Bun B's Birthday: "Murder" Still Kills

Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Each week, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: Slim Thug, Lil O, E.S.G., Delo, hasHBrown, Medicine Girl, Mac, Chane, more.

Not Invited: Marcus

This Week's Prompt: King Bun B's birthday is today. What is the greatest Bun B verse of all time?


Slim Thug: "Murder." He murdered it.


RoderickVonn: Man, it's so many. "Pocket Full of Stones" [and] "Big Pimpin'" are probably what I would pick from.


Eskabel: "Murder."


Chane: I would have to say his verse on the song "Murder" off that Ridin' Dirty album. That was the song that made me a fan; first UGK song I'd ever heard.


D-Risha: Bun B's verse on "Murder" is his greatest verse ever. I still wanna know who Marcus* is, cause he shitted on him.

*This is a common mistake. Near the very end of the verse, Bun spouts, "You can't see me, mark-ass."


Medicine Girl: One of my favorite Bun B verses is the one on "Paranoid" with Talib Kweli. He's just too dope to name them all.


Delo: Shall we go through this again? "Murder."


E.S.G.: "Murder" or "Diamonds and Wood."


Mac: Every verse off Ridin' Dirty. That was that raw shit. "Pinky Ring," "Good Stuff," "Ridin' Dirty," "Murder."


Lil O: Bun's verse on "Murder." In my opinion, that verse made the East Coast realize the South could really spit.

His verse on Master P's "Break Em Off Something" isn't just one of Buns illest, but one of Raps illest ever.

"my nigga that's how these G's be/ we three/ Me, C and Master P sippin on Gin and Kiwi/ Fuck poppin in yo CD/ bitch we poppin in the clip"

And don't forget his verse on Ludacris' "Stick Em Up"

"Big Pimpin" no question there is no verse and flow like Bun B's part on Big Pimpin' which also happens to beTimbaland's finest beat, probably the greatest verse on a song that commercial, another good Biun B verse that many haven't heard is the one on the remix of Pronto by Snoop Dogg and Soulja Boy

His guest verse on Scarface's "Down With Us" is worth an honorable mention.

What about that verse he did on Yesterday on PSK-13 album Born Bad:"Her baby son done turned the game outCouldn't take the shame out her eyes, all the lies all the excusesWhen your mama's cryin its all uselessBoy you aint ruthless, you just yo mama's babyWho hopin and prayin that maybe things could be like yesterday"

And in terms of rhyme and technique Murder could indeed be the best verse in RAP History, forget Houston

His own track record aside, Bun's verse on "Murder" may be the best verse in Houston rap history.
