Celebrating Pimp C: Three 6 Mafia’s ‘Sippin On Some Syrup’
December 4 was the 10 year Anniversary of Pimp C’s death. To commemorate him we’re gonna share a couple of our favorite videos from his long, influential career.
‘Sippin On Some Syrup’ is a purple’d-out Hip Hop classic that’s a precursor to the lean epidemic that’s topical in today’s scene. Juicy J and DJ Paul take an underappreciated Marvin Gaye track to sample for the track, and Pimp C spits a great verse, but in particular the line that rings out is, ‘We eat some many shrimp/ I got Iodine poisonin,’ amplified by his classic drawl. RIP The Pimp.
