The 30 Biggest Criminal Trials in Rap History

13. The State of Texas v. Chad Butler (2002)

Crime: Violation of Probation Stemming From Aggravated Gun Assault
Verdict: Guilty
Sentence: Served three years at Terrell Unit in Texas.

The UGK producer/rapper was initially arrested for a gun assault charge after flashing a weapon in a shopping mall. But it wasn’t until 2002 that he found himself getting in major legal trouble, after failing to fulfill the requirements of his parole.

Pimp was sentenced to eight years, but was released after three. From 2002 to 2005, Bun B kept his name alive with a market-flooding guest verse run during the same period. During that time, an LP of unreleased recordings came out on Rap-A-Lot records.
