UGK put the south on the map in 1988 with their first album release The Southern Way. Since then, the group has maintained a presence in the rap world with albums, mixtapes, indie releases and cameos on numerous prominent artists’ tracks. In 2000, they made a high-profile appearance on Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin.” In 2005, Bun B released his first solo album Trill. The gold-certified CD debuted at #6 on the Hot 200 Billboard Charts and peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip Hop Album Chart. Pimp C released his solo album Pimpalation in summer 2006. The solo effort debuted at #3 on the Top 200 and at #1 on the Hip-Hop and R&B Charts according to Billboard.
