Atlanta's 10th annual A3C Festival is right around the corner and word on web is the festivities will include a tribute to late UGK rapper Pimp C hosted by Bun B.
As reported by XXL, the tribute, presented by Mass Appeal, will act as a precursor to the release of rare material from the estate of Pimp C via Mass Appeal Records.
