Bun B Preps Final UGK Album To Honor Pimp C

SETX native [and hip-hop superstar] Bun B announced his plans to finish up and release the final UGK [Underground Kingz] album, "For Life," March 31 on Jive Records - in honor of his partner the late Pimp C.

Bun B told MTV news: “This will be a good bookend to the legacy of myself and Pimp. And definitely take not just the group, but Pimp C, to true legend and iconic status. This album is not about who I wanna work with and what kind of beats I wanna do — this album is about what the people wanna hear, and that’s Bun and Pimp. And I wanna try to give that to them in the most purest sense.”

UGK's most recent release was "UGK" in 2007’s UGK release.
