Editorial Reviews

2009 release. Universally regarded as the true voice of the South, UGK 4 Life is their eighth and final album. With all new material recorded before the untimely passing of founding member and super producer Pimp C, this album is sure to be an instant classic. This album is set to please the fans and the critics with the standard UGK beats that people have come to expect combined with the lyrics of a group that has been the voice for so many. 18 tracks.

Man, I wasn't sure about this CD. I thought it might be one of those wack CDs with odds and ends put together, but after hearing it I believe Bun B when he says this is the CD UGK envisioned before Pimp C passed away. This is a dope CD with that funky funky production and Bun B and Pimp C on top of their game! Only loses points for the Akon song cause the hook could have been better on that one, the beat works well though on that one. Wish UGK wasn't gone, but I will gladly take this as their final CD!

RIP PIMP C!

It's been 17 years since their first album, and 19 months since their last album and 15 months since Pimp C died, and the 6th and last UGK installment is yet another very good, 4.5 star album from one of, if not the best, group to come out of the south. I have all 6 UGK albums, their featuring album, and all the solo's the 2 put out, and never have they released something under 4 stars, with most being 4.5 or 5 star albums. This one has 14 songs, each member has a solo, and you get 3 near classics, 3 ok songs, the other 8 are good or real good songs. Guests aren't too heavy, rapping on 4 songs and doing hooks on 4 others. Production is very good as well. Pimp C, Steve Below, and Cory mo all do 3 songs, Mike Dean, Mannie Fresh, DJ B-Do, Akon, Averexx all do 1 song. A must have album from one of the all time greatest rap groups.

Bun B said it best, "There will never be another ridin dirty but this is definitely something to ride to." I could not agree more and all my people from tha south,especially Texas and Louisiana, know what Im talking about when we use the term something to ride to. This is definitely an album that if you have a system in ya ride you should play it as loud as possible. I too can listen to the whole cd without changing a single song.

There is also a couple of tracks that remind me of the early days of UGK from such classic cds as Too Hard to Swallow, Supertight and of course Ridin Dirty. The song Feelin You would have fit perfectly on anyone of these three classic cds. Harry A** Hole has a sample of I Left it For U and Da Game Been Good to Me is one of the best on the cd. Other favorites include The Pimp and the Bun, Steal Your Mind, Swishas and Erb, Used To Be and Everybody Wanna Ball.

In Conclusion this is a great cd and perfect send off for the legendary group that will be sadly missed due to the untimely death of the pimp. Everytime UGK was about to truly get the respect they deserve something happened that delayed their greatness. UGK is the greates rap group to come out the south and are tthe true Underground Kingz. RIP to tha Pimp. Bun hold it down especially since I believe Bun is one of the greatest rappers of all time.

If you dig any UGK past material you will love this. If this is your first taste of their southern fried country rap tunes my review's title tells their style. Music like this tends to stand the test of time instead of being hot for a month and then not later. One thing to note is that I would describe this album as being a little more soulfull, smooth, slow, and laidback than previous albums.

I would say however their last, self-titled album "Underground Kingz" is their Magnum opus, and a must have you should check out, especially if this is the first time you've heard them. I cant wait for Bun-B's next material/projects, RIP Pimp C.

Check the rock influenced "Still on the Grind", the organ on "Everybody wanna ball", the twangy "Da Game Been Good to Me", inspirational "Used to Be", laid "Swishas and Herb", playalistic "Steal your mind", ya girl will dig "Hard as Hell" and "she luv it"... theres just tooooo many tooo many.

It's UGK, the last album of it's kind. Pimp C Bun B, legends in the south, in rap.
UGK, life is not their best work, but it is their last.
Every since to hard to swallow till now they have laid it down!
RIP Pimp,
Bun B is now the best rapper in the south....maybe in the game!

Where do I start? This album is definitive UGK music right here. Pimp C on the intro brought a chill over me when he said 2009. They never miss a beat (literally). I really appreciate Cory Mo and Steve Below on the beats. They really fit into this album sound-wise and I'm sure Pimp is looking down smiling on them for what they did. I love the organs, guitars, BASS, and other live instruments that was brought to this. I needed this album like the last one. It was right on time for me. I'm going to try to not listen to it for 2-3 days so it can still be new to me.
