Bun B

Trill OG (Rap-a-Lot 4 Life)

Bun B didn't get to be an underground king by delegating authority. When BB's production partner J. Prince goes to "Chuuch!" with the blessing of late UGK scepter Pimp C on the Trill OG opener, he rolls out a red carpet intro for MC du jour Drake. Neither does the producer's hydraulic R&B sit well. T-Pain's PlayStation chorus on "Trillionaire" goes bust next, while "Put It Down" slicks Southern soul with more video-game vox at the expense of the previously announced big D. When Bun eventually solos on "That's a Song," it is finally. Trill, the Port Arthur rapper's '05 solo bow, rode just as many cameos, and by II Trill three years later, they began to overtake the ride. Twista & Bluesman Ceddy St. Louis hybrid a blues toaster bringing out the best of BB, and fellow H-town boss Slim Thug cruises "Ridin' Slow." B boasting "I Git Down 4 Mine" rides nobody shotgun and again shoots straighter for it, same as "Snow Money" and "Let 'Em Know." Time for a solo joint.
