Bun B To Be Honored With "Bun B Day" In Houston, Texas

The UGK member will be given his own day in the Southern city.

Houston, Texas’ Mayor Annise Parker is set to declare Tuesday, August 30th as “Bun B Day.”

During a public ceremony taking place at 1:30 p.m. at Houston’s City Hall, the 38-year-old will be honored with his own day for his contributions to both Hip Hop and the local community.

Bun, whose real name is Bernard Freeman, rose to prominence as one-half of UGK alongside Pimp C. He most recently released his third solo album, Trill O.G., last year.

    nicki minaj principal for a day, r kelly leads a parade, now this dude gets his own day? His music and subject matter does not deserve to be honored with a 'day', regardless of what he does to 'help' his own community. Of course the simple minded readers here whose only criteria for being honored is a good beat don't know any better. He collabs with and cosigns for every poisonous artist out there, throws an occasional 'revolutionary' shot at the establishment or gives out a turkey for thankstaking, and we look the other way and ignore the big picture.

      Preach brother, I agree. I'm not saying anything is wrong with the music because it should be entertainment just that! But I have to agree with ya, honoring him with a "day" for being a rapper rapping about pimping, murdering, and showboating is not the way to build up a generation. Yeah like you said he throws a political or social bone ever album or two and we celebrate. And we wonder why we so far behind! SMH

    Forreal. Bun B is straightup. He deserves his own day. But I think they should make Bun B Day "UGK Day" as well.
