 The Source crowns Bun B’s “Trill OG” a Hip-Hop Classic.
topic by KyleEshna - 08-04-2010, 09:38 AM

New York (August 4th, 2010) - The Source Magazine (The Source - Welcome to The Source), 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.

Log onto The Source - Welcome to The Source to make your choice on which album you think deserved the coveted 5 mic rating and pick up a copy of the forthcoming Issue of the Source Magazine, on newsstands nationwide August 17th. Tune into BET’s 106th and Park today [August 4th] to watch the new cover revealed in front of the livest studio audience and see behind the scenes footage from Rosci and Terrence's fashion shoot with the Source.

im from houston, i think he has elite skill as a rapper when HE WANTS TO but doesnt always show it, i love UGK, think they have 2 classics (ridin dirty, super tight), BUT bun b doesnt deserve no 5 mics. im sorry, i just know better. the roots got shafted AGAIN, never getting proper acclaim for having arguably the best discography for any group in hip hop history. yes any group, they are up there. source mag is toilet paper now...
