Rapper has threatened to sue the designers behind a line of T-shirts bearing his likeness and that of his late bandmate .

The hip-hop star was alerted to the merchandise via a fan on Twitter.com, who sent Bun B a link to the black and white top bearing the images of the UGK pals next to the words "Trillionaire Boys Club", making use of the slang made famous by the Texas duo.

But Bun B had no idea his face was being used to sell the clothing range and he's vowed to take legal action against the manufacturers.

After viewing the link, he wrote on his Twitter page, "Unless there's a contract with me/estate (of Pimp C), you're looking at a lawsuit." Pimp C died in December 2007.
