Though Houston’s Bun B has been carrying the UGK flag in the wake of his partner-in-rhyme’s passing, Pimp Cis back like he never left. The late emcee is resurrected on his upcoming third solo album The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones, due October 5, with the first track giving a taste of the Southern goodness to expect on the joint. On the Boi-1da produced “What Up,” Pimp reunites with Bun and brings along “honorary resident of UGK town” Drake for the ride, spitting greasy bars over a tinny synth beat with popcorn snare drums and a tasty melody.
And if this isn’t your speed, look out for other tracks on the album including “Dickies” featuring Bun B and Young Jeezy, “Midnight Hoes” featuring Rick Ross and “Get Down” featuring Devin the Dude. Looks like Pimp will get a chance to tell his girls to get down on the floor one more time.
