It’s been more than five years since UGK’s Pimp C passed away. As you know, Pimp died in 2007 from respiratory failure brought on by a codeine aka “sizzurp” overdose. Gone to soon, now his rap lyrics will be reborn by way of a new album produced by Three 6 Mafia’s, Juicy J. The rapper tweeted the news yesterday: “I’m producing the new pimp c album unreleased material it’s gone be a movie!!!!!!!”

One things for sure the rap groups did collaborate on a lot of music together from, “Sippin’ on Some Syrup” to “Int’l Players Anthem.” So, there’s no doubt that more hits will come of this. In the meantime, Juicy is prepping the release of his debut and I got all the details below with Tha Wire.
The New York Police Department’s controversial Stop-and-Frisk policy has FINALLY been ruled a violation of constitutional rights by a federal judge on Monday. Four men filed a class-action lawsuit against the NYPD back in 2004 claiming they were racially profiled and stopped by police for no reason. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin said that nine of the 19 stops testified about during the 10-week Floyd vs. City of New York trial were unconstitutional and five stops included wrongful frisking.
The judge said, “The city’s highest officials have turned a blind eye to the evidence that officers are conducting stops in a racially discriminatory manner. In their zeal to defend a policy that they believe to be effective, they have willfully ignored overwhelming proof that the policy of targeting ‘the right people’ is racially discriminatory.”
Meanwhile, Judge Scheindlin did not end the policy, but offered that it be reformed. An independent court monitor has been assigned to oversee the reforms to the policy. On top of that, police in areas where most of the stops took place were also ordered to test wearing body cameras.
Ben Jealous, NAACP President and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner both agree with the ruling. Jealous said, “This is a groundbreaking victory,” and Weiner called the ruling a “teachable moment for our city.”
However, not everybody is happy about this. Find out what currant Mayor Bloomberg had to say now. Plus get the rest of today’s juicy details with Tha Wire. Press play now.
