Bun B "Trill OG: The Epilogue"
Trill OG: The Epilogue is Bun B's fourth solo album. It is also the final chapter for the Trill-ogy and mainly consisting of left-over tracks from Bun B's last album. "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", Bun B says.
Usually when you listen to "Lost Tracks" you hear why they were lost or didn't fit last projects, but that's not the case with this album. It still sounds fresh, but has that signature trill feel to it. It indeed is a perfect album to close the Trill-ogy series.
There's a lot of features. Artists like Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Big KRIT, Raekwon, Redman and Kirko Bangz contributed their verses. Pimp C can be heard on two tracks.
The whole album comes down to a tribute to The Legendary DJ Screw (featuring ESG, C-Note, Lil O, Trae Tha Truth, Z-Ro, Big Hawk) produced by Big E who did phenomenal job. The Epilogue is just what you can expect from Bun B.

Yo Gotti "I Am"
Yo Gotti has been around since his 2003 debut album, but he never really hit the lottery with his albums. He has one hit single once in a while and disappears. I Am is his sixth album and it finally seems like an album he has been trying to make for the past decade.
There's not too many rappers who has done their own thing since the beginning, stayed true to theirselves and kept it going for 10 years. Yo Gotti is definitely one of them. Songs like LeBron James and Act Right are perfect examples of that.
Overall this album might go to my personal Top 5 of the year. Everything from production to subject matter to Yo Gotti's flow - and especially his flow - are on point and even more than that.
