Bun B Announces New Album
Bun B has been kept a busy man this year thanks to his wildly popular ‘Rap Coloring and Activity Book,’ but the UGK legend is taking it “back to straight hip-hop,” to quote Slim Shady, with his newly-announced album, ‘The Epilogue,’ arriving Nov. 12.
The LP will serve as the fourth and final chapter to Bun’s ‘Trill’ series, which includes 2005’s ‘Trill,’ 2008’s ‘II Trill’ and what many call his magnum opus, 2010’s ‘Trill O.G.’ The project will comprise of unreleased material recorded during the ‘Trill O.G.’ sessions, and feature appearances from Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Raekwon, Big K.R.I.T., Kirko Bangz, Z-Ro and Devin The Dude.
On not including the word ‘Trill’ in the title, Bun told Rolling Stone:
As far as people trying to make [trill] mean what they are, they need to try and be more of what trill already means instead of trying to make trill mean something else. In other words, they need to step their trill up. If you don’t wanna represent trill as it is, then go make up your own word.
And the rap world collectively rejoices.
