Bun-B, 'II Trill' (Rap-a-Lot/Asylum)

7
II Trill
Critical Mass
Label: Rap-A-Lot/Asylum

by Will Dukes

Legendary Houston fixture Bun B has a flair for Southern-fried folksiness and lyrics that are as poignantly evocative as they are salaciously entertaining. On this sequel to 2005's Trill, the erstwhile UGK member captures his region's playful charm ("Pop It 4 Pimp") while revealing his thoughtful side, via politically charged gems ("Get Cha Issue") and a benediction for partner Pimp C, who died last winter. The strip-club anthems are reliably present. But Bun combines swagger with substance without losing a step. Now, that's edutainment.
