On the same day which has the world wishing Jay-Z a happy birthday and Hov offering up a personal listing of his best albums, Jay decided to honor his late friend Pimp C the best way he could on the fifth anniversary of his death. Without warning, Sean Carter released the official remix of “Tom Ford” accompanied by a previously unreleased verse from the former UGK member.
One of Jay’s close friends, Pimp C’s legacy continues to live on in tracks like “Tom Ford (Remix)”. While Hov’s entire contribution stays the same, the addition of Pimp C to the “Tom Ford (Remix)” is more proof of the influence of Sweet Jones. On the day most are honoring him, it is quite admirable that Jay-Z is once again paying his respects Pimp C.
