Bun B - Trill

 UGK’s career has had its share of ups and downs. Starting with their first major label release Too Hard To Swallow to their last collective effort, Dirty Money, UGK was held back due to the lack of respect from their label and rap fans outside of the South. It took a New York nigga to bring these boys out-to the mainstream that is. Not until Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin,” did Bun B and Pimp C get a taste of commercial success. When Pimp C was sent to prison, Bun B was left alone to carry on the legacy UGK has set for H-Town. In the process, Bun B took the industry by storm by being King Cameo in the ‘05. With his first solo release Trill (Asylum/Rap-A-Lot), Bun shows why every rapper in the industry had him on their wish list when it came to like up their features.
