Ridin' Dirty is the third studio album by American hip hop duo UGK. It was released on July 30, 1996 by Jive Records. Despite no music videos or official singles being released, it is their best selling album with over 850,000 copies sold to date, with 70,000 copies sold in its first week. After receiving little attention from national critics upon its release, the album received widespread critical acclaim
UGK’s third album, Ridin' Dirty, is their first to be released by a major label, which gives you some sort of indication of how far the group has gone in four short years. In that span of time, UGK scaled to the top of the small but vicious hip-hop scene in the Southern United States, creating a distinctive gangsta hybrid in the process. UGK is just as hedonistic and materialistic as those rappers out on the West Coast, but they don’t infuse their music with the deep funk of the Cali scene, nor do they revel in the buoyant bass of their Miami brethren.
Ridin' Dirty is the third album by UGK. Despite no music videos or official singles being released, it is their best selling album with 847,454 copies sold as of 2011, with 67,200 copies sold in its first week out.
