EDITORS’ NOTES

Trust one of the godfathers of Houston rap to deliver a crash course in aging gracefully. On his fifth solo album, Bun B delves deep into the sounds of Texas trill—think syrupy organs, trunk-rattling bass, and hard-knocks narratives—that he and the late Pimp C helped pioneer as UGK. But here he gets assists from the next generation of down-South rappers who almost certainly grew up on his music—including rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T., who contributes half the album’s beats. Bun’s storytelling peaks with “Blood on the Dash,” a tense back-and-forth between a driver and a police officer that’s thoughtful without being preachy.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Above average, nothing but the best to be expected from a Lyrical master. Maintaining and Evolving is his career continues into the future. The rap game needs Pioneers like yourself. Much love and respect.

Trillfully Balanced

This project,top to bottom, is classic Bun B and those who are featured are merely accenting not taking anything from the Trill-master. Weaving masterful stories and giving us truths throughout. Thanks Brother Bun, it's what the culture and the world over has needed!
