Macho rap-metal quintet Pimpadelic was formed in Fort Worth, TX, in 1992 by vocalist/guitarist Donnie "Easy Jesus" Franks and drummer Charles "Madison" Winchell, who had grown up together in the nearby town of Blue Mound and adopted some of the attitude of the country music that permeated their childhood. Over the next four years, various members entered and exited the group, with the lineup finally coalescing around Sean "DJ MIA" Baker, rapper Brandon Kord "Dirty K" Murphy, and bassist E.J. "Cha Chi R. Cola" Cernosek Jr. Pimpadelic recorded a CD, titled Barely Legal, in 1996, following it with 1998's Statutory Rap, which they supported with regular gigs in Los Angeles. They soon landed a deal with Tommy Boy and remixed their locally released 1999 album Southern Devils to obtain a bigger, meatier sound; the results were issued in the spring of 2000 as, logically enough, Southern Devils 2000. ~ Steve Huey
