Bun B Rocks The Vote With Hip-Hop Drive-In Concert
This past Thursday (October 29th), Houston rapper Bun B and R&B group The Suffers held a 24-Hour Voting Kick-Off Concert at NRG Park in Houston. The event was partnered with MOVE Texas, an organization that is committed to encouraging and motivating the youth vote.
Attendees had to show proof of voting in order to get in, which was used to encourage people to vote if they had not already.
Harris County, where the event took place, had the highest voter turnout in the county’s history with over 1.4 million votes being cast by the end of Friday.
Bun B put on an unforgettable show
Voters were able to put in their votes throughout the day at the drive-in location within NRG Park, which was stopped at 10 p.m., so the concert was able to start. Bun B was the closing act for the event and performed hits like “Get Throwed” and “Draped Up”.
Bun B has always been for the people.
Back in July of this year, Bun B called out a former Houston police officer for allegedly posting a photo that compared African-Americans to monkeys. He spoke out through TMZ Live, explaining that the Houston Police Department was conducting an internal investigation to get to the bottom of the issue.
However, it was never confirmed if the police officer was fired, reassigned to a different position, or resigned from his position.
