PORT ARTHUR, Texas — He lived his life too “trill,” he was gone too soon. UGK’s Chad “Pimp C” Butler was given a royal going-home service on Thursday (December 13) in his hometown. He passed away earlier this month at age 33.
Several hundred fans began lining up as early as 7:30 a.m. to ensure admittance to Pimp’s funeral here at the Robert A. “Bob” Bowers Civic Center. Thousands were expected. Not only was Pimp a hip-hop legend whose music many of them have bumped for the past 15 years, he was their legend. C and his partner, Bun B, tirelessly repped their hometown throughout their career. Bun personally escorted Pimp’s son, “Lil Chad,” into the funeral.
