On October 5, Rap-A-Lot/Fontana Records will release what is believed to be the final album from Pimp C. The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones is slated to be a star-studded ensemble album from the Port Arthur, Texas emcee/producer known for his role in UGK. The work follows 2006’s Pimpalation as the rapper’s third solo album.
Like his UGK partner Bun B’s recently-released Trill O.G., Naked Soul will feature a who’s who of southern mainstream Rap today, including onetime adversary Young Jeezy, who Pimp C exchanged words in the media with, prior to his untimely December 2007 death. Besides Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, longtime collaborators such as Too Short, E-40 and Devin The Dude also appear.
The tracklisting for The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones is as follows:
1. Down 4 Mine
2. Untitled Track (feat. Lil Wayne, Bun B & Drake)
3. Fly Lady
4. Love 2 Ball
5. Since The 90’s (feat. Gator Mane & E-40)
6. Dickies (feat. Bun B & Young Jeezy)
7. Midnight Hoes (feat. Rick Ross)
8. Made Fo (feat. Too Short)
9. Believe In Me (feat. Ivory P, Cory Mo, Heezi, BankRoll Jones, Bub & The UnderDogs)
10. Hit The Parking Lot (feat. Webbie & Lil’ Boosie)
12. Get Down (feat. Devin The Dude)
13. Go To War (feat. Bun B)
UPDATE: It was confirmed today that production duties for Naked Soul of Sweet Jones will be handled by Boi-1da, David Banner and longtime UGK producers Steve Below and Cory Mo. “Down 4 Mine” is listed as a song in which Scarface developed the idea to.
