Bun B Rapper |Bun B Ugk

Pimp C started the rap duo UGK  in the late 1980s . He first released a demo tape titled “Underground King” which didn’t feature Bun B on the track. Alternatively  it featured Pimp C’s friend Mitchell Queen. Bun and his  friend Jalon Jackson had their own group called P.A. Militia. The two  groups joined forces and formed the group 4 Black Ministers.

Queen and Jackson they later left the group leaving Pimp C and Bun B so they decided to return  to UGK. The demo Pimp C recorded with Mitchell Queen, Underground King, attracted the attention of an independent label in Houston called Bigtyme Records. They then released an extended play titled The Southern Way.

The release of this record attracted the attention of Jive Records. While recording their debut album, Too Hard to Swallow, many of the songs had content too explicit for the album, so Bigtyme Records released an extended play titled Banned before the album was released, including all the songs that were too explicit for Too Hard to Swallow.  The song “Pocket Full of Stones” became the first UGK song to get major airplay throughout the United States. Their second album, Super Tight…, followed in 1994. Their third album, Ridin’ Dirty, peaked at number 2 on the R&B Charts in 1996, and at number 15 on the Billboard 200. After releasing their fourth studio album, Dirty Money, Pimp C got sentenced to jail.
