The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones will be the final posthumous album released by the late, great legendary Pimp C, following his UGK partner Bub-B’s 5 Mic-worthy solo album Trill O.G, which came out earlier this month. While I doubt Pimp C had ever heard of Drake, that’s not stopping Drizzy from rapping and singing on “What Up”. Hip Hop’s resident crooner-in-chief also brought in some back-up in the form of slick beats courtesy of Drake frequent collaborator and prominent up-and-coming producer Boi 1-da. Hear the song below:
Pimp C – “What Up” feat. Bun B & Drake
Not the Cyndi Lauper song you’re probably thinking of.
Samples the song of the same name by Quindon Tarver, from the ’96 Romeo + Juliet soundtrack
Tha Carter V is supposedly out on Dec. 9th
