Pimp C Funeral Attended By Rappers…And The FBI

February 6. 2007

Rapper Pimp C, Chad Butler, of the rap group UGK passed away recently at the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles. He was 33.

Toxicology reports now confirm he died from abusing the prescription drug codeine (cough syrup) and a bout with sleep apnea (subject stops breathing in their sleep). Pimp C is famous for the song “Sippin’ on some Syrup” which is about getting high on cough syrup.

Many blogs have wondered out loud why a certain mainstream rapper and former collaborator, who claimed to be his friend, was “noticeably absent” from the funeral.

Don Juan…and a not so discreet FBI agent snapping surveillance pics in the background. Well, at least people can’t see you taking pictures, then (not).

However, articles on many sites and in newspapers such as the Star Telegram posted photographic evidence that the FBI was doing under cover surveillance at the funeral. Clearly someone(s) under investigation.

At the time of his death, Pimp C was working with UGK on an album for Jive Records. By all accounts the album was not completed before his sudden passing.

Pimp C did a set of interviews a few months ago that left many on the internet laughing. He took several industry members to task via a string of high profile disses that left the internet roaring with laughter.

In one of the interviews three months ago, he said something that caught my attention, “The only stars are in the m******** sky.” Indeed. I said the same as well the year before in 2006 (well, sans the expletive – I own the web site theonlystarsareinthesky.com as it is the name of an unreleased 2006 documentary and song I wrote).

My condolences to his family.
