In wake of the death of UGK rapper Pimp C on Tuesday, fellow Houston rapper Lil’ Flip spoke with The Associated Press about the sad news. “That’s what everybody grew up listening to in the South,” Flip said. “UGK is to the South what Run DMC was to New York.” Flip added, “He influenced me to be fly at all times. He said ‘Flip, don’t go out with dirty nails and a microphone. You’ve got to be fly if you want to get that money.'” chron.com has since removed the article.
