|Long before Houston rap came to define the sound of the Dirty South, UGK (the Underground Kingz), along with the Geto Boys, were holdin' it down strong for H-Town. While the duo of Bun B and Pimp C never achieved major cross-over success--spitting woozy gangsta tales a few too many years before mainstream radio was prepared for them--they gained a loyal fanbase and the respect of their fellow MCs (chief among them Jay-Z, who featured UGK on his classic track "Big Pimpin'").|
|After a brief separation marked by prison time for Pimp C and solo albums by both, UGK came back strong on UNDERGROUND KINGZ, a sprawling dripped-and-draped Dirty South block-rocker. A veritable who's-who from across the entire hip-hop spectrum pay their respects here, including Talib Kweli, Dizzee Rascal, Three 6 Mafia, T.I., and Big Daddy Kane. While glittery guest lists are a dime a dozen in hip-hop, the breadth and diversity of those on board here is proof positive that everybody wants to be down with the Kingz.|

- 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Still Ridin' Dirty,' which samples the ominous piano chords from Scarface's 'The Fix,' is a deliciously cold-blooded anthem."
- "On the raunchy 'Like That' and the funk-driven 'The Game Belongs to Me,' UGK show enough swagger to rightfully claim their throne." -- Grade: B
- "It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to compare Houston's UGK to Outcast..."
