Arthur, Best Friend, and Billboard: #BallerAlert's Today in Hip-Hop: 10th Anniversary of Pimp C's Death @balleralert BallerAlert’s Today in Hip-Hop: 10th Anniversary of Pimp C’s Death-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Today marks the ten year anniversary of the death of Rap legend, PimpC. Pimp C was born Chad Lamont Butler and is best known for being a founding member of the rap group Underground Kingz (UGK), alongside his best friend, BunB. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The duo formed the rap group in 1987 in Port Arthur, Texas. In 1991 they signed with Jive Records and released a number of albums, including ‘Too Hard to Swallow’, ‘Super Tight’, and ‘Ridin' Dirty’ which reached 2 on the Billboard Top R&B-Hip-Hop Albums chart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ With hits such as JayZ’s "Big Pimpin'," "Sippin' on Some Syrup" with Three6Mafia, and “International Player’s Anthem (I Choose You)” with OutKast, the duo established themselves as leaders of the southern Rap game. To this day, Pimp C’s unique voice and southern flow, still keeps us intrigued and wanting more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ On Dec. 4, 2007, Pimp C was found dead in a hotel in West Hollywood, California. It was reported that his death was partially attributed to his use of the recreational drug “lean” or “sizzurp” that he often referenced to in his music. The deadly concoction consists of codeine and promethazine. In conjunction with his preexisting sleep apnea, the drug was cited as his cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What’s your favorite Pimp C song?

Beautiful, God, and Love: Brandy Gets Emotional During "Moesha" Cast 16-Year Reunion, Talks the Possibility of a Reboot 31 @balleralert 빴 Brandy Gets Emotional During “Moesha” Cast 16-Year Reunion, Talks the Possibility of a Reboot – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The ‘90s are back in full effect. After 16 years, the cast of “Moesha” sat down with the ladies of “The Real” to discuss a potential reboot. During the discussion, Brandy, who played Moesha in the 90s hit, became overwhelmed with emotion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This is just such a great moment,” Brandy said. “This is beautiful. This is God. This is love. This is everything. Thank you guys so much for this moment.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The show, which aired from 1996 to 2001, ended with a cliffhanger, which fueled the idea for a reboot. With Moesha’s little brother, Miles, getting kidnapped, Moesha moving in with her boyfriend Hakeem, and a pregnancy test being found in her dorm room, the reboot can pick up from anywhere the original show left off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, two original cast members have since passed on, including Lamont Bentley, otherwise known as Hakeem, who died in a car crash in 2005, and YvetteWilson, better known as Andell, who died in 2012 after battling cancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still, the entire cast agreed that they would be would down for a reboot, with Marcus T. Paulk, who played Miles, throwing out the idea of a movie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Would you be here for a Moesha movie?
