    What's Slappin' In My Trunk

    I'm taking it into 2011 with the pimp of the year...

    This week I have been slappin' the latest from Dru Down, Chronicles of a Pimp. I was a little suprised to hear that Dru Down dropped a new album since he hasn't put out a full album since 2006, but i was pleasantly surprised with his latest work. Chronicles of a Pimp is 17 tracks of pimpin' from a real Bay legends. You would think that Dru Down might have already ran the subject of pimpin' into the ground, but he keeps things fresh in 2011 with Chronicles of a Pimp. Chronicles of a Pimp kicks off with Dear God which is a track that goes way deeper than pimpin'. On Dear God  Dru pleads with the man up above to look out for him and his own. It's a poignant thugs prayer, real talk. Hellooo featuring Tha Jacka is the lead single off Chronicles of a Pimp is up next. Hellooo features that familiar hello sample from those Motarolla ads that we have all heard a million times. It's actually a really nice sample and with Tha Jacka's dope verse, it makes Hellooo one of the hardest hitting tracks on Chronicles of a Pimp. International Pimp follows with some real smoothed out ish'. Dru Down really shows off his lyrical abilities on International Pimp; he flips those verbs like white girls. Slap International Pimp in your ride windows down. Dru Down has a host of other features on several other tracks such as Lee Majors & Rahmean on Old School, Husalah on They Choosin, and Messy Marv on Have You Ever Seen. But my favorite features has to be Yukmouth on Lights, Camera, Action. Yukmouth and Dru Down have a long history together and for some reason their styles and voices just go together like Pimps and Hoes. Yukmouth laces the hook on Lights, Camera, Action, but also lays down a verse. The Regime is thick on this song, so get your stunnas on for Lights, Camera, Action. Other slappers on Chronicles of a Pimp include A Yo, Ha Ha, and Bout Dat Money featuring Keak Da Sneak. There really isn't a track you will want to skip on this album, from front to back it hits. Dru Down really steps up his game with this album, I always sort of wrote him off as more of a street rapper and not a lyricist, but Chronicles of a Pimp really proves me wrong. Dru Down can flip a verse. His style is often copied, yet never duplicated which makes him a true original. So if you are looking for something fresh from an East Bay O.G. or if you just want to get your pimpin' up cop Chronicles of a Pimp.
