The Godfather of hip-hop, Bun B, turns 39 today (March 19)!

First bursting onto the hip-hop scene in 1987 with partner in rhyme Pimp C, the Underground Kingz became a fixture of Houston rap. The tag team served up several classic albums before Pimp’s untimely death in 2007.

But Bun has kept it Trill in his homie’s memory, delivering solo albums and embracing rap’s youth. wishes Bun, the Trill OG, a very Happy Birthday! —XXL Staff
