Issue 56 Long Live Pimp C

Long Live The Pimp C

Chad and I knew each other our whole lives. We started school together at Central Baptist in Port Arthur, Texas. It was a private school with less than 10 black students. We linked back up in 1999 at DJ DMD’s studio… It was my hangout spot when I got off of work. I was the little sister of the studio. Chad had a big heart. He always took care of his grandmother and mom. We had our first kid in 2001 and got married right after that. He was a great father. He was a lot of fun, but he was also the disciplinarian. His number one rule was for the kids to tell the truth.

It was devastating when Chad passed. I left him in California and called to see why he didn’t make his flight, and he was already gone. All the kids have been through a lot. My daughter was close to her father, but she is very accustomed to her dad being gone. After she was born, he went to jail. Then when he came home, he was on the road a lot. In a two-year span we lost Chad, my grandfather, and then my dad. With so much loss, I had to put my game face on and work like Chad and still be a Mom. The experience showed my daughter that quitting when life gets hard is not an option.

I’ve been working on a final album of Chad’s work for the past seven years. It’s been a healing process, and Chad made it very easy for me. He left a blue print for the project when he passed, so that’s where we started. It’s given me a better understanding of the work he’s done and how much his music is missed. I’m looking forward to sharing this album with you soon.

With Regards,

Miss B. aka Ms. Chinara Butler

Widow of Chad “Pimp C” Butler
