R.I.P. Video #61: Pimp Daddy



Broadcasting from tha Abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike, here in Wells Tannery, PA, it's ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog here, sadly reportin' anotha tragic loss in tha Louisiana rap community (special edition).

Today, April 18, 2018, marks 24 years since tha murder of Edgar Givens, known in tha undaground, Louisiana rap scene as Pimp Daddy. Givens was born in 1976 and was from New Orleans. An early artist signed with Cash Money Records, Givens released his debut album, Still Pimpin', in 1993. Lookin' like he had a bright future ahead of him, unfortunately, tha good times were short-lived for Givens. In tha Florida projects in New Orleans on April 18, 1994, Givens was fatally shot and killed at point-blank range. While tha murder remains unsolved to this day, many believe a musical love triangle resulted in Givens' death. During his Cash Money time, Givens was said to be dating labelmate, Ms. Tee. However, another labelmate, Cheeky Blakk, claimed that Givens was tha father of her child. Needless to say, Givens was in an argument with Ms. Tee's brother. That's when Givens was shot in tha face and killed at only 18 years-old. One year after his death, Givens' 2nd album, Pimp'n Ain't E-Z, was released in 1995.
