Two years later, Bun B united with Pimp C for the release of their fifth and last studio album together, the self-titled Underground Kingz. After the tragic death of Pimp C in the early 2008, Bun B was left with no other choice but to return to a solo career. His second solo album, II Trill, came to light that same year with his third, Trill O.G., following in 2010. As for his fourth studio album, Trill 4 Life, it is scheduled for a 2013 release.
