Coroner: Pimp C May Have Died of Natural Causes

12/4/2007 8:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pimp CCapt. Ed Winter of the L.A. County Coroner's office tells TMZ that it appears as though rapper Pimp C died of natural causes in a Hollywood hotel room today.

We're told no drug paraphernalia or other drugs were found in the room. The rapper, we've learned, was found fully clothed on top of the bed. He did not seem to have fallen or injured himself and he was positioned on his side.

Winter said it did not appear that there was anyone else in the room at the time of his death. An autopsy will be performed and toxicology test results will be available in six to eight weeks.

Pimp C, whose real name is Chad Butler, was one half of the Houston rap duo UGK.

Chad Butler Also Known As "Pimp C" REST IN PEACE
.
My condolences to your family and friends. May the Almighty GOD give them the strength to endure. No one knows the day nor the hour.
I loved Pimp C's voice and rapping style, him and a guy I dated (Martella P. God bless the dead) sounded so much alike every time I heard Pimp C, I thought of him. Thank you so much Pimp C !!!!
I remember my brother said, "listen to this" it was "HIGH LIFE" it was my first taste of UGK and I was hooked.

" I wish i had the power to turn back the hands of time, I wonder if there is a heaven up there for REAL G's" A verse by Pimp C from "I MISS MY HOMIES" again another song that does it for me.
You made your mark in society and a place in my heart. May GOD bless your soul Mr. CHAD BUTLER

Just like the song said "ONE DAY YOUR HERE AND THEN YOUR GONE!!!!"

BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
