ON THIS DAY: CHINARA BUTLER & RICE UNIVERSITY – PIMP C: A TRILL LEGACY

Where were you when you heard your very first UGK record?  Just some of the dialogue exchanged among the attendees present as Dr. Pinn & Chinara Butler (Widow of Legendary Southern Pioneer Chad “Pimp C.” Butler) prepared for the nights’ event & panelists. When surfaced that there would be a Pimp C Collection at the Woodson Research Center, Hip Hop began to celebrate its excitement thru social media, hence the notable contributions of UGK for not only representation throughout the south, but in regards to the iconic moments within rap music in its entirety. Having had the opportunity to interview Mr. Boomtown back in 2011, I remember learning more about the Port Arthur team and those candid moments that you just can’t simply google. Last night’s event is considerably another one of those, “you had to be there.”

 

I was able to gain insight throughout the evening and looked forward to having an opportunity to visit the collection in Rice’s Fondren Library which includes lyrics handwritten, contracts, artwork from fans and more! Let’s recall from L. To R. the panelist who chimed in on the key moments that shaped their personal relationship with Pimp C

E.S.G., DJ Michael Watts, Mr. Lee, Lil Keke, David Banner, Chinara Butler, Bun B with moderation by Madd Hatta 

Bun B shares how fellow pioneer & legendary DJ Screw, had first test press of “Tell Me Something Good,” and framed it like a plaque.

He spoke on their record “Pocket Full of Stones” which was featured on the, Menace II Society soundtrack, and went on to mention how the ending we saw was actually the alternate version.  Originally, it was “O-Dog” who was supposed to meet his unfortunate fate in the ending!  What a classic movie and great film none the less to be apart of.

A member within the audience asked Bun b a question that he summarizes as one he often receives regarding conspiracies surrounding Pimp C’s death, and clarified it wasn’t due to an overdose of lean.  He did address as well as Chinara, that his existing health conditions contributed to what ultimately led to his passing.

A mini documentary was shown during the ceremony which highlighted how UGK influenced the new generation with featured speakers like Asap Rocky and Scotty ATL.

 

 

David Banner elaborated more that although his death was a result of health factors, the humble conscious rapper from Port Arthur, did knowingly receive death threats due to his new social status, and the leader he had become within the community.

Banner first interacted with Pimp C by way of mail when he wrote to the rapper while incarcerated. He recalled sending pictures of new drum machines which undoubtedly led to him introducing & teaching P C how to use production equipment.

Mad Hatta, E.S.G., Mr. Lee spoke of respect, music & more, while Lil Keke went on record to say he received confidence to pursue music from U.G.K.  Michael Watts said his experience came mostly thru the radio interaction when “Pimp” would call up to the 97.9 station.

It’s thru the continuous efforts and occasions such as these that Chinara vowed in sustaining the voice of Pimp C.  The event carried over to a separate location where Deleon sponsored an evening to remember and J Prince & Chinara would share their first photo together since her becoming a widow.

Among many others in attendance were Hip Hop Recording Artist & Houston Veteran Killa Kyleon and  Billboard Charting Artist Snooti Wild.
