Yesterday, the city of Houston, TX honored Bun B by officially proclaiming August 30, 2011 “Bun B Day”. This video is of Houston mayor Annise Parker presenting Bun with the honor.
I’ve always said that Bun B is the most respected man in Hip-Hop and this further proves it. If you ever have the opportunity to speak with Bun in any capacity, please jump at the chance. I guarantee you will leave having learned something.
Congrats to Bun B who’s hometown of Houston, Texas just granted him with his very own official day. Houston’s mayor declared yesterday that August 30th will from now officially be known as Bun B Day. Bun has not only done a lot for the southern music movement, but for his community and city as well, and we definitely fucks with that. The honor is well earned and deserved for a true Underground King…. this day’s for you Bun. Fucks with.
For those that don’t know, Houston rappers are very active in the community. J Dawg and the rest of the BHO regularly volunteer at shelters on the northside & Trae is constantly giving away school supplies. I remember when him & Chamillionaire were handing out ice, first aid kits & other various things after Hurricane Ike hit.
It’s good to see yet another rapper get the recognition they deserve.
