When Pimp C unexpectedly passed away last December, some doubted whether his UGK partner-in-rhyme Bun B would continue his recording career. Instead of quitting, however, the King of the Trill is coping with his partner’s loss by going back into the studio to record his sophomore solo album, II Trill. On the first single, That’s Gangsta, the feature work from Sean Kingston will most likely get a mixed reaction from fans. Regardless, Bun shows off his street veteran status by explaining precisely what a “trill gangsta” is and doesn’t let teen sensation Kingston overstep his boundaries. Using a beat courtesy of JR Rotem, Gangsta is the first step in Bun’s master plan to grab ahold of the UGK movement. As Pimp looks down and listens to this one, he should be very proud of his compadre.
