Bun B: 'Ugk Album Is On The Way'
Rapper BUN B is to release at least one more UGK album - despite the passing of his longtime rap collaborator PIMP C late last year (07). Pimp C, real name Chad Butler, died in his sleep in a Los Angeles hotel on 13 December (07), aged 33. His death was ruled an accident - the result of a pre-existing condition he had of sleep apnoea, combined with an accidental overdose of prescription codeine. And although his UGK partner is no longer around to share in the duo's success, Bun B is keen to keep their group name alive with a follow-up to 2007's Underground Kingz LP. He tells Complex.com, "We're still putting together this last UGK record too, because there's a lot of music that we've already recorded for it. I think that album itself is going to be a little bit weird."
