For the youngins who may not be accustomed to DJ Screw’s legacy, know that he’s chargeable for these “chopped & screwed” tracks.
Bun B has long since put in the legwork, earning himself a place among hip-hop’s pantheon legends. Now, the UGK icon has stopped by The Breakfast Club to chop it up with DJ Envy and Angela Yee, as Charlamagne was not present for this one. Eventually, Bun opens up about his upcoming album, breaking down his mindset surrounding the project. “I’m speaking to my age group,” explains Bun, “the people that been with me since the beginning. The people who was eighteen when I was eighteen.” He also explains that priorities have since changed, and will be addressed accordingly. Like many rappers, Bun will not shy away from going political on this go-around.
He also talks about his wedding, a rare subject in the hip-hop game. “My wedding was dope,” says Bun. “I spent way too much money though…We fed like 450 people. I had a big wedding.” Given the fact that he got hitched shortly after “Big Pimpin,” he made it clear that wifey was getting that Vera Wang dress. “I’m only going to do this once, so I want to do it right,” he says, with a smile. It’s always nice to see a solid couple in hip-hop, and hearing Bun talk about renewing his vows is enough to warm the hearts any given cynic.
It’s especially comical to hear DJ Envy and Bun B lament the high price flowers. “I’m in the wrong business,” jokes Bun. “I went to Deadmau5’s wedding, I never seen that many flowers in my life. Son had at least ten thousand roses.”
To this day Jay Z’s “Big Pimpin'” featuring UGK still bangs when it comes on at any given time. The track comes f Jay’s 1999 album Vol. 3… Life and Times S. Carter and although the song seems like a flawless effort, there was actually some second-guessing behind the collaboration.
Too Short recently chatted with BET and spilled some tea on what really went on with the song. Apparently, Pimp C (who died in 2007) was conflicted with teaming up with Jay since he had beef with Tupac. “Turns out, Pimp C’s] only logic for not wanting to be on that song was all about Tupac…He said ‘I’m not fuckin’ with nobody that didn’t fuck with Tupac,’” Short says in the video below.
Even though UGK (Pimp C & Bun B) never worked with Tupac they ran in the same circles and had the same friends so the same respect was on the table. “I was one the people who was sayin’, ‘Man, just do it,’” Short adds, explaining how Pimp C even kept his distance for the video shoot. “He missed the fuckin’ video shoot in Trinidad during Carnival. Who the fuck is going to be, like, ‘I’m not going with JAY-Z and Dame Dash to Carnival?…Pimp C.’”
