On Thursday, reports began to swirl that archives containing UGK material had been lost due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. The claims stemmed from an Instagram post from Bun B’s wife Queenie which stated Pimp C’s son was stuck in flood waters at his grandmother’s house.

Pimp C’s widow, Chinara Butler shared the post which featured the caption, “#repost all archives of UGK that was left is now gone,” leading many to take it as confirmation. But now, Butler denies the reports. When asked by The Fader for clarification, a spokesperson for Butler said it wasn’t true that UGK’s entire back catalog was lost.

“Mrs. Butler’s memorabilia and archive items are safe and in secured locations. We can not confirm the information being spoken on Chad Jr’s behalf because Chinara does not know what items were at the residence in question, nor has she spoken with him to confirm the loss and what it entailed.”

The statement went on to read, “All Chinara wanted to do in posting the information in question was share the address in the post and use her resources to send help. She was able to do that, and is now focused on being part of the solution to bring Texas back stronger than ever.”
