UGK rapper Bun B has set an April 29 release date for his first release since his UGK partner Pimp C died late last year. The Rap-A-Lot/Asylum set "II Trill" is led by the single "That's Gangsta" featuring Sean Kingston, and produced by JR Rotem.

Pimp C is featured on the project, as are Lupe Fiasco, Lil Wayne, David Banner, Rick Ross, Mya, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, Webbie, Mike Jones, 8 Ball and MJG, Z-Ro, Junior Reid and Paul Wall's new group Expensive Taste, which includes Travis Barker and Skinhead Rob.

Producers who contributed to "II Trill" include Mr. Lee, Scott Storch, Jazze Pha, Bigg Tyme, Black Out Movement, Khalil and Clinton Sparks.

"II Trill" is the follow-up to 2005's "Trill," which reached No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and has sold 563,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The momentum from that project carried over into UGK's "Underground Kingz," which debuted last summer at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.

Bun B has partnered with Microsoft Zune for his spring promo tour, which hits Fayetteville, S.C., tomorrow (Feb. 29). The rapper is keeping fans abreast of his life on the road via his own Zune page at Zune.net/BunB.
