Pimp C "$WEET JONE$: Pimp C's Trill Life Story" Biography Release Date Announced

UDPATE: The biography of Pimp C has a release date.

Pimp C is the subject of a forthcoming biography written by former OZONE Magazine Publisher and editor-in-chief Julia Beverly.

Beverly interviewed 250 people for the book, which is being written under the guidance of Pimp C’s mother and manager, Weslyn “Mama Wes” Monroe.

“People often remember Pimp C for his flamboyant style and controversial interviews, but few understand just how complex and talented he was and how connected he was to the success of many other artists,” Beverly says in a press release. “Initially, I felt this was an important project because he hadn’t received a proper tribute. The more I researched, I realized his story is one that needs to be told, and I’m in the perfect position to tell it.”

Beverly interviewed Pimp C’s UGK partner Bun B for the book, as well as Snoop Dogg, Three 6 Mafia, 8Ball & MJG, the Geto Boys, Master P, David Banner, Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Ice-T, Goodie Mob, Lil Keke, Z-Ro, Trae, Webbie and Mannie Fresh, among others for the book.

In addition to telling the story of Pimp C, "the book explores Houston’s dynamic music culture, the pitfalls of the entertainment industry, the economics and racial disparity of the massive Texas Criminal Justice system, the realities of the pimp/prostitute subculture and human trafficking, the hazards of drug abuse and much more,” the press release says.

Pimp C died in West Hollywood in December 2007. In February 2008, the Houston Chronicle reported that “the combination of codeine and promethazine found in the rapper's system, coupled with the sleep disorder apnea, caused his death."

    Glad she did that. I also looked a few years ago for some information on him and did not find much. As much fucked up shit he's been through, he was a very intelligent man. I read the interviews and even found some unrelease material from him. As much as he done for the hip-hop community and helping other artist out independently; he at least deserves his life story told. He stays on my Google Music playlists
