Bun B's "Trill OG" earns 5 Mics from The Source
The Source magazine has lost a lot of credibility from me in recent years, however a 5 Mic album is still a special feat for any artist. Most recently Bun B recieved this honor for his album "Trill OG". This album is a classic even if based on the UGK and Tupac collab alone. That's not it though. Drake delivers 2 timeless hooks and a verse where he boasts, "Drizzy Drake man, young Sweet Jones". And of course Bun B did his first DJ Premier track properly. He and Slim Thug provide something for the slab on the instant Texas anthem, Ridin Slow.
Like most other recent albums, this too has an unusual amount of features, but the Port Arthur native held his own against each guest. Bun B recently said "It's time for Texas to get back on top." He's leading by example I see.
