Julia Beverly interviewed 250 people for the book, which is being written under the guidance of Pimp C’s mother and manager, Weslyn “Mama Wes” Monroe.
Beverly interviewed Pimp C’s UGK partner BUN B for the book, as well as Snoop Dogg, Three 6 Mafia, 8Ball & MJG, the Geto Boys, Master P, David Banner, Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Ice-T, Goodie Mob, Lil Keke, Z-Ro, Trae, Webbie and Mannie Fresh, among others for the book.
In addition to telling the story of Pimp C, “the book explores Houston’s dynamic music culture, the pitfalls of the entertainment industry, the economics and racial disparity of the massive Texas Criminal Justice system, the realities of the pimp/prostitute subculture and human trafficking, the hazards of drug abuse and much more,” the press release says.
Pimp C died in West Hollywood in December 2007. In February 2008, reportedly a ” combination of codeine and promethazine found in the rapper’s system, coupled with the sleep disorder apnea, caused his death.”
