Bun B is preparing to take his Trill Burgers on the road. The Underground Kingz legend will descend on LL COOL J’s inaugural Rock The Bells Festival in Queens on August 6 with the Trill Mealz Food Court, the first ever Hip Hop food court. But ahead of the event, Bun cooked up a Trill burger for National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar James Harden, who couldn’t get enough.
On Monday (July 25), Bun B shared an Instagram video of Harden trying a Trill burger. By the time Bun got his camera rolling, Harden had just one bite left.
“Hey Bun, you got something special, big dog,” Harden said in the clip. “That shit fire! Fire.” Bun then panned the camera over to Lil Baby and said, “We gotta get Baby a burger.” He added in the caption, “My lil bro @jharden13 asked for @trillburgers and by the time i got the camera out he was done!
“@lilbaby wanted a @trillburgers but with no cheese. I’ll make sure bring his made to order next time! Thanks to #NoIGTwin and @coachk44 for the link! @darylmorey leta set up the Philly pop up!”

Bun B launched Trill Burgers in Houston last August, which specializes in the thin, crispy-edged smashburgers popularized in California. He’s hoping to expand his reach with the Rock The Bells appearance.
The Trill Mealz Food Court will host culinary items from Nas’ Sweet Chick restaurant, E-40’s Goon With A Spoon, Jadakiss and Styles P’s Juices For Life, Mia X’s Mama Mia foods, Ghostface Killah’s Killah Koffee and, of course, his Trill Burgers.
During a recent interview with HipHopDX, Bun B revealed some of the famous names behind the brands will be on-site to mingle with fans.
“I know Mia X is going to be in the building for her Whip Dem Pots,” he said. “I know Styles and Jada are going to actually be around that day as well. We’re still trying to figure out commitments on Ghostface as well as E-40 and Nas. But we are going to have at least three of the people whose brands are represented in the building that night.”
The Rock The Bells Festival boasts performances from a roster of legendary artists, including LL COOL J, Ice Cube, Lil Kim, Fat Joe and Digable Planets.
