I knew this man and he was Good Person. And @ HOLLYWOOD_HENDERSON stop Slandering this man's name and saying shit that IS NOT TRUE. That is how RUMORS get started. Don't NOBODY know how this man died and will not know til the autopsy and toxicology reports come Back. RIP PIMP C
Screw the haters..............let them die slow and horrible deaths since they are a waste of space.
R.I.P. Pimp C......hip-hop LOST big and the south lost big but you sir are a TRUE LEGEND and you will be missed by your fans, family and friends and never forgotten.
I hope the true cause of his death comes out..... this should be getting 1,000 comments easy.... not some Knowles family crap.....R.I.P. my dude.
