Bun B Says He Does Not Control Pimp C's Unreleased Material
Bun B talks about Pimp C's unreleased material, the definition of trill and an upcoming performance with the Houston Symphony.
Bun B is set to release The Epilogue November 12, slated to be the final installment of his Trill-ogy series. The release follows 2005's Trill, 2008's II Trill and 2010's Trill OG.
Bun B recently spoke about his Trill-ogy series and the status of his label, Too Trill Entertainment. "I'm still going to continue making music as an artist," Bun B said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "Also as a CEO, I'm putting together my label, Too Trill Entertainment. When we came up with the idea of The Trill-Ogy, it was just a play on words more so than anything. It was always only meant to represent three albums. I don't have to name my album Trill anything for people to know that it is trill and I am trill. But it did work for those three albums."
During the interview, Bun B also spoke about unreleased Pimp C material.
"Well, I don't have any of the material," Bun B said. "One of the biggest misconceptions is that I'm in possession of Pimp C beats and Pimp C vocals. The estate controls everything, so any verses or beats or whatever that are still around are in the control of the estate. I know [Pimp C's] wife is putting together a project right now with Juicy J, I think, but she has all of that stuff."
In August, Juicy J confirmed that he is producing a new album featuring unreleased Pimp C material.

As a member of UGK, along with Pimp C, Bun B released several albums, including 1992's Too Hard To Swallow, 1994's Super Tight, 1996's Ridin' Dirty, 2001's Dirty Money, 2007's Underground Kingz and 2009's UGK 4 Life.
Pimp C passed away in 2007. He was 33.
Bun B To Perform With Houston Symphony
During his recent Rolling Stone interview, Bun B also said that he is slated to perform with the Houston Symphony in November.
"Well, we're also performing with the Houston Symphony on November 14," Bun B said. "The first rapper ever to perform with them. It's the 100-year anniversary of the Houston Symphony and the 100-year anniversary of the Anti-Defamation League, so they're partnering together for a concert presentation honoring Houston heroes of civil rights and people who have stood against injustice, against hatred and against violence, specifically in the city of Houston. So they wanted to put together a musical accompaniment, and they thought it was the perfect time to incorporate a Hip Hop element and my name came first on the list. I wasn't going to let them get to the second name."
