Hot 97 Issues An Apology For Confusing Bun B With Pimp C

Hot 97’s Summer Jam was full of surprises but a standout was the station not being able to tell Bun B from Pimp C. On Sunday night a member of the station’s social media team mistook Bun B for his late UGK partner Pimp C, who passed away back in 2007.

The original tweet, which has since been deleted, simply read: “Underground Kings! Pimp C just came out with #MeganRyte” and included video footage of Bun hitting the stage. Bun was a special guest for Ryte’s closing Summer Jam set alongside Slim Thug and Paul Wall to perform the Houston classic “Still Tippin.”

Here’s the station’s apology.

Close @hot97 but no cigar…thanks to @meganryte @djenuff and @oldmanebro for having us!
