    Bun B and Prodigy - II Trill (Rap-A-Lot) and H.N.I.C., Pt. 2 (Voxonic)

    Thanks to sad coincidences, the latest albums from both Bun B and Prodigy -- not so much parallel narratives as subtle varieties of disturbance--stake out oddly similar territory in this weird year for hip-hop. One man has to go away; another has to...
