Though Houston’s Bun B has been carrying the UGK flag in the wake of his partner-in-rhyme’s passing, Pimp C is 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.
