I know i'm gonna piss some of ya'll off with what i'm about to say but when you live ignorant like Pimp C and Spice 1 do, you put your life in danger. I'm a fan of UGK and Spice 1 but they're ignorant. They hang around ignorant black men who aren't doing shit with their life and all they wanna do is leech off of rappers who got money. Rappers got this stupid ass mentality that it's cool to hang out in the hood and it's not cool to hang out in the hood because there's a lot of ignorant black men in the hood who are criminals and they aren't interested in getting a real job because they aren't interested in education and intelligence. That's why so many stupid ass black men in the hood only wanna be criminals, rappers, NBA players, NFL players because they think those professions are the only way they can make a lot of money. How did Pimp C die? Why did Spice 1 get shot?

think about it though, Pimp C and Spice one died, and we're all here paying respects because they're achieve a lot, from nothing.




your going to die, and absolutely nobody will care ya know..

It's like you might as well kill yourself... you've gone this long and your still a cartoon character on an internet forum...

in fact think about it, if you've gone this long and nobody loves you, it's not gonna get any better.

infact if it leaks on the internet that you died, we'd just sit back and make jokes about it.

the thread wouldn't even pass 2 pages homie.

that's your legacy...2 pages on Wu-tangcorp.com


anyways, RIP Pimp C and Spice 1

i've always liked Spice since my boy put me on to his shit not to long ago and even before that when i heard him murder "hard to kill" with Meth

I'm just speaking the truth about Pimp C and Spice 1 and for those who don't like what i said, i don't give a shit. If Pimp C and Spice 1 had lived their life differently, they wouldn't have put themselves in danger. Spice 1 died? How do you know? Somebody said he got shot in the neck. The person who said that didn't say that he died.

So Spice 1 really is dead? Damn he was one of my favorite rappers. Anybody know why he got shot? I'm not disrespecting the dead. All i'm saying is they wouldn't be dead if they had lived their life differently. Pimp C and Spice 1 i'm sure liked to smoke and drink alcohol a lot and they know that that's not good for your body which can cause you to die.

lol that's what im talking about though

you die only you immediate family MIGHT care, think about that, your influence or achievements haven't touched anyone outside of ppl that are genetically drawn to caring about you.

Even look at your brothers, you know that you'll be one of the less missed in the family. I guarentee you've got brothers that if they died they'd be missed more then you. This is the internet, so you can say im wrong, or deny it, or pretend that's not the fact but your only lying to yourself.

you KNOW they're the only one's that'll care, that's a sorry legacy, just die now homie, at least they'll care more now that your young.




or atleast i hope your still young, cause then you'd REALLY be a failure.

"lived differently"

and then you ask how he died?

so how do you know it had something to do with how he lived?



make a list of the ppl that'll care if you died and give an amount of time it'll take them to get over it homie


Pimp C couldn't do that, Spice 1 couldn't do that, you can

okay i see what your sayin but

fat joe, redman, some members of wu tang, some members of bcc, etc
still live in the hood and they are alive and kickin

but i see your point and maybe you couldve said it in a non offensive manner
alot of rappers go back to the hood and show off thier bling
if they dont have the hoods respect and go around showin off what they got then they gonna get sticked !!

your argument is a double edged sword
it can go either way

http://www.sixshot.com/images/images/spice1_thetruth_cover.jpgRumors of Bay Area rapper Spice 1 being shot early Monday morning (December 4) in his hometown of Haywood, California have been confirmed.
Spice 1’s manager, Six, revealed to Baller Status that the rapper was shot twice, once in the chin and in the chest. Spice, whose real name is Robert L Green Jr., is reportedly in critical condition at a local hospital. The name of the hospital was not disclosed.
Details surrounding Spice’s shooting have not been revealed but rumors which were circulating the net early Monday claimed he was shot during a robbery attempt.
Spice 1 rose to fame in the early 90’s via Jive Records (http://www.sixshot.com/news/9078/#) and is well known for his single “Trigga With No Heart”. During his lengthy career, he has collaborated with 2Pac (http://www.sixshot.com/news/9078/#), Too Short, E-40 and Method Man, among others.

Los Angeles, CA - Manager Rick Martin, who was on hand this morning to identify the body of client and dear friend Chad Butler aka Pimp C, offers this statement regarding today's tragic loss:

This morning saw the loss of a man that was not only a client, but a very dear friend at a time when he had the most to live for. He was my best friend and I will always love him.

Chad's tragic passing leaves behind mourners the world over, including his mother, wife and children whom Chad loved more than anything. An official cause of death has yet to be determined.

I was so very proud of Chad and the growth he has shown since his release from prison; as an artist and business man and as a person. As one half of the legendary Texas group UGK, Chad was finally seeing th results of the years of love and labor that he and Bun B have put in over the years, culminating in the tremendous success of their album, Underground Kingz. Chad was set to soar with not only a new solo deal on Jive Records, but a lucrative publishing deal, a new satellite radio show, several group projects and a national cologne endorsement. Chad had everything to live for, making his unexpected passing a travesty.

Right now, my number one concern is the well being and livelihood of his family who are the ones most deeply affected by this loss. All efforts will be made to ensure that they are properly cared for in this tragic time and beyond.

As Chad's friend and manager, and on behalf of his family and those closest to him, we ask that you, the press keep reports of his passing to tributes to his amazing contributions as an artist and wait for the facts surrounding his death to come to light. Please let us all remember Pimp C as the kind and warmhearted man and rap music pioneer that he was.

Thank you,

Rick Martin / FM2 Inc.
