Hot 97 Apologizes (and Places Blame) For Confusing Bun B and Pimp C


Bun B and Pimp C are certainly associated with each other, as the two members of the Hip Hop duo UGK.

The big difference between the rappers is that Bun B is alive whereas Pimp C, unfortunately, hasn't been for more than ten years.

Which was why this mix up on Hot 97's Twitter page during their Summer Jam concert yesterday was not good.

As you can see, Bun B called Hot 97 out with a "close but no cigar" for calling him by his late partner's name.

Hot 97 apologized for the gaffe.


During Ebro in The Morning today Ebro pointed the dirty finger at Luis, who runs Hot 97 Twitter page.

"Bun B comes out to perform Big Pimpin'. Well, Luis decides to put that up on Hot 97's Twitter. Who did you say it was," Ebro asks Luis, who sheepishly cops to Tweeting the Pimp C's name.

Power 105 host Charlamagne Tha God was pleased to give his Hot 97 rivals his Donkey of The Day.
