from Trill O.G. (Rap-A-Lot, 2010)

Another day, another leaked track off of Trill O.G.. This one is the long-awaited collab between Bun and DJ Premier. Next to the Bun/Pimp/2Pac track, this is probably one of the tracks off the album that I was looking forward to hearing the most.

…and, well, it’s okay. Not bad or terrible, just okay.

To me, the pairing of Bun and Primo just doesn’t seem “right.” Bun’s rapping is on point and Primo’s beat is technically sound (if somewhat bland), but the combination just doesn’t grab me. “Let ‘Em Know” might be one of those tracks that I have to let marinate a little more before I’m able to appreciate it.

The Pimp C drops were a nice touch though.

Props to the DGB fam for the track.

RELATED: Noz has some words about the track and is pretty much on point.
