The news was revealed Wednesday after Bun B’s wife Queenie shared an Instagram post stating Pimp C’s son was stranded in his grandmother’s house along with his wife and a 79-year-old neighbor. The post has since been deleted; however, Pimp C’s widow, Chinara Butler, reposted the message with Queenie’s update in the caption. It said Queenie was able to contact Pimp C’s son, Lil Chad, who said he was near an overflowing reservoir. Queenie also revealed that "all archives of UGK that was left is now gone."
Though the loss of UGK material is, no doubt, disappointing, Chinara was able to keep things in perspective: "Please be thankful for what you have. Do not complain about anything," she wrote.
Chinara's manager Cherrell Rene told Complex that her client has not had the opportunity to follow up with Lil Chad's situation since she posted the Instagram message; however, they assume he is fine as they have not received any more queries for help.
"I would like to also state on behalf of my client that she did not confirm the loss of UGK or Pimp C archives and memorabilia as outlets are reporting," Rene said via email. "Chinara simply shared a message in hopes of getting Chad Jr some assistance."
Both Chinara and Queenie have both used social media to bring attention to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Queenie has started a GoFundMe page that will benefit hurricane victims. Her husband, Bun B, is also organizing a massive telethon with Scooter Braun, who helped organize Ariana Grande’s Manchester benefit show earlier this year. The telethon is expected to air on four national networks on Sept. 12, according to Billboard.
