Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- 'Da Game Been Good to Me' reminds us what rap lost with Pimp C's death: one of its most musical and melodic MCs, with a thick drawl and a knack for wildly elongating words..."

Spin (p.98) - "UGK 4 LIFE is a fitting capper to this Texas duo's storied career -- nothing groundbreaking, just funky, rough-hewn, celebratory tracks."

Blender (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The languid beats are hazy with heat-distortion organs...the spirit is carefree....Pimp excelled at scowling, bawdy boasts, and he creates his own eulogy here..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "Bun-B's performance is a masterwork of nuance here, sounding doubled even when it's obvious he's not..."

Album Notes

A unique memorial to Pimp C, who died in December 2007, UGK 4 LIFE doesn't smother the duo's swan song in posthumous sentiment. (There's a foreboding proclamation from Pimp C during the intro that he and Bun B are "back from the dead.") But from there, his surviving partner and production team let the music--and familiar themes of sex and other forms of indulgent relaxation--take center stage. Apart from inviting a revaluation of the late rapper's underrated soulfulness, 4 LIFE serves as a testament to UGK's trademark smoothness, which, on their final collaboration, evokes what the Ohio Players might sound like if they were updated for the hip-hop generation.
