Before performing at a show in Seattle this past weekend, Bun B stopped by the local Sea-town radio station KUBE 93.3 to serve up some insights about Hip Hop, politics, and future album titles.

When asked about the Southern Hip Hop backlash that generated a couple years back, Bun B took an upfront approach. Theres always gonna be haters to every situation, you know what Im saying? I dont think anybody, anywhere took anything personal. You cant please everybody, so theres gonna be some people that are gonna object to some things that people are doing. You gotta have thick skin to get in this game anyway. You gonna be worried or upset about the first thing somebody says about you or where youre from, then you probably dont need to be in this game.

Bun B also explained his decision to jump on the Change remix by Kidz in The Hall and Talib Kweli, as before he was indifferent on Barack Obama. I weighed both options and came to this conclusion, and its not just purely for me but for people as well. I see so many different people energized and starting to care about politics and the political world now because of a person like Obama, as well as Hillary. I give them both credit, a lot of credit with what theyve done to energize the youth. But we wanna keep them energized past the election because the work doesnt stop in November, the work starts.

Though II Trill has been pushed back to May 20th, Bun Bs already got a couple ideas for his next solo projects. Its gonna go Trill OG, and the one after that is TrillionaireHopefully Ill still have a solo career [then].

Bun Bs II Trill will be released May 20th on Rap-A-Lot/Asylum Records.
