The “King of the Trill” hooks up with one of the hottest streetwear labels around. It was only a matter of time before Bun B and BeenTrill would cross paths. The UGK legend announces that he has a collabo in the works with BeenTrill and shared the news with Complex. “I’m big in the lifestyle world. One of the freshest guys in the game,” he said.
Bun claims to be the originator of “Trill” but sees the brand as “adding something” to the movement. Many have questioned how the rapper feels about the line by Virgil Abloh, Heron Preston and Matt Williams using the word “Trill” but Bun says that it’s all love. “I love what they’re doing with the brand…We’re working on a collaboration that answers all these questions and lets everybody know who stands where,” he explains.
BeenTrill has been a favorite of rappers of late, especially Kanye West. Travis Scott and Chief Keef have both worked on their own collabo lines as well.
