Houston-based, Port Arthur-born rapper Bun B has been taking the slow road in terms of musical output since 2010’s Trill OG
, the third installment in a tight trilogy (see what he did there?) of solo albums. Since then, the influential Southern Rap stalwart has kept fans waiting, with the exception of 2013’s Trill OG: The Epilogue
, which was more a collection of unreleased odds and ends than a new album proper, for new work. But you can do that when you’ve reached legend status in hip-hop, something Bun B achieved way back in the 1990s as one half of the iconic duo UGK (with The late Pimp C).
Last month, Bun ended the wait with the release of Return of the Trill, an excellent album that features assists from some of the brightest stars in hip-hop and beyond. Now he is back out on the road, and you have a chance to catch the OG in downtown SA. Heads and initiates alike are advised to take heed.
$21, Thu Sept 27, 8pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 677-9453, therockboxsa.com.
