Bun B has today returned with his first album in five years, Return of the Trill. The follow-up to 2013’s Trill OG: The Epilogue features a ton of guest appearances from artists like Lil Wayne, T.I., 2 Chainz, Slim Thug, Giggs, Gary Clark Jr., Leon Bridges, and Big K.R.I.T. (who also serves as producer on a number of tracks). Even Bun’s late UGK partner Pimp C shows up for a verse.
Perhaps the most attention grabbing collaboration, though, is the Run the Jewels-featuring “Myself”. Hearing a luminary like Bun B team up with an underground duo made good like EL-P and Killer Mike is something of a hip-hop fan’s dream, and the track amazingly lives up to those heavy expectations. Over a beat of sci-fi synths RTJ fans should be plenty comfortable with, the trio of rappers deliver sturdy, confident bars loaded with advice about having faith in yourself on the long climb to success.
