A unique memorial to Pimp C, who died in December 2007, UGK 4 LIFE doesn't smother the duo's swan song in posthumous sentiment. (There's a foreboding proclamation from Pimp C during the intro that he and Bun B are "back from the dead.") But from there, his surviving partner and production team let the music--and familiar themes of sex and other forms of indulgent relaxation--take center stage. Apart from inviting a revaluation of the late rapper's underrated soulfulness, 4 LIFE serves as a testament to UGK's trademark smoothness, which, on their final collaboration, evokes what the Ohio Players might sound like if they were updated for the hip-hop generation.
Artist Overview
UGK (aka Underground Kingz) are Houston-based MCs Bun B and Pimp C. Along with the Geto Boys, the duo are considered key figures in the rise of Houston rap in the late 1980s. Although their lyrics cover fairly typical gangsta rap terrain, the UGK's association with the Screwed Up Click put them at the fore of the then obscure Chopped & Screwed movement. The duo has also guested on classic tracks like Jay-Z's "Big Pimpin'" and Three 6 Mafia's iconic "Sippin on Some Sizzurp." Bun B and Pimp C have both released successful solo albums in the new millennium. Sadly, Pimp C was found dead in a Hollywood room in late 2007.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- 'Da Game Been Good to Me' reminds us what rap lost with Pimp C's death: one of its most musical and melodic MCs, with a thick drawl and a knack for wildly elongating words..."
Spin (p.98) - "UGK 4 LIFE is a fitting capper to this Texas duo's storied career -- nothing groundbreaking, just funky, rough-hewn, celebratory tracks."
Blender (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The languid beats are hazy with heat-distortion organs...the spirit is carefree....Pimp excelled at scowling, bawdy boasts, and he creates his own eulogy here..."
Pitchfork (Website) - "Bun-B's performance is a masterwork of nuance here, sounding doubled even when it's obvious he's not..."
