With the release of Long Live the Pimp there were more posthumous Pimp C albums available (three) than LPs released within his lifetime (two). This collection sounds more like the patched-together Still Pimping (2011) than the more "believable" The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones (2010), and it even includes a previously released cut, "Wavybone," which appeared on A$AP Rocky's At. Long. Last. A$AP album as an UGK guest appearance. Names like Nas, David Banner, Juicy J, and Lil Wayne give the album star power while appearing with these unreleased Pimp verses, and the MC's former UGK cohort Bun B is here as well for authenticity. Fun, but hardly necessary.
