Legendary Rapper Bun B is Bouncing Back with a Solo Act Debuting at a Houston Rodeo!

Well, it looks like legendary rapper Bun B is officially a solo act. Bun B, whose real name is Bernard James Freeman, is best known as one half of the southern rap duo UGK, a group he formed in 1987 alongside Pimp C. UGK, which stood for Underground Kingz, had a number of hits in the 90's like "Diamonds and Wood", "Too Hard to Swallow" but they are most known for their chart topping single "International Players Anthem (I Choose You)".

Pimp C passed away in 2007 leaving Bun B with the decision to carry on the UGK legacy alone or strike out on his own. According to our friends at Click2Houston, the decision has been made!

"Bun B will make his solo debut at the Houston Rodeo on Friday, March 11, 2022, for Black Heritage Day.

His performance, known as Bun B’s H-Town Takeover, will include some of Houston’s most well-known rap icons, according to Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo officials in a news release Thursday.

“The rodeo can’t wait to bring Bun B and many of Houston’s most legendary rappers to the RodeoHouston stage in 2022,” said Rodeo President and CEO Chris Boleman. “Celebrating Black Heritage Day with many of our city’s own superstars should make for an epic night for Houstonians and Rodeo fans alike.”

Additional local artists who will join Bun B’s RodeoHouston’s 2022 performance will be announced in the coming months. Individual tickets for the March 11 performance will go on sale to the public in January 2022 at Ticket prices start at $20, plus a $4 convenience fee."

We look forward to great music coming from Bun B in the future!
