Tonight: Pimp C Tribute on KPFT's "Damage Control"
Has it really been a year already? Indeed it has: On December 4, 2007, Port Arthur-born MC and producer Pimp C was found dead in his Hollywood hotel room; the Los Angeles County Coroner listed the cause as a combination of sleep apnea and accidental overdose of codeine-containing cough syrup. To say things haven't been the same without him would be a massive understatement.
Tonight on KPFT's "Damage Control" (90.1 FM, 12-3 a.m.), Pimp's former UGK partner Bun B and HoustonSoReal/AustinSurreal blogman Matt Sonzala will join host DJ Chill for a three-hour tribute to the late Southern rap icon. Stream the show at kpft.org. - Chris Gray
