Among the hip-hop facts revealed by Bun B were that UGK and Three 6 Mafia were in talks to merge and form a supergroup. According to Bun, the two groups were set to become The Underground Mafia and “Sippin’ on Some Syrup” was going to be their first song.
Unfortunately for hip-hop fans, the group fell through after Pimp C “ended up getting locked up,” the rapper said. Bun B also revealed that UGK’s “Int’l Player’s Anthem” originally featured Three 6 Mafia but “that version wasn’t able to cleared.”
