UGK (short for Underground Kingz) was a hip-hop duo from Port Arthur, Texas formed in 1987 by long-time friends the late Chad "Pimp C" Butler and Bernard "Bun B" Freeman. They released their first album, Too Hard to Swallow in 1992, followed by several other albums charting on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. The group has also been featured on hit singles by other artists, such as on "Big Pimpin'" by Jay-Z and "Sippin' on Some Syrup" by Three 6 Mafia. On December 4, 2007, UGK member Pimp C was found dead in a hotel in Hollywood, California.[1] The duo also founded UGK Records.

History

In 1992, UGK was signed to Jive Records under a five-album contract, releasing their major label debut album Too Hard to Swallow[2]. While it featured several new recordings, it also featured several songs that had been culled from The Southern Way.[3] However, several songs that had been intended to be included on the album were excised at the last minute, apparently due to their overly explicit content. Five of these songs would surface two months before the release of Too Hard to Swallow, on an EP distributed by Bigtyme Recordz; appropriately enough, the EP was titled Banned. Jive Records is an American record label, owned by Sony BMG, and operates as a quarter of the Zomba Label Group. ... Too Hard to Swallow was the second album by southern hip-hop group UGK. Track listing 1. ... Southern Way is the debut album by UGK, released on cassette only in 1988. ...

Their second album, Super Tight, was released two years later, on August 30. Unlike their previous album, Super Tight managed to break into the Billboard Hot 200 and ultimately peaked at #95; their third album, Ridin' Dirty, peaked at #15.[4] Ridin' Dirty would also be UGK's last album for the time being, as they went on a five year hiatus not long afterward. Super Tight is the 3rd album from Houston based rap group UGK. It was released August 30, 1994. ... is the 242nd day of the year (243rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

It was released July 29, 1996 on Jive Records. ...


In the interim, UGK made a high-profile guest appearance on Jay-Z's 2000 smash hit "Big Pimpin'" and also appeared on Three 6 Mafia's hit "Sippin' on Some Syrup". Both of these collaborations greatly increased their reputation, and helped fuel anticipation for their next project[citation needed]. Jive Records failed to capitalize on this new-found interest in the duo, as their sixth album, 2001's Dirty Money, came and went with little fanfare. Jay-Z (aka the Jigga, HOV and Hova, born Shawn Carter on December 4, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York) is an African American rapper/hip hop artist and record label executive; one of the most popular and successful rappers of the late 1990s and early 2000s. ...

Further problems arose when Pimp C was incarcerated for an aggravated gun assault charge in 2002 [5]. Throughout the time of his incarceration, Bun B carried on the UGK name by making numerous guest appearances on songs by other artists, with every appearance either mentioning Pimp C or featuring a "Free Pimp C!" or "Free the Pimp" chant. Many of UGK's peers did the same, and mentioned Pimp C in their own songs with or without Bun B[6]. During this period, Jive Records released a Best of UGK album, as well as a Chopped & Screwed remix album [7]. As a result of Pimp C's incarceration, both members of UGK began solo careers out of necessity.

FYE: Gangsta Rap - Ridin' Dirty UGK / CD / 1996 (338 words)
UGK's third album, Ridin' Dirty, is their first to be released by a major label, which gives you some sort of indication of how far the group has gone in four short years.
UGK is just as hedonistic and materialistic as those rappers out on the West Coast, but they don't infuse their music with the deep funk of the Cali scene, nor do they revel in the buoyant bass of their Miami brethren.
If UGK doesn't really have something new to say, at least they have come up with an engaging way to say it -- the sound of their record is vibrant and direct, bringing you right into the thick of things.
