About K-Paul & Pimpin Pen
For those unaware, V.I.P. is a rap duo out of Austin, Texas consisting of members K-Paul and Pimpin' Pen, who also happen to be first cousins. They founded, own and operate the independent Nina Ross Records imprint, which is home to Go DJ JB.
The last we heard of V.I.P. was their February 2014 single / visual "Gettin To Tha Racks", which featured fellow Texan emcee and frequent collaborator Trae Tha Truth on the assist. It'll be included on their upcoming collaborative album Country Cousins, which is slated to drop in 2014 and will feature guest appearances from Freddie Gibbs, Propain, ESG, Killa Kyleon and Z-Ro and more.
