Texas group consisting of rappers Pimp C and Bun B. The name stands for Underground Kingz.
UGK (short for Underground Kingz) were a hip-hop duo from Port Arthur, Texas, USA. Formed in 1987 by long-time friends Chad "Pimp C" Butler and Bernard "Bun B" Freeman, they were highly respected by many of their peers, due in part to their longevity and their entrenchment in hip-hop's underground. UGK, from Port Arthur, TX, the neighboring city to Beaumont, TX, released their first album in 1988.
