Biography[]

Until recently, there were only a few MC's from Texas who would get any sort of shine outside the borders of their nation-sized republic. Few meaning three. One of course would be Scarface, who with his group the Geto Boys laid the inital foundation for the phenomenon that is southern rap. Two would have to be Devin the Dude, a laid back artist who crossed over to the edge of the mainstream with his work with Dr. Dre, De La Soul and The Roots. And three would have to be UGK, the group that inspired an entire region to take the rap game seriously. Before UGK hit the scene in the early 90's, the pickings were slim for folks looking for authentic hip-hop in the south. The southeast was overtaken with party rockin' booty music, Texas was know for the Geto Boys almost exclusively and the bounce scene in Louisiana hadn't yet been noticed nationally. Hailing from Port Arthur, Texas, the Underground Kings—UGK for short—brought the major labels to the state back in the summer of 1991. Rappers Bun B and Pimp C—who also handled the production for the duo and set all new standards for beatmaking in the south—had been dabbling in the rap game in other groups throughout the 80’s. However when they clicked up, they created a sound so powerful that the entire music industry had to listen.
