UGK were inducted Sunday into the Museum of the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame in their native, Port Arthur, TX.
“We’re one and the same,” Bun said of his relationship to the city. “It is very hard to separate me from Port Arthur and Port Arthur from me and that’s a good thing.”
“Chad loved Port Arthur so much,” said his mother, Weslyn “Mama Wes” Monroe. “This is a tremendous thing today.”
The late Pimp C‘s sophomore album cover was released today. The name of the album is The Naked Soul of Sweet James Jones. Pimp was a member of UGK along with Bun B.
It was revealed that the album will be released via Rap-A-Lot Records with an unknown time of the release. Bun put the album together with unused vocals from Pimp C. He died in late 2007 due to an accidental overdose of Codeine combined with a sleep disorder called Sleep Apnea.
Bun spoke with XXL Magazine and here’s what he had to say:
“We had enough vocals, But it wasn’t just about taking whatever vocals I had available; it was about constructing songs,” Bun told XXL Mag earlier this year. “It wasn’t about just throwing all the Pimp C I had out there. I had to really try to make an album.”
