About Bun B

Along with UGK bandmate Pimp C, rapper Bun B put Port Arthur, Texas, on the hip-hop map with a legendary three-decade-plus career. • Bun B formed UGK—short for Underground Kingz—with his friend Pimp C in 1987. The duo released five albums prior to Pimp C’s death in December 2007. • With UGK paused while Pimp C was behind bars, Bun B released his solo debut, Trill, in 2005. The album reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart and went gold. • Released just four months before Pimp C’s death, UGK’s Underground Kingz album hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 following the success of the OutKast collaboration “Int’l Players Anthem.” • Bun B’s third solo album, 2010’s Trill O.G., was the first LP in nearly five years to receive a perfect “five mics” rating from The Source. • In 2011, Bun B became a course instructor at Rice University, teaching “Religious Studies 331: Religion and Hip-Hop Culture.” • He teamed with producer Statik Selektah in 2019 to make TrillStatik, an album recorded in real-time on social media. Guests included Method Man, Talib Kweli, and Fat Joe. • As a prolific and sought-after guest, Bun B has appeared on chart-topping albums by JAY-Z, Juvenile, Usher, and Lil Wayne.
