The album has already received high praise from hip-hop magazine The Source.
Each album went through meticulous review from The Source's 'Mind Squad' across different categories that included originality, lyrical content, arrangement and production. Trill O.G. 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 O.G.'s [5 mics] rating is something only a select few have received in the 22-year history of The Source. (The Source)
Bun recently talked about putting together his latest Trill installment.
"Trill was definitely a rough album but a fun album to put together," he continued. "II Trill was a little bit different circumstances, dealing with the [death of Pimp C]. I'm not really sure that I gave that album everything I could. I don't think I had everything to give to that album at the time. It was still a great album; we made great music. I mean, we could do that in our sleep. But I'm not trying to do it in my sleep. I'm trying to be eyes wide open, fully focused. And I think we came back and accomplished that on Trill OG." (MTV)
