Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J and UGK’s Pimp C collaborated extensively since the late 1990s. The Memphis, Tennessee-Port Arthur, Texas connection ran strong on singles like 2000’s “Sippin’ On Some Syrup,” 2001’s “Like A Pimp,” and 2007’s “International Player’s Anthem Remix,” the last of which was a song originally co-produced by J.
The connection has remained strong since Pimp C’s 2007 death from respiratory depression believed to be caused by a drug overdose.
Yesterday (August 11), Juicy J revealed that he is producing an album by the late UGK co-founder. The album is made up of unreleased material.

This will likely be Pimp C’s third posthumous album, following 2010’s The Naked Soul Of Sweet Jones and 2011’s Still Pimping, both released on Rap-A-Lot Records, where Pimp C and Bun B were (and are) both signed as solo artists. Neither of those two albums featured Juicy J’s involvement.
Later this month, Juicy J will release his first solo album on a major label, August 27’s Stay Trippy, which features Pimp C on “Smokin’ Rollin’.”
