Long before Chamillionaire was "Ridin' Dirty"(which was questionably changed to simply "Ridin'" when it made radio waves) on the charts, the Underground Kingz were ridin' dirtier than anyone else in the game; and to this day, this is still one of the grimiest records to come from the Dirty South. This is arguably UGK's greatest album(although Dirty Money is also a classic album), and was quite a few years before UGK were first exposed to the mainstream with Hova's "Big Pimpin'."

Some people new to the game probably think that Bun B, who makes a guest appearance on seemingly every Southern rapper's album, is some new cat who's trying to make waves in the underground. While I can see why they'd think this(Bun B is always hungry when he raps, leading one to believe he's trying to make an impact on the industry - despite the fact he already has made a significant one), Bun B has been in the biz for well over a decade, alongside his partner in rhyme(although, 'in crime' maybe more appropriate for Pimp C than it is for most), Pimp C. Together, they're the Underground Kingz, who identify themselves by the acronym of UGK. When they first came into the game, the South was obscure; now that it's blown up(especially their native land of Texas), one would think that UGK would get better publicity. Unfortunately the Kingz' publicity still doesn't compare to their skills, and only true heads have been able to check out their undeniably dope music.

Hailing from Port Author, they may not be Houstonians, but they still possess the love of flossin', and grindin', as well as slow hypnotic beats, and equally entrancing flows. On Ridin' Dirty, UGK provide one of the most revered music to ever come from the South; and for good reason.

UGK RIDIN DIRTY is one of the best rap albums of all time. Since POCKET FULL OF STONES on the MENACE II SOCIETY soundtrack came out in 1991 I have been a true PIMP C and BUM B SWISHER SWEET SMOKIN supporter. This album jams from start to finish . ONE DAY and PINKY RING ARE THE TOP 2 SONGS although every other song is just as good. I like the way they use live instruments with droppin bass and super crisp lyrics. UGK has been on several No Limit releases and No Limit should be honored to have them. I am lookin straight forward to DIRTY MONEY it was supposed to release back in April but it was pushed back until today 10-26-99 Pick it up I am sure it will be TIGHT but I dont think anything can outdo RIDIN DIRTY. KEEP IT TIGHT UGK AND I GOT YOU IN THE CD CHANGER 24-7. KEEP SMOKIN---TO THE ORIGINAL DOWN SOUTH HUSTLERS !!!!!

U.G.K.'s 1996 album "Ridin' Dirty" is a great showcase of Texas hip hop that would prove very influential. Rappers Pimp C and Bun B were already two albums deep when they dropped this one, and in my opinion it's the best album they've ever released. "Ridin' Dirty" is an album that's centered around simple yet very appealing production. The laidback grooves are bass-heavy and funky, but without the synths, horns, and extra instrumentation you might see on a g-funk album of this era. They're rolling beats meant for top-down cruising and chilling, and nine of the album's thirteen tracks are five minutes or longer. Most songs are pretty hooky, and the choruses are either rapped or delivered by a female singer, this can add or take away from the given song on "Ridin' Dirty." Former Rap-A-Lot in-house producer N.O. Joe is very involved here, and he's one of the South's finest producers ever. I don't think anyone would ever call Pimp C and Bun B lyrical geniuses, but for the most part what they lack in pure lyricism they make up for in style and character. Their tales of crime, violence, and women or their talk of cars and materialism are not out of the ordinary for a gangsta rap record at all. However, they both have very distinctive deliveries and unique drawls and accents that could not be mistaken for anyone but Texas natives. They have good flows and chemistry, working very well together. "Ridin' Dirty" has a few truly classic cuts, and the rest of the songs are pretty good, there's only a very few that I don't really like, so it's actually a pretty consistent work. I don't believe it's a classic on the level of some of Scarface or Geto Boys' work, but it's one of the finest albums to come from the hot Houston scene of the mid-90s.Read more ›

Like the title mentions, I don't like southern music. There are a few exceptions though. I love hiphop (mostly up-north and east coast style). However, Bun B is one of the NASTIEST on the mic. I love these guys albums. Murder is a classic beatwise and lyrically. One Day relates to me seeing I have lost close friends to the game. Diamonds and Wood is a nice song to sit back and chill to. Touched is a raw song. 3 in da mornin' is a nice song as well. I love everything about UGK and all their albums. Don't sleep on Bun B's flow and Pimp C's beats any more!!!!!!!!!!
