"UGK Records: Carrying The Torch For Pimp C"

"Raised in Port Arthur on UGK classics, DJ B-DO initially joined the rap game as a DJ in high school. A one-stop-shop for music, B-DO raps, produces, and engineers. Both his production and lyrical skills are demonstrated on Grind Hard, a selection off of UGK's first album. Im one of Pimp's secret weapons. He had a production company called the 808 Boyz with me, Pimp, Avery, and Below, B-DO continues. When Pimp passed we were working on many projects. Me and T.O.E. were working on a project called Da Underdawgz. We were working on the UGK Posse project with everyone. We're still working on everything now. While still constructing Pimp's visionary Underdawgz album, B-DO is searching for solid ground as a solo artist. He states, UGK is all family. Everybody's collectively getting everything together. We got our project basically finished. We're just trying to create situations for ourselves with some majors. Aint nothing stopped. Pimp wouldn't want us to stop."

"Residents of the same city, T.O.E. and Pimp C met in the streets of Port Arthur and quickly became tight. Pimp put me on this rap music thing, T.O.E. begins, I grew up on UGK. If you wasn't listening to UGK out here, then you really didn't know what was happening. Along with Pimp C and B-DO, T.O.E. was recently working on a group project called Da Underdawgz. The album was close to completion when Pimp passed and T.O.E. and B-DO are left to finish the project devoid of their mentor and business partners direction. Although his physical presence is no longer with us, Pimp C will forever live in the lyrics he left behind. Da Underdawgz project will include several Pimp C verses as well as his groups solo tracks. T.O.E. adds, We're still in the lab continuing our things that we got going. We're doing everything we'd be doing if he was still here. We check on his family and kids, making sure everything's good. Me and Bun still have a great relationship. We want to keep on going with it cause that's what we know he'd want us to do. It's what we got to do." - Ozone Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.



Hailing from Port Arthur, Texas, B-DO & T.O.E, known as "Da Underdawgz", are on the way into the mainstream market. The two teamed up with Port Arthur legend Pimp C in 2007, which eventually solidified them as artists in the UGK Records click. The duo's first song with Pimp C, "Grind Hard", produced by B-DO, landed them a spot on the highly successful UGK self titled double album "Underground Kingz".
