    New Bun-B Album Dubbed “Classic” by The Source

    Bun-B’s presence in Hip Hop is that of legend. Many younger fans may know him mainly for his most recent collaborations with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Drake and Wale, or a little further back, from the all-out assault campaign he ran back in 2004 to free his UGK brother from prison, the late Pimp C. But Bun has a resume that would rival that of any O.G. in the game, from Snoop Dogg, Too Short and Ice Cube to Chuck D, Kool G Rap and DJ Premier.

    Bun released his latest album, Trill O.G., to the world this past Tuesday. It’s his third album that follows up 2005s Trill and 2007s II Trill. The album has been receiving rave reviews all over the Hip Hop universe, but most notably, in the upcoming issue of The Source magazine, the Mind Squad awarded Bun’s latest effort with the coveted 5 Mics, labeling Trill O.G. a classic. The 5-Mic title was last given out 5 years ago to Lil Kim’s The Naked Truth.

    In a statement from the website for The Source, writer Sean Lynch says the following, “Congratulations to Rap-A-Lot Records recording artist Bun B for his latest release, Trill OG. In the upcoming issue of The Source, we reviewed albums from a list of Hip-Hop heavy hitters who each has recently released a stunning well-crafted body of work that has shaped the year’s best albums creatively, lyrically and production-wise. The artists albums’ that were rated in this issue were, Eminem [Recovery], Rick Ross [Teflon Don], Big Boi [Sir Lucious Left Foot - The Son of Chico Dusty], Fat Joe [The Darkside Vol.1], Drake [Thank Me Later] and The Roots [How I Got Over].”

    Trill O.G., with appearances by Drake, Yo Gotti, T-Pain, Slim Thug and the late Pimp C, is available in stores now. Fans can follow Bun-B on MySpace, Twitter and on his website at bunbonline.com.
