One thing is certain, UGK will forever exist in the DNA of hip-hop. They were not only the voice of the streets, but the voice of a generation who experienced many of the disparities, injustice, and struggle they rapped about in their music.

Check out this classic video clip via WSHH, of the late Chad "Pimp C” Butler explaining how his parter in rhyme Bun B influenced him when they were growing up. The late rapper said in reference to Bun B, “In the streets this was my older brother, in the studio I was his older brother.”

Pimp C was none to hold his tongue, as you’ll hear in the video. He had his way of saying things and you just had to respect it. The relationship that was formed between those two men (UGK) resonates in everything that I try to be for my brothers, and the few men I consider my closest friends. Good friends are hard to come by, so never hesitate to express love to those who matter to you.
