Bun B Announces New Album, Speaks On Unreleased Pimp C Material

blame it on Shake October 4, 2013

Back in August, we told y’all Bun B was planning a new album before the year’s end. Now more details have finally surfaced. On top of the Rap Coloring and Activity Book he put out last month, the UGK rapper plans on dropping The Epilogue on November 12th. An album that will feature unreleased music recording during the Trill O.G. (2010) sessions featuring 2 Chainz and Rick Ross (“Fire“), Big K.R.I.T., Raekwon, Devin the Dude, Z-Ro, Kirko Bangz and others. Says Bun (via rr):

It’s a lot of good music that either didn’t fit the format of the last album or that we decided to save for another project. 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. 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.

Bun also spoke with Rolling Stone about the upcoming album, today’s usage of the term Trill, performing with the Houston Symphony and reveals he has no control over his UGK brethren’s unreleased material.

Well, I don’t have any of the material. One of the biggest misconceptions is that I’m in possession of Pimp C beats and Pimp C vocals. The estate controls everything, so any verses or beats or whatever that are still around are in the control of the estate. I know [Pimp C’s] wife is putting together a project right now with Juicy J, I think, but she has all of that stuff.

    Leftovers huh? Well the last album was horrible so forgive me if I don’t jump out of my seat…. This should be mediocre at best. Bro just ain’t got it without the Pimp. I mean shit at least have some interesting features. I can tell you now that the tracks with Devin & Z-Ro will be garbage with Kirko likely crooning the hook. Bun has a horrible beat selection. I mean you ain’t gonna throw any tracks together with Spitta, Gibbs or Dom. Ain’t nobody wanna hear a feature with Rick Ross from 3 years ago. The “Fire” track is weak. C’mon step your game up… This is 1/2 UGK we’re talking about. Forgive me for having high standards and expectations. They coined Country Rap Tunes….so get back to it.
