Bun B has shared his reaction to his new album, Trill OG, receiving a rare five mics rating from The Source magazine.
"For every album labeled a classic, there are dozens of others that people feel deserve the honor. So I realize that people now feel they have to place my album next to others that they feel were more impactful, and argue their case. With social networking being as prevalent as it is in our society, these arguments now take place in a very public arena, which in order to be heard, you often have to be very opinionated and abrasive to stand out. So people, while having no personal hate or malice towards me, will make very loud arguments about The Source's decision, and the loudest ones will probably get the most attention...Having said all this, it is with great honor and admiration that I humbly accept this esteemed declaration from the Source Magazine and it's staff for my album Trill OG, and for those that feel they need to sh*t on me to argue for another artist or album, don't worry. The Trill OGcan take it! UGK for life!" (Rap Radar)
