Pimp C’s Mother Responds To Tragedy

Weslyn “Mama Wes” Monroe, the mother of Pimp C, opened up to KFDM News in Port Arthur, TX on Tuesday (December 4) about her sons death. “Pray for his family,” Monroe told the station. “He has three gorgeous children. They’ll need all the support they can get. I will, too.” Monroe explained that Pimp was in Los Angeles working with Memphis based group Three 6 Mafia and taking business meetings at the time of his death. She stressed that the proud MC remained in the small city, even after his fame and prosperity would have allowed him to relocate. “He loved P.A.,” she noted. “And now, you know, we’re all gonna need the support of P.A.” Pimp’s mom also spoke on how her son’s passing will affect the entertainment industry, to which he dedicated his life. “It’s going to be a terrible loss to the industry,” she said. “He was very intense when it came to his music. If it wasn’t absolutely perfect, he wouldn’t deal with it. He was a musical genius, and you know, geniuses are always a little strange.”

    While Mama Wes does seem like an incredibly strong woman, i’m sure this is going to be tremendously difficult for her. My familie’s prayers down here in San Antonio are with Pimp’s. And a special prayer for Bun B who I can only imagine feels like he has a hole where his heart his. What with everything he did while Chad was locked up and since his release and then to lose him now! Can y’all imagine?
    And also to Mac Sleepy- sorry about the loss of your cousin. I lost a close friend that was like a brother to me this month 5 years ago and this is reminding me of him as well. Find the love. Squash the hate. The pain of my brother is my own. Peace.

I hear everyday from people how they pray for me and everyone else in the military. But I say, Thank you. So when yall are praying for us I’m praying for yall and hope everyone is ok back in the U.S.. So my prays go out to Pimp C family & Bun B. I remember when the album Underground Kingz came out cause when I was on deployment my wife was pregnant and I asked her go buy me the album and send it to me. I loved UGKs music. Missing you already.

      Did you even hear how he died? They never said thats how he died so don’t start any bullshit rumors. Let the man rest in peace. Like Katt Williams said. taking 13 aspirins could mean ya last headache. So despite how that man lived, you have no right to judge him. Thats up to God and thats where he is now. No one ever said he died sipping syrup so please read the Got Damn facts and again, let the man rest in peace!!!

  • Xtaci03

    When I got to work yesterday and they told me The Pimp had died I didn’t believe it. But more people start talking about that shit and I was like DAMN!It really broke my heart to hear that.When I looked it up on the internet and found it to be true I was hurt even worse.My prayers go out to his family and his long time friend Bun B. Keep your heads up. Repping the Dirty South straight from Mississippi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I got a feelings dat, maybe Russell Simmons got sum’n to do wit Pimp C’s death.
    Maybe because, Pimp ones dissed him and dis nigga Russell Simmons is on sum yoga shit.
    The first thing i thought was dat, Indian people got a lot to do with yoga.
    Indian call saints and all dat kinda voodoo shit. So i htink Russell Simmons probably hired sum Indians to voodoo Pimp C
    I mean, c’mon y’all. If it wasn’t no Natural Cause then whut da fuck is Pimp C gonna die of??????. I want y’all to think about this, cus i think it’s really important.
    I think they voodoo’d Pimp C spititual, cus dat’s the only way that the autopsy and toxicology wouldn’t find any causes of Pimp C’s death. The man wasn’t sick or nuthin’ like dat. No Codeine or sum other drugs were found in his body. It’s really weird, mayne.

    Very first off, get recommendations from each person you can honestly trust. Any friend, family, or acquaintance you hold any value in must be asked in regards to recommendations for attorneys dealing with these cases. You will also want to check on line for all the experts dealing with this legal region that are obtainable. The effort to discover at least 4 law firms and/or representatives ought to really be sought out prior to really meeting anyone. Be sure to keep your options open.

    I hope this is the correct place to leave a message for Ms. Monroe, Chad’s mother. Please pass this on to her or contact me and let me know you cannot. Thank you.

    I came to this in such a round about way. I hope this message gets to you. I originally was trying to find a way to contact UGK. I was so saddened to find that you lost your son. You have my deepest sympathy and now I know you understand where I am.

    My son, Patrick Holland, was murdered on Sept. 22, 2012. Stabbed fatally by his girlfriend. In addition to the homicide investigation (I must add that myself, family and friends did most of the investigation as it was not high profile enough), suing the girlfriend in civil court as she stole everything, jewelry, furniture, tvs, etc., a dog fight over his estate trying to protect it for my grandchildren and a grandparents visitation suit (as when i would not agree to a $50,000 cash payout to the ex, not for the children, she cut me off from them and I have had them every weekend of their lives) I was trying to contact UGK to get their permission to use a verse from their record on the back of the T shirts we will be selling at a benefit his friends are holding to try to help me raise the $25,000 I need for attorney fees and to bury his ashes. One of my son’s favorite songs was (Sorry, I don’t know the actual name of it) the one about one day you’re here and the next you’re gone. I am sure you will know which one it is.

    I am sure you can empathize with how low I am at this point. But I am my son’s only voice and I know he would expect me to stand up and fight for him and his children.
    I can only hope that you did not have to deal with this avalanche of terrible things on top of your sons death.

    If you do not object we will use that on the back of the TShirt. On the front is a picture of him on his motorcycle and on the back his last name, year of birth and death and that saying.

    I am crying as I write this. For both of us and all the children left behind. If you have any words of guidance on how to walk through this journey, I would appreciate them. If you would like to contact me please do so otherwise I will not bother you again. I am on fb, Carol Holland, in a pink and white sundress (a much younger me, my son hijacked my fb page and put on his favorite pic) or carolholland55@hotmail.com or fb – search line – Patrick Holland Benefit.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Sincerely, Carol Holland
