Bun B's wife states on Instagram that the UGK archive were lost to Hurricane Harvey, however Pimp C's window has confirmed that they are secure.
On Wednesday Bun B's wife Queenie posted to to Instagram that Pimp C's son, Lil Chad, was stranded in six feet of water at his grandma's house. Chad is ok, by the way, but what wasn't was the UGK archives, which Queenie addressed on IG saying:
191 Likes, 43 Comments - Chinara Butler (@chinarabutler) on Instagram: "@cherrellrene we @djhawkonline to help them with boat! @Regrann from @doughbeezy"
It was unclear what exactly was in the archive, bu UGK fans were very concerned considering they've been enjoying the occasional reconstructed Pimp C verse like the one on Big Boi's latest record Boomiverse.

Chinara Butler, Pimp C's window, has since come forward to confirm that not all of the UGK archive has been destroyed. A rep for Butler tells Fader that she reposted the message in order to spread the address and get Chad the help he needed. The rep went on to confirm:
“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.”
So, there's still some hope!
Bun B meanwhile, isn't lamenting any potential loss, he's busy collaborating with the group that organized the Arianna Grande Manchester benefit on a telethon to benefit those affected by the storm.
