For as much as Freddie puts on for Pimp C, it’s good to see another one of the young upstarts show that same respect for Bun. As I’ve praised him, I’ve also been critical of his some of his output before. Still, I would never discredit what he’s accomplished, playing the role of voice and ambassador for the South when the region had no voice and few outlets. And for him continuing to embrace new artists daily, showing them how to navigate through the shark waters of the industry is testament of his nobility. UGK’s music helped to shape my generation of fans and, from the sounds of this track, Cole’s too.

And he’s surely just as capable as ‘Clef when we’re talking presidential potential.
