Pimp C’s Mom

Pimp C’s mother spoke to a local news station about the death of her son Chad Butler.

Via TMZ:

“Actually, we have very little idea of what happened, “C’s business manager found his body in his hotel room in Los Angeles and we know he died in his sleep. Past that, we don’t know anything.”

“This is a terrible shock,” added Monroe, “Mama is just a little tougher than most, but I break too.” Pimp’s mom said she has received tremendous support from family, friends, artists and other entertainers. “The phone won’t stop ringing. It feels good, if anything can feel good now,” she explained, remembering how much Pimp C loved the Port Arthur, Tex. community: “He loved PA … Even when he came home he chose to live here. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure of it. But he was, this was his choice.”

The 33-year-old rapper, real name Chad Butler, died yesterday at Hollywood’s Mondrian Hotel. He is survived by his wife and three children. He, along with Bun B, made up the Houston rap duo UGK. Funeral plans are pending.
