David Banner and Big K.R.I.T. are assisted by an U.G.K. inspired hook over a deep and aggressive beat that draws comparisons to a movie score. There is power as well as pain in the music. “My Uzi” is the lead single from Banner’s album The God Box which will be dropping this summer. Personally, this is the Banner I’ve been wanting since the Crooked Lettaz days. He is right on time with it, his voice and his message is needed now more than perhaps ever. So salute the man who put Mississippi on his back and helped pave the way for the Hip Hop scene here. Click the link below to support……
U.G.K. – It’s Supposed To Bubble “It’s Dom Perignon it’s supposed to bubble”
Today’s videos are dedicated to Chad Butler known to the world as Pimp C, 1/2 of the Port Arthur, TX duo Underground Kingz. The Pimp passed away 7 years ago today in Los Angeles, CA. It would be impossible to find anyone in the industry who didn’t respect C. And I dare you to find me a southern rapper that he did not influence. Even those who caught the wrath of Pimp C (see Young Jeezy), knew what time it was. Mostly, Butler was about helping people come up. He wold often share his knowledge of the game with anyone who wanted to hear it. He spent more time building that destroying that for sure. He would work with unknown acts just as soon as he’d work with Jay-Z or Too $hort. He was also quick to speak his mind if you were out of pocket though. “Get mad at the Pimp” watch the interview below and get a history lesson from Pimp.

SPICE 1 – TRIGGA GOTS NO HEART
I got into a twittscussion the other day about the pitfalls of the movie Menace II Society. I’ve sat and chilled on it for a few days and I think I’m going to write something up on it. I feel pretty strongly about the views that were expressed, however, that doesn’t change the fact that the soundtrack was hot, son. From Spice 1’s “Trigga Gots No Heart”, DJ Quik’s House Of Pain diss, “Can’t F*** wit *****”, UGK, Brand Nubian, Guru & The Cutthroats, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, MC Eiht, BDP, and a slew of other artists. So here I’m doing my video of the day tribute to Menace II Society, which I will roast very shortly as well….enjoy…..The movie starred a gang of rappers MC Eiht, Too Short, Saafir (Caine’s cousin Harold), and Pooh-Man. However it’s the exclusion of one particular rapper that made the most noise, Tupac Shakur was originally slated to be in the movie as Sharif, however he was fired, which lead to an butt whooping and charges being filed against Pac. Anyway…here…..we….goooooooo

R.I.P. Pimp C
Off of Pimp C’s forthcoming album Still Pimpin’ which will be dropping on July 12th. Nice to see K.R.I.T. getting some shine with Pimp C, an obvious influence…..
