Pimp C has been gone for almost 15 years.
His legacy is as strong as ever.
However, something about that legacy isn't sitting right with his UGK bro Bun B.
Bun is sick of vultures and bootleggers using Pimp's image and not throwing some of their profits to his family.
“And I know a lot of people feel like they honor him with T-shirts and hats and candles and air fresheners and all of that, but you’re really just trying to bleed and leach off his legacy,” Bun explained. “If you’re not giving anything to his family, you’re trying to leach off his legacy and if the man was alive, who would have pulled up on you and you know that sh*t..
So everybody that’s out here thinking they’re showing love and they repping the city and all that sh*t, you can do that sh*t. Just don’t put that man face on no T-shirts. Don’t put that man face on anything. You don’t see me out here doing that sh*t. You know what I'm saying. You ain’t giving that man family no money, so don’t do that sh*t. I starting to see more of it, and I'm really getting bothered by it. We rep the South. And we didn't take anybody's intellectual property illegally. If we sampled somebody's music they got paid. So if y'all going to sample that man's likeness, his artwork, his music or his lyrics, pay that man's family.
Don’t call me talkin’ bout you wanna give me a T-shirt with Pimp on it. I don’t want no goddamn T-shirt with Chad on it!” he said. “If I wanted a T-shirt with Chad, I can have it made. I don’t need you to give it to me cause you think I’ma post it so you can sell a bunch of it and keep all the money and act like you really did something for that man. You ain’t do shit for that man."
