UGK Delivers Farewell Album

It was announced yesterday (Jan. 28) that the final studio album from legendary Southern rap duo UGK will be hitting shelves later this year.

Roughly a year and a half after the death of group member Pimp C, the “Underground Kingz” sixth disc, UGK 4 Life, will be released in spring of ’09 on Jive.

Partner-in-rhyme Bun B commented on the reasoning behind dropping the CD in Pimp’s absence. “UGK 4 Life is the final studio album from my late great brother Chad Butler AKA Pimp C and myself,” he said in a press release. “It is my sincere hope that it’s a fitting bookend to the legacy of UGK and the life and times of Pimp C.”

“It is an album for the people, for the supporters and the detractors” he added.

UGK 4 Life follows up their award wining 2007 double album Underground Kingz. The album won two BET awards for Best Group and Best Video for “International Players Anthem” featuring OutKast, while also earning a Grammy nod for Best Rap Performance By A Duo or Group. – Jonny Alvarez
