It's not quite up to Tupac-level proportions yet, but UGK keeps pouring out that prime Southern rap unencumbered by Pimp C's untimely December 2007 demise.

The latest track, leaked by the Smoking Section this morning, is the expertly sculpted ode to steering wheels "Grippin' On the Wood," featuring the Port Arthur duo's Mississippian associate/acolyte Big K.R.I.T.

We'll let Pimp take it from here: "Grippin' on the wood, grippin on the wood, every fuckin' day a young nigga live good/ Got a pocket full of cheese, yella on my dick/ Every fuckin' day I'm on some pimped-out shit."

Even (half) posthumously, UGK is still the class of their field. Smoking Section also reports the duo will release another album, Still Pimpin', July 12. Besides K.R.I.T., featured guests include Slim Thug, Cory Mo and Too $hort.

Rocks Off is trying to flag down Bun B for a quick interview, so check back here soon.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
