Weslyn “Mama Wes” Monroe, the mother of UGK’s Pimp C, reportedly passed away this morning.
The news has come out thanks to a picture taken by Pimp C’s partner in UGK, Bun B, who added the following caption in tribute:
Thanks to everyone that has sent prayers and condolences. She was a great woman. Nurture us from boys to men and made us strong enough to handle this industry. She was the one that kept us going when we didn’t wanna go anymore. She was the backbone of UGK, the definition of loyalty, the personification of unconditional love and the essence of what being Trill really meant. She’s finally reunited with her son. God bless you both. RIP Mama Wes. You gave everything to make us Underground Kings.
Gumbumper, would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Mama Wes, and the entire UGK family!
