Pimp C Laid to Rest in Texas

12/13/2007 2:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Pimp C's funeral in Port Arthur, Texas is currently underway.


KFDM-TV cameras caught the hearse pulling up to the Robert A. Bowers Civic Center in the rapper's hometown this morning. As TMZ first reported Pimp C, aka Chad Butler, was found dead last week in his room at Hollywood's Mondrian Hotel.

According to KFDM, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg had planned on attending -- but were no shows. We're told one time collaborator C-Murder also won't be able to make it. He's on house arrest awaiting his murder retrial. Rappers Bun B, Chamillionaire and Mike Jones were all in attendance.
