Congratulations to Rap-A-Lot Records
recording artist Bun B for his latest release, Trill OG.
In the upcoming issue of The Source.

Bun B is the first artist to receive this honor in over 5 years.

VIA
The Source magazine



Although we congratulate Bun B for becoming member of the 5 Mic club.
This smells more like a PR stunt too boost sales for the Source magazine.
They got the bloggers buzzing right and left...
As far as credibility goes,
they lost that when they crowned
Lil Kim’s The Naked Truth 5 Mics.
So they got nothing to loose,right?

Anyway, back to Bun B.
