In other news Bun B is gearing up to drop a new album…‘The Epilogue.’ The LP is slated to drop just in time for Christmas on Nov. 12th on Rap-A-Lot Records.

Word has it, Bun’s new project will be a compilation of unreleased material from his 2010 ‘Trill O.G.’ album and on top of that will be the fourth and last installment in the Trill series.

Bun told Rap Radar of his new project, “It’s a lot of good music that either didn’t fit the format of the last album or that we decided to save for another project. I sat down with my long time business partner and Rap-A-Lot CEO James Prince to review the music that we had and quickly came up with an outstanding track list. ‘The Epilogue’ is the perfect opportunity to release some great material to the fans and a proper final chapter for the Trill-ogy. Good music is timeless.”

‘The Epilogue’ will include guest appearances from RaekwonBig K.R.I.T.Z-Ro and more.  The lead of single is a joint called ‘Fire’ featuring Rick Ross2 Chainz and dance-hall artist Serani.

Meanwhile, Bun B is still giving back to his community and has teamed up with the Houston Symphony for a special concert. The UGK legend will perform original songs that honor local civil rights activists for the Anti-Defamation League’s Houston in Concert Against Hate event.

On that topic, Bun sat down with HipHopDX and shared his thoughts saying, “[I’m] the first rapper ever to perform with them.  It’s the 100-year anniversary of the Houston Symphony and the 100-year anniversary of the Anti-Defamation League, so they’re partnering together for a concert presentation honoring Houston heroes of civil rights and people who have stood against injustice, against hatred and against violence.  So they wanted to put together a musical accompaniment, and they thought it was the perfect time to incorporate a hip-hop element and my name came first on the list.  I wasn’t going to let them get to the second name.”
