Jive recording artist UGK returns after a long hiatus with their long awaited seventh album "U.G.K. Underground Kingz." Group members Bun B and Pimp C return with a double album that features twenty new tracks.

The album lists production by UGK's own Pimp C, as well as Atlanta hit makers Jazzy Pha and Lil Jon. New York super producer Swizz Beats adds some East Coast flavor to the double package. Scarface produced 3 tracks. Pimp C's production is filled with the live instruments that always distinguishes the groups original sound. The album features a fleet of guests that includes Rick Ross, Slim Thug, Sleepy Brown, Three Six Mafia, Willy D and others. On the Marley Marl's produced "H-Town" Bun B and Pimp C team up with New York’s veterans Kool G Rap and Big Daddy Kane.

The first single will be the Jazzy Pha's produced "Stop & Go." The b-side will feature the songs "2 Kind Of B*****s" and “Chrome Plated Woman."

UGK put the South on the map in 1988 with their first album release "The Southern Way." Since then, the group has maintained a presence in the rap world with albums, mixtapes, indi releases and cameos on numerous prominent artists' tracks. In 2000, they made a high-profile appearance on Jay-Z "Big Pimpin." In 2005, Bun B released his first solo album "Trill." The CD debuted at # 6 on the Hot 200 Billboard Charts, peeked at # 1 on Billboard Top R&B/Hip Hop album Chart and has been certified gold. Pimp C released his solo album "Pimpalation" in Summer 2006.
