FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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 the 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.

In "Guess who's doing it for the hood" news, the ATL homey Young Jeezy was arrested in South Beach over the weekend for allegedly giving some young men the A-town stomp and a few wet t-shirts. He was also charged with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit.

More details EbenGregory, more details.

Okay.

The Snowman was with an entourage of men, allegedly associated with BMF (Black Mafia Family), who were reportedly involved in a fight around 5:30 a.m. Friday, according to a police report. When a passer-by filming the fight refused to hand over his video camera, one of the men in the group began shooting, the report stated.

Jeezy and about nine men fled the scene in two sport utility vehicles, police spokesman Robert Hernandez told The Miami Herald. When the Po-Po stopped both vehicles, they found a semiautomatic firearm under Jeezy's seat and another gun near his armrest when they searched his SUV.

Not only did the Snowman catch a few charges, two members of his group were also arrested. Tramiel De Juan Golden was charged with strong armed robbery, and Steven Lesly Savain of Kendall was taken into custody on trespassing charges stemming from previous warrant for his arrest.

How's that for details. In fact, since you want details.

Here's Jeezy's lawyer, Scott Leemon, to the Miami Herald on Jeezy's arrest: Jeezy adamantly denies that any of the weapons belonged to him and I am confident that Jeezy will be vindicated.

Oh really Mr. Lawyerman?

In getting back to the details, the Snowman was freed on $7,500 bond on two counts of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Jeezy is slated to be arraigned on the gun charges March 31 in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

More details: Jeezy issues wet t-shirts, EbenGregory issues jewelry so.

Here's some jewelry being dropped by EbenGregory on Jeezy being arrested on gun charges and allegedly giving some young men the A-town stomp: If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything. Besides, the best liar is he who makes the smallest amount of lying go the longest way.

I'm into giving you what you want, so I can get what I need. The Jewelry Man is unforgiving, like the night I served 2,000 MC's.

In "All press ain't good press" news, looks like the muscle-bound homey Busta Rhymes won't have to talk to the cops about what happened the night his bodyguard, Israel Ramirez, was killed. The word coming out of New York is that a secret audio recording exists of the argument that sparked the fatal shooting of rapper Busta bodyguard.

Oh really? What's on the tape EbenGregory?

Before we get to that, let me get to this. Authorities believe Busta was standing by Ramirez when he got shot, but he and other witnesses who were at the scene, including Tony Yayo, have refused to cooperate. A transcript of the recording, which was reviewed by the Daily News, allegedly confirms that Tony Yayo, a member of 50 Cent's posse, was a central figure in the argument leading up to the shooting.

Here's the Dailey News telling what they heard on the tape: Rhymes appears to be playing peacemaker during an argument that breaks out while filming Busta's video for Touch It. The voice of a third man, whose identity is not clear, is believed to be the shooter. That man is heard on the recording calling another man, apparently Rhymes, a b*tch.

Interesting, but I think you're holding back EbenGregory.

I am. Here's where it gets tricky, the audio recording is being shopped to media outlets with a price tag of $50,000. And guess what, nobody's given to the cops or prosecutors.

Since you've got all the answers, EbenGregory, what will the Hip-Hop cops have to say?

Here's NYPD to the Dailey News about somebody trying to sell the tape for $50K: I hope the person who has this tape or video would cooperate with authorities, especially if it provides evidence in this case. It's totally irresponsible of this person to withhold what could be a vital piece of evidence in an active homicide investigation.

More young and the restless. The only thing that's missing is...

Here's some jewelry being dropped by EbenGregory on a Busta Rhyme murder tape surfacing and possibly being sold for 50K: Nobody believes the official spokesman... but everybody trusts an unidentified source.
But what do I know.

In "Another case of "keeping it real' going wrong" news, my main man C-Murder recently petitioned the Louisiana Supreme Court for a new trial. I know it's a lot of legal mumbo jumbo involved with this case EbenGregory, so please break down the drama in 57 words or less.

The big homey C-Murder was convicted in 2003 of shooting 16-year-old Steve Thomas to death inside a nightclub. In April "04, Murder got a new trial because the prosecutors were keeping information that some key witnesses had criminal records. But the Louisiana's 5th Circuit Court of Appeal panel disagreed and Murder now faces a mandatory life sentence.

Okay, so now that you've succesfully broke down the drama in 57 words, what's next for Murder EbenGregory?

Murder's lawyers are seeking to have the Supreme Court overturn the Fifth Circuit of Appeal's ruling and get a new trial. If the people in the black robe say no dice, then the homey C-Murder will be making paper airplanes at the puzzle factory for the rest of his life.

I would drop some jewelry, but C-Murder wouldn't be able to use it so why bother?

What's that? You think C-Murder deserves some jewelry anyway? Okay.

Here's some jewelry being dropped by EbenGregory on C-Murder petitioning the Louisiana Supreme Court for a new trial: If rich people could hire other people to go to jail for them, the poor could make a wonderful living.

That is, if Master P would flip the bill.
