IT WENT DOWN!
Bun B Returns to the Stage
The President of the South Done Showed How It's Done

And real talk, the people really came out for him, and of course Pimp.



I ran out the back door at work round about 3:30 and hit the road to Houston. I expected the show to be big, but when I called Jeff Messina and he told me that the show had pre-sold more tickets than any hip-hop show ever at Warehouse Live, I knew shit was gonna get crazy.


Bun was in fine form. After short sets from a nice slice of the UGK Family - Cory Mo, MDDL FNGZ, Hezeleo, 17, etc - Bun B BLASTED onto a crowded stage and proceeded to rip through what seemed like every hit and feature he ever did in the past 15 years.


It's crazy cuz when you see the scene on stage (literally 250 people up there behind Bun) you'd think it would have been total chaos, but it wasn't. Everyone up there was there to hold down Bun, not just to be seen. Most of the folks up there were some of Houston's biggest and best artists, and I think every one of them got on the mic at one point or another.

The people really got their moneys worth. Trust.






Mama Wes - Pimp C's mother - was in the house. I can't imagine how she must feel, cuz while I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this show, one thing I kept thinking, and honestly getting a little angry about (I can't help this) was "Man, what if Pimp was up here on this stage too?"

It's still a mystery to me as to why UGK did so few shows. It's a moot point now and I am happy to say that I am one of the few people who got to see them multiple times. I should do a post someday about all the times I went to see UGK over the years. Like the time they played TSU in 1994 with Brand Nubian, The Odd Squad and Seeds of Soul. Or like when I went to see them in Baytown but the parking lot got shot up before the show could ever begin and I ended up ducking down the side of a bayou wall to keep out of range of all the bullets. That was probably 1993 or so.

Know'm talm bout?

DEZ! Check this y'all. Dez - one of our local graf/design legends - designed a new bottle for Mountain Dew. Reception happening for the man Feb. 20th, location TBA.

But here's the info. No, this blog IS NOT brought to you by Mountain Dew, but I'm proud of the man so lets take this quick pause for his cause. You don't have to like it, but you gotta respect it. (It's like Pimp C is speaking through me now! I say that a lot these days.)



Honestly the commercial is pretty bad ass. Hats off to the man DEZ!



Now back to our program.


Brother J from X-CLAN WAS IN THE HOUSE! He's recording the new X-Clan album in Houston right now with my man Zin.

This is a photo of Pimp C, DJ Screw and someone else. Can't see it all that well.


But I tried


And then these dudes


Stopped traffic.

Whew, what a night. The vibes were so right, the energy was electric, the sound was flawless, the flow was uninterrupted by any bullshit. It just went perfect and I hope Bun takes this show on the road. You should too.

Ever wonder why when Houston was at its peak there was never a Houston tour? I bet some of the big head motherfuckers who fucked that up two years ago would love to go do that now. Watch.

Anyway, Rest in Peace Pimp C. I don't personally believe the coroners report. I don't believe in Hollywood. I don't believe a lot of the shit that happens in this world. All I can say at this point is Rest in Peace Pimp, and Bun, I wanna watch you walk across that stage at the Grammy's tonight - hopefully early in the show so I don't have to watch all that other bullshit. But I already know how they do. Do they even show the rap award? I'll be watching.

Thanks Matt for giving me the heads up on this, I wouldn't have heard about it if it weren't for your blog. Great show! Loved how Bun let the crowd rap Pimp's verses. When he performed "High Life" and "Diamonds and Wood" that place came alive.

Peace out!!

What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. Head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.
