Pimp C’s sudden death from codeine overdose in 2007 forced Bun to go solo. Though the results haven’t always hit those early UGK highs, they’ve featured a broadening of his sound and some worthy collabs with the likes of Rick Ross, Raekwon and Big K.R.I.T. The best of his solo efforts is undoubtedly Trill O.G., which nabbed a perfect 5-mic rating in The Source, an honor only since awarded to Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. That he continues to be referenced by the likes of A$AP Rocky and Drake only further highlights the depth of his influence on hip-hop today.

Beyond music, Bun is pursuing the sort of moves only someone with unimpeachable cred can make, including publishing the coloring book (aptly titled Bun B’s Rap Coloring Book). But his most badass move of late? Acting as a guest lecturer at Rice in the School of the Humanities, lecturing on Hip-Hop and Religion. Amen.
