Earlier today, Complex and Mass Appeal presented Long Live The Pimp, a documentary that breaks down the story of how Chad Butler aka Pimp C became an underground king. Together, with Bun B in UGK, the duo not only forged ahead as Southern rap pioneers but vanguards of lyricism, production and flamboyance. Few could deliver a sentence that was as smooth and raw as Pimp C.

Long Live The Pimp breaks down Pimp’s incarceration in 2002 after a probation violation stemming from a falsified incident in Houston’s Sharpstown Mall. The attempts to unify the South and mend fences between T.I., Lil’ Flip, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, Z-Ro & Slim Thug. In this documentary, Chinara Butler​, Mike Mo, Rico Wade, N.O. Joe, DJ Paul, Nas, Mike “5000” Watts, and countless others close to Pimp C reflect on his legacy and what he meant to the South and hip-hop at large.
