Accidental Death

The cause of Pimp C’s death has now been revealed:

UGK rapper Pimp C’s death was the result of an overdose that was triggered by a large consumption of codeine medication combined with a pre-existing sleep condition. According to the autopsy report, Pimp C had prescription promethazine/codeine in his system when he died. Initial reports at the time of his death suggested the rapper had over-the-counter codeine in his possession. Pimp C also suffered from sleep apnea, which causes blockage of the airways during sleep. He had prescription medication in him when he passed away, and the levels were elevated but not real high, so it wasn’t an overdose from [the codeine], but we think it was a result of taking the cough medication with his sleeping problems.

R.I.P.

    And these drug companies (and the FDA) will never be held responsible for killing thousands of people yearly.

    …so sad…so silly…

    @nahnah

    biggest drug dealers in the world…

  • Chris

    OVER THE COUNTER CODEINE?! Which counter would sell this type of medication WITHOUT a doc’s note? Codeine is STILL a narcotic and requires a presciption… I am confused. I agree with nahnah regarding the FDA.

    Condolences to his family…

    I’ve never heard of people being addicted to codeine. I just find this crazy that’s the stuff I have to force down my throat when I’m sick…prescription drugs are fast becoming more dangerous that any street drug.

  • imrightdammit

    Co-sign with Chris. There’s no such thing as “over the counter” codeine. It’s a controlled substance. It even has street value and people use it like other drugs to get high. RIP.

    Sleep apnea is serious business. God rest his soul. I love me some UGK.

    So Sad! RIP!

    Codeine is an opiate (naturally occurring opium) so there’s no way you can get it over-the-counter in the USA. Only by prescription. Sleep apnea is also some serious business. r.i.p.

  • bbrolic

    Come on this is ridiculous. One of the most popular drugs in Texas is cough syrup or sizzurp. But Pimp C is the only one in Texas who actually really needed it and his was just accidental! Please Journalists and publicists the reader is not that stupid. Pimp C bragged about his sizzurp use, but it was just accidental! Soon I guess we’ll be hearing about cancer patients bragging about their Chemotherapy!This is just stupid! Instead of lying, be like Magic Johnson and put it out there to create some type of awareness for stupid people like Lil Wayne who teach people how to make the sizzurp concoction on YouTube!

    they shouldnt.. its not their fault people dont take these medications as noted on the bottles. i think the average person takes 1 too many motrin or too much cough syrup when they’re sick and uncomfortable.

    It took all this time when it took Heath (Broke Back GAY BOY) 2 days for toxicology report?

    This the same thing they said DJ Screw died from. ITS ALL COVERT! ! !

    It was a movie out a while ago about how the GV*^#MENT had Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin killed because of their influence. During that time of Vietnam War people were revolutionizing and Nixon was going through a lot of problems.

    THATS RIGHT CONSPIRACY! ! !

    Tupac is dead, Biggie is dead, All of these rappers are dieing, getting locked up and selling out. They getting contracts cancelled, records not promoed, and stallled record deals..

    THEY ARE KILLING RAP AS WE KNOW IT.

    They are also killing all of the hard guys because they are militant. They dont want us to be militant. They want us all dead with women alive so they can breed with them and keep their race alive.

    BELIEVE IT OR NOT! ! !

    They want all these weird nasal sounding rappers and young udes so Eminem will sound normal with his BIG BIRD from SESME STREET SOUNDING AZZ!!

    LOOK AT ALL THE DEATH IN AFRICA. THEY ARE WIPING US OUT.

    OPEN YOUR EYES BEFORE ITS TO LATE!
