In recent years Fred "Pimpin' Pen" Freeman and his maternal cousin Kenneth "K-Paul" Wallace have become synonymous with Austin Hiphop as the duo Versace Ice and Platinum (BKA VIP). While his partner in rhyme K-Paul is taking a hiatus to deal with legal issues, it hasn't stopped Pimpin' Pen from moving forward. With a newly reformed Nina Ross Records roster coming together with Pimpin' at the helm, this young G still has alot on the table, including plans for a Nina Ross Compilation album, the second installment of "02 Block Edition" (a mix-compilation series showcasing talent from VIP's East Austin neighborhood), solo projects for the new label's subsequent artists, mix CD's, and the highly anticapated collaboration album between VIP and Norway's Pass It Records beatsmith DJ Nastykutt. All this on the table, while VIP's yet unreleased original mixtape "Underground Empire" sits in limbo amongst doubts whether all parties will be present for a respectable promo run. Pimpin' Pen is gearing up for a solo project with early estimates at a late 2008 release date.
