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.
