    Not only is UGK's one of the greatest rap groups of all time, but Underground Kingz: UGK 4 Life is probably be one of my favorite hip-hop albums over the last decade. One of the reason I love the album is that it's a shame that we still lost a great friend of the game, Pimp C, but UGK delivered a phenomenal blend of R&B even with a darker tone and a lyrical experience that many of fansNot only is UGK's one of the greatest rap groups of all time, but Underground Kingz: UGK 4 Life is probably be one of my favorite hip-hop albums over the last decade. One of the reason I love the album is that it's a shame that we still lost a great friend of the game, Pimp C, but UGK delivered a phenomenal blend of R&B even with a darker tone and a lyrical experience that many of fans envisioned through their career. It's hard to believe that 2013 marks the 5th anniversary of UGK's final album and I still got teary eyed over "International Players Anthem." If you dig through your collection with a whole bunch of mixtapes or though your albums covers, then which UGK song would you still considered was your favorite? Mine's was Jay-Z "Big Pimpin" and Three 6 Mafia's "Sippin on some Sizzurp." But hip-hop will truly never die. I hope in the future, I hope they gonna make a UGK greatest hits anytime soon. But UGK forever! R.I.P. Pimp C. Expand

  1. Bun B, doesn't wallow in the macabre. Instead, we get UGK basics: songs about drugs, sex and flossing, flavored with thudding, no–nonsense beats.

    UGK 4 Life is a fitting capper to this Texas duo's storied career--nothing groundbreaking, just funky, rough-hewn, celebratory tracks.
  3. Excessive, sexual, and catchy, UGK has crafted the most definitive template for the southern rap record. Sadly, it'll be their last.
