iTunes Review

A rap album that holds new-school innovation and old-school basics in perfect balance; a double-album colossus with a minimum of filler; a veteran group’s affirmation that after 20 years in the business, they are better than ever. Without question, Underground Kingz is a rare accomplishment on multiple levels. Atlanta’s own dynamic duo appears here on “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You)” a beam of endless radiance that brings together the South’s top minds over a timeless Willie Hutch sample. Yet the album only begins there. Following a seven-year absence from recording and Pimp C’s four-year incarceration, Underground Kingz is designed as a comeback album on the highest order — both a reaffirmation of a signature sound that helped lay the foundation for Southern rap music, and an authentication that these 20-year veterans can compete with the best that the younger generation has to offer. “Chrome Plated Woman,” “Quit Hatin’ the South,” “How Long Can It Last,” and “Shattered Dreams” are molasses-and-gravy-coated Pimp C productions that stand next to anything from Ridin’ Dirty or Super Tight, while “Grind Hard” and “Take the Hood Back” prove that the group can ride as hard and heavy as the current crop. The guest list (everyone from Too Short to Talib Kweli to Big Daddy Kane) reflects UGK cross-regional appeal, but the duo alone shines strongest. “The Game Belongs To Me” is definitive UGK: the lifetime partners, trading sneers and stories over syrup-thick soul music.

RIP

RIP Pimp C! b/c of u texas was put on the map. ur legacy will not be forgotten. rest easy bro

Pimp C is the illlest producer in the game

If this album was 12 or 13 songs long it might be their best- to me about half of it is cold as hell and the other half is average. 2009, Living This Life, Quit Hatin, How Long, Trill Niggz, Shattered Dreamz all sound like Pimp C tracks and they are all off the meat rack. Shout to 3-6 for the hot beat on Player's anthem but they needed to put Project Pat back on the song, he ripped it harder than anyone except for Andre maybe. If you are looking for some more $hit like this check out Sweet James Jones stories, that was full of some ill Pimp beats, way better than Pimpilation or Bun's solo effort. UGK needs to release instrumental versions of their albums cuz anyone sounds like a pimp freestylin over these beats... so dank... Too many people been sleepin on UGK for way too long, they were the Dirty South originals with Outkast and Geto Boys. Been bumping them since "Too hard" and they been steady puttin out top quality product.

UGK are the Underground Kings

I just bought the album. One of the best albums i have ever heard. Keep going strong UGK!
