The year 2021 will come in on Friday morning with a brand new project from Texas rap legend Bun B. One half of the highly-influential southern duo known as UGK is uniting with fellow Houston native LE$ for Distant.
The upcoming 6-track EP will hit all streaming platforms and digital retailers on January 1. Back in May, producer Dave Sitek invited Bun B and LE$ to his 1700-acre Sonic Ranch in West Texas where they recorded the soon-to-be-released effort.
Previously, LE$ worked with other southern Hip Hop artists like New Orleans’s Curren$y and Houston’s Slim Thug. The rhymer referred to as @steakxshrimp on social media just dropped his Dios, Vol. 1 album on November 27.
Bun B’s extensive musical catalog includes the solo studio LPs Trill, II Trill, Trill OG, Trill OG: The Epilogue, and Return of the Trill. His days as part of UGK with Pimp C produced classic bodies of work like Ridin’ Dirty and Underground Kingz.
