Referring to his Pimp C reference while guest-appearing on Bun B’s Trill O.G. lead single, “Put It Down”, Drake said he viewed the duo as uncles.
“I just feel that I’m a huge Pimp supporter,” explained Drake, who sends the MC an R.I.P. at the end of his verse. “I’m a huge Pimp fan. I feel like I’m extended UGK family. Bun and Pimp are like uncles, dads to me. They’re G’s. When I’m around them , I feel like I do around my uncles. They’re still the coldest cats in the world, but Bun makes me feel warm inside he’s a legend. His presence, it’s like me calling myself Young Bun B, when I call myself Young Sweet Jones. It’s just seeing a bit of them in myself; by no means did I mean to offend. I heard it was somebody upset about me making that reference.
I think it was somebody in his family or something. But I never mean any disrespect. I love rap. Young Sweet Jones is just a little nickname. People really started calling me that before I ever said it in a rap song. I used to rep for Houston so hard. They just be like, ‘Man, that’s Young Sweet Jones right there.’ I just put it in a song. And it sounded dope.” http://www.hiphopstarship.com/
