Bun B Receives Official Day in Texas

Houston honors the UGK MC on August 29.

Bun B isn't just applauded by fellow musicians like Jay-Z, T.I. and Drake, the UGK veteran has the whole of Houston celebrating his contribution to his community. 

On August 29, Annise Parker the Mayor of Houston will declare Bun B Day in the Texas town with an official proclamation. 

"Bun is also known for giving back to the community and volunteering his time as well," local reporter Isiah Carey wrote on his blog. "Bun B is signed to the Houston based Rap-A-Lot Records and he follows in the foot steps of the record company's CEO James Prince in getting his own day.

Fan Note: If you'd like to see Bun B get his proclamation in person just show up to Houston's City Hall  Tuesday August 30th.  The honor will be given out at 1:30 pm.  The meeting is open to the public.  Don't be late!"
