ToDo ToDay: Bun B, Odonis Odonis, and Passover at BLT Steak
For rap star Bun B, “trill” (that is, to be true and real) is a way of life. As UGK, he and fellow Port Arthur, Texas, native Pimp C have treated it as a tao since the release of their 1992 debut, Too Hard to Swallow. Now one of hip-hop’s wise elder statesmen (he’s teaching a class at Houston’s Rice University on the subject), Bun B remains a supremely respected relic among the genre’s new generation. His rolling success has culminated in the Trillest Tour, which will bring the bass-heavy, trunk-rattling brutal honesty of his music to the Howard Theatre stage.
