UGK: Ridin' Dirty (1996). A Texas Rap Manifesto (feat. Nathan

B. Cox once again welcomes Nathan "The Professor" Rideaux of Food Dope Podcast to review UGK's third album, the southern classic Ridin' Dirty. After feeling neglected, underutilized and underfunded by their record lable Jive, the Texas duo went to work to lay their classic album to prove them and the industry wrong. Over soulful, funky and bass heavy production by Pimp C and N.O. Joe, they sought to bring the industry to a slice of life in their corner of the world in Texas; life riddled with hard times, drug problems and war, murder and struggling to get by. The reality in their raps backed by the superb production gave Bun B and Pimp C their best selling album to date.
