Bun B, Rap Superhero, Feeds The Needy... And What Else?
Bun B is many things: Beyond-influential rapper, college professor, entrepreneur and trillman (totally just made that word up). But above all else, he's long been recognized as a decent, caring and wise person.
It's why any time his name is added in the tagline of anything good or worthwhile, it's always met with a "Yeah, that makes sense." (The opposite of how that works with Waka Flocka.) Which is why it was no surprise at all when the requisite PR email blast went out announcing that, for a second year in a row, he had teamed up with Boost Mobile to run a food drive to benefit the Houston Food Bank.
In addition to simply offering you an opportunity to feel good about yourself, he's also offering two free tickets to his show at Warehouse Live this Saturday to anyone who donates five or more cans of food. We recommend Rosarita's Refried Beans; those hoes are delicious.
Now, seeing as how Bun B is evidently intent on curing the world's ills, we sent out a mass email/text to a whole host of rappers, regular readers, Facebookers, homeless guys and Kroger's cashiers to see what hip-hop ailments he could lend his hand to next.
Check Kanye's Ego
Actually, this one we're on the opposite side of. Kanye without his ego is like Dirk Diggler without his dong; both would be little more than average without them. Besides, Kanye has made four of the 20 best rap albums of the last decade. We'd be absolutely okay with him barging into our house during dinner only to slap the spoon out of son's mouth and tell him that there's no Santa Claus.
The Skinny Jeans Avalanche
Blecch. Again, we'll take the other side here too. Skinny jeans are cool. They just are. Sorry.
Fix The Texans' Secondary
The Texans will likely finish the year out under .500. That's the same Texans team that people were picking as a dark-horse contender for the AFC championship game as recently as the second week OF THIS SEASON.
