Bun B’s New Album Is On The Way
After the release of his new book, Bun B's Rap Coloring & Activity Book, Houston rap legend Bun B has plans to release a new album, The Epilogue, on November 12.
According to a press release sent out today, Bun's new project will consist of unreleased songs from 2010's Trill O.G. with guest appearances from artists such as 2Chainz, Rick Ross, Kirko Bangz, Big K.R.I.T., Raekwon, Z-Ro and Devin The Dude, among others.
"I sat down with my long time business partner and Rap-A-Lot CEO James Prince to review the music that we had and quickly came up with an outstanding track list." Bun said in a statement. "The Epilogue is the perfect opportunity to release some great material to the fans and a proper final chapter for the trill-ogy. Good music is timeless!"
The lastest album will serve as a bookmark to Bun's famed "Trill-ogy" that started with 2005's Trill, continuing through 2008's II Trill, and finishing up with 2010's Trill OG. However, Bun B reveals in a Rolling Stone interview today why he isn't calling the album, "Trill Epilogue." Bun feels the word is being co-opted by worlds that don't necessarily under the original meaning of the word. ]
When asked if the word was being misrepresented Bun told Rolling Stone, "I wouldn't say misrepresented, but people tried to co-opt it, use it and define it in a way that they feel it represents them.And I can understand that, because when you're fighting to be trill, you're fighting to really claim your identity, really show who you are. But when we started the thing coming from the streets of Port Arthur, Texas, there was a definite concrete definition as to what being trill was and what it represented. As far as trill is concerned, as far as I'm concerned, as far as anyone else should be concerned, that original definition is what trill is. So as far as people trying to make it 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."
