And the hits keep fucking coming.
According to this TMZ report, Pimp C was found dead in his bed in a Sunset Strip hotel room this morning.
The rapper, born Chad Butler, had just performed with Too Short at the LA House of Blues last Saturday.
Watch this space for details as they come. The jocks at 97.9 the Boxx have been playing some of Pimp's finest and taking calls since the news broke; Lil' Wayne just called in. -- John Nova Lomax
