Earlier in the week, Pimp C's mother was reportedly hospitalized in Port Arthur, Texas with serious illness. Unfortunately, the late rapper's UGK partner Bun B has now confirmed that C's mother has passed away. 

Not much is known of the cause of her death, but Bun offered a photo and short eulogy to Mama Wes on Instagram today. View it below.

"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."

HNHH sends its condolences to the friends and family of Mama Wes.
