The Source Crowns Bun B’s “Trill OG” a Hip-Hop Classic

I was going to post this in the top 10 rappers thread, but thought I'd make a new thread instead.

Speaking of 5 mics, Bun B just received this distinction for his album Trill OG. Here's the press release from The Source.

Quote:
The Source Magazine(www.thesource.com), the leading publication of Hip-Hop music, culture, and politics today announced the crowning of a 5 mic rating in its fall “Back-to-School” issue [#240 August/September] to Rap-A-Lot Records recording artist Bun B for his latest release, Trill OG.

The upcoming issue of The Source reviews albums from a list of Hip-Hop heavy hitters who each has recently released a stunning well-crafted body of work that has shaped the year’s best albums creatively, lyrically and production-wise. “The Mindsquad of the new Source Magazine and Source.com recognized Bun B and his Rap-A-Lot label for an authentic Hip-Hop album from a respected artist that has paid his dues, perfected the art of story-telling in his music and contributed greatly to the streets and culture of the art form,” explains L.Londell McMillan publisher of The Source.

Artists reviewed in the new issue include Eminem [Recovery], Rick Ross [Teflon Don], Big Boi [Sir Lucious Left Foot - The Son of Chico Dusty], Fat Joe [The Darkside Vol.1], Drake [Thank Me Later] and The Roots [How I Got Over]. Each album went through meticulous review from the Source’s ‘Mind Squad’ across different categories that included originality, lyrical content, arrangement and production. Trill OG scored high enough to receive 5 mics, the holy grail of Hip-Hop ratings, granting it admission into an elite club of timeless musical compositions that span over 20 years. The album rating system has been a staple for the magazine in announcing which artists have put together the best album from start to finish. Bun B is the first artist to receive this honor in over 5 years.

The state of Hip-Hop music returns strong with these releases and The Source celebrates the return of Hip-Hop dominance. These artists have pushed the envelope, crafted chart topping music and are helping restore Hip-Hop’s dominance, with Bun B the leading the pack. Trill OG’s [5 mics] rating is something only a select few have received in the 22-year history of The Source.


Have you guys listened to the album? What you guys think??

Damn I'll have to check it out. First time I actually listened to Bun-B was his album "Trill". Definitely one of the few great rappers from his generation left.

that cd is crazzy good, but IMO the source has no credibility or common sense on cd ratings.
