Summer Album Previews: UGK – Underground Kingz

    No other Southern dish can capture the smooth aroma of its region quite like Texas-raised rappers Pimp C and Bun-B, the former with his husky drawl and the latter with his menacing street-rhymes, coming together to heap a hefty serving of greasy grits torrented in a rich, family-farm cream.

    If the smoky poise of “”The Game Belongs to Me”” or guest-slathered BBQ of “”International Player’s Anthem”” is any indication, the pair’s sixth studio album and first double-disc could be the crowning moment of their remarkably stable careers – the two Southern gentlemen are joined by niche big-timers OutKast, Dizzee Rascal, Too $hort, Talib Kweli, Kool G Rap and Big Daddy Kane, with production smarts handled by Scarface, Swizz Beatz and Pimp C himself.
