Synopsis: A pioneer in the South's quest for respect in the Hip Hop world and one of the most colorful characters to emerge from the music scene which ultimately topped rap charts at the turn of the century, Chad "Pimp C" Butler's controversial life - and suspicious death in 2007 - left behind many unanswered questions, a family divided, and scores of talented new artists inspired by his group UGK's music. Sweet Jones pays tribute to the extremely talented - yet bipolar and complex - musician who embodied the Southern dream. Written by the founder and Editor-in-Chief of esteemed Southern rap publication OZONE Magazine and compiled from interviews with Pimp C himself, his mother and manager Weslyn "Mama Wes" Monroe, UGK rap partner Bun B, and hundreds of friends, family members, and collaborators like Snoop Dogg, Scarface, Too $hort, 8Ball & MJG, Jazze Pha, David Banner, Mannie Fresh, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, Trae, and Willie D of the Geto Boys, Sweet Jones is a must-read for any Southern rap fan.

From the Back Cover: "[Pimp C] was brilliant, but he was mad; he was a little nutty. He was a madman, and he really didn't give a shit. That's what was so endearing and refreshing about him, and what made him such a special person ... [He] had a rough exterior but underneath it all he had a big heart and was really just a good person who was - as many artists are - just frustrated, [trying] to get his voice heard." - Barry Weiss, former CEO of Jive Records

"I wouldn't be here without [UGK] ... All it takes is one person to do something and make everybody else feel that they can do it too. And they was one of the first to do it." - Lil Wayne

"[UGK] gave birth to Southern rap. UGK made it cool to be country." - Scarface

"Pimp C helped lay the foundation that we stand on where Southern Hip-Hop music is concerned." - J. Prince, CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records, Raw Report DVD

"I grew up on 'em. If it wasn't for UGK, Ludacris probably wouldn't even be here." - Ludacris, The Final Chapter DVD

"[Pimp C] was a revolutionary. He was an undercover agent of God. [To] change people's lives, you gotta be able to get into spots where people need the most help." - Kool Ace

"Pimp was larger than life. I honestly thought he would live forever." - Nancy Byron, Pimp C's publicist, The Source Magazine

"The [posthumous] music doesn't really matter to me. I'd give it all back if I could have my friend back." - Bun B, Houston Chronicle

"As we keep a lighter up for the Pimp, it's only right that we remember him not just for his often-under-rated musical contribution but also for his indomitable, smack-talking spirit." - The FADER
