Bun B Reacts To Late Pimp C Slander; Aims To Defend “Legacy”

Bun B has made it obvious that he will never put up with any Pimp C defamations, with as much energy as he likes to see his late partner in rhyme honored and remembered by the general public. On Friday, January 5, the rapper from Houston addressed the issue on his Instagram page. It’s obvious that the CEO of Trill Burgers isn’t putting up with this new round of what he perceives to be disrespect towards the late UGK great, even though he didn’t name the perpetrator. He wrote, alluding to Pimp C’s real name, Chad Butler,

“Please let Chad rest in peace,”

“Y’all doing way too much out here right now. Leave that man’s hard earned and well-deserved legacy the fuck alone.”

Bun B may be referring to music entrepreneur Greg Taylor, who claimed in a recent interview with The Art of Dialogue on Tuesday, January 2, that Pimp C hesitated before joining the controversial Jay-Z hit, “Big Pimpin’.” Taylor described speaking with Dame Dash over the speakerphone during the interview, which was released on Tuesday, January 2, when he offered to write the Texas couple a $1 million check so they could work with Jay. Instantly, an overjoyed Taylor brought Pimp into the conversation. Pimp then continued to criticize Jigga for his prior conflicts with 2Pac, recommending that they instead donate the funds to Afeni Shakur, the late rapper’s mother.

Taylor attested to the fact that Jay was on the phone and heard Pimp C criticizing him.

“I called Pimp on the phone like, ‘Yo Pimp’ […] I got a million-dollar check for you and all we wanted was a $100,000,”

“He was like, ‘Who’s that with?’ I said, Roc-A-Fella. He was like, ‘Ain’t that over there with JAY-Z.’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He was like, ‘Man, tell him to take that check and give it to 2Pac momma. He gonna be stealing all my shit.’”

“I was like, ‘What?!’ I hated that I called him on speakerphone, so I jumped up to click it, and it was another guy standing next to Dame.”

Nevertheless, “Big Pimpin'” is still UGK’s best-performing single as lead and featured artist, and it’s the only one of theirs to reach the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, despite Pimp C’s reservations. Making the decision to hop on “Big Pimpin” paid off as the jam went on to become a big hit, peaking at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and topping the Rhythmic Top 40 chart. This helped catapult Jay-Z’s fourth studio album, Vol. 3: Life and Times of S. Carter, to triple platinum status.
