A year after tasting mainstream success with Jigga on his hit single "Big Pimpin'" and five years after their definitive RIDIN' DIRTY, Port Author, Texas's own Underground Kingz (Pimp C and Bun-B) re-formed for their fourth major label release, 2001's DIRTY MONEY. With deep-fried southern funkadelic production that utilizes booming bass-lines, wah guitar riffs, and an array of compressed drum tracks, Pimp C's beatwork provides the ideal backdrop to the duo's back-and-forth lyrical onslaught. Largely overlooked (both commercially and critically) and under-promoted at the time of its release, DIRTY MONEY has stood the test of time and, in years since, has come to represent the best of that pure Dirty South G-Crunk before the region and its various subgenres became commercial goldmines. DIRTY MONEY features a thick guestlist that includes Eightball & MJG, Big Gipp of the Goodie Mob, Juicy J and DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia, Kool Ace, Too $hort, Jermaine Dupri, and Devin the Dude.
Vibe (12/01, p.194) - 3.5 discs out of 5 - "...When the duo raps over trunk-rattlin' beats and dense, slow-noddin', bluesy soundscapes...their swaggering flow is still seductive..."
