Bun B’s Album ‘Trill OG’ Deemed Classic With The Source’s 5 Mic Rating

Bun BThe Source Magazine announced this week that they have awarded Texas rap legend Bun B’s latest album, Trill OG, the “classic” label with their coveted 5 Mic rating.

The album, which is reviewed in their fall August/September “Back-to-School” issue, is one of several albums reviewed in the new issue.

The mag calls it “an authentic hip-hop album.”

“The Mindsquad of the new Source Magazine and TheSource.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, the mag’s publisher.

Other albums reviewed in the new issue include Eminem’s Recovery, Rick Ross’ Teflon Don, Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, Fat Joe’s The Darkside Vol.1, Drake’s 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.

Bun’s 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, and the first in over five years to receive the honor.

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.

The mag says the announcement marks hip-hop’s return to dominance, with Bun B the leading the pack.
