Hip-Hop Rumors: Bun B To Run For Mayor Of Houston?


I thought Bun B was already the mayor of H-Town, but it looks like he may be formalizing this notion. Not exactly. But a web blog theorized that Bun should run for the office of the town and they made a lot of sense. But, the fact of the matter is Bun ain’t ready because he allegedly has “too many skeletons in the closet.” But, word on everything….he should run!

Bun B is really cool with Annise Parker, the present mayor of Houston I’m thinking by next year, he’s going to run, which is when his supporters want him to enter the political arena. Bun has already been a fine representative for the culture in that he’s a professor and also intelligent voice.

    I could see him running for mayor alot of people don’t know Bun B is not only one of the souths greatest rappers, but also well educated with a college background.
    Don’t see him winning tho,Texas is a Republican state. Them old, rich white folks ain’t gonna let some rapper run one of their most industrial cities, but I bet Bun would at least get SOME votes.

    • Maybe run on smaller level?

      • BulldogCG

        yea seems he would have to get at least a council seat or something to gain a little political credibility, definitely think he is capable though.

      • Havoc Wreaka III

        Arnold Swhnegger ran and became Governor with no back round… oh yeah he was from post Nazi Austria

      • Da Ledgendary

        His competition was Gary Coleman, a porn star, and some incompetent politician. The pickings wasn’t exactly robust in Cali at the time.

      • Havoc Wreaka III

        Wrong!!! He lost and then won it back off of an impeachment.. Do your research

      • BulldogCG

        I feel you, that is why I mentioned he was definitely capable when you look at some of the people that have held public office. However, that being said, Bun B, while we love him, does not quite have the exposure of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

      • Havoc Wreaka III

        That’s true, but he should try at some kind of office; he’s an intelligent guy and should use ir at some point

      • BulldogCG

        No doubt, we need more strong minded positive brothers in every facet of life. I often wish more guys that had exposure went that route or even into education, like he did. Actions are powerful and Bun walk the walk.

      • Sean Taylor

        And he was also married to a Kennedy.

        Bun B has a pocket full of stones.

      • Immortal

        I think if Bun started on lower level it would give him more exposure to the crowds that don’t know him, the crowds the normal candidates never see, and give him some cred in those niche communities. People know him as Bun B, it would be a damn good shake up if the state knew him as Rep Benard Freeman.

      • Getatme

        Reminds of that J Cole joint “Bun B for president”….Bun should run in H-town and David Banner should run in the Sip.

      • johnblacksad

        Mayor of Port Athur, TX?

    • Casor_G

      Houston is a liberal city and we don’t want Bun B for mayor. sounds cool, but is not a good idea

      • Immortal

        why not? other than some of his past, what makes him a bad candidate?

      • James S

        He has no experience and Houston is a massive city..but then again my guess is most mayors are idiots who only got the job due to cash and connections, never happen tho

      • Immortal

        A lot of people take jobs where they have no experience in them, but excel at them because they don’t know and are not afraid to acknowledge it. Bun would fall into that category, and surround himself with those who do have a strong background in finance, proper law enforcement, border security and so on. He cannot do it alone, and he would probably be the most honest power broker you’d know.

    His opponent would just play the video for Big Pimpin, when his friends are pouring champagne all over women.

  • ZUBU

    I got mad respect for the Bun, but I just can’t see a repuke city electing (i assume) a liberal brotha. Who happens to also be a rapper, who has rapped about some things his oppnents would use against him. Even though what does is just entertain, nothing more nothing less.
    Also someone correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t Houston like 4th or 5th largest city in the nation population wise? Those old white oil barons are not gonna want a young brotha running their city.

    Dont do it

  • acapwn

    This’ll never happen but if I stayed in Houston, I’d consider votin for him after seein what he has to bring to the table. Them people ain’t gonna let him in though because of the music. Even though Schwarzenegger did some wild shit in his movies, they gave him a pass.

    • ddsrerer

      U seriously comparing music to acting though? Cmon, lets be real here. Im sure Arnold was wild but comparing MOVIE ROLES to rappers who claimed it’s really their life, alot of them have criminal backgrounds that backs it up as well as their behavior. Music is not the same as acting, that argument is so old.

      • acapwn

        It’s still entertainment. You can believe in it if you want to. People aren’t actually killing other people while the shit is being recorded just like people aren’t actually killing other people in a movie. You can be as ‘real’ as you want and it don’t change that one bit.

    Terrible….

  • This will never happen…especially in a state as conservative as Texas. Jay Z could become maor of N.Y. before Bun B took over Houston.

  • thats not gonna happen,but Port Arthur TX maybe

  • JamalFromGhostwriter

    Crackers aint votin for Bun B. Get real.

    • david3528

      You’re right. I would never vote for Bun B.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        but you’ll always be a irrelevant nobody – you don’t matter

      • david3528

        Apparently grammar doesn’t matter either.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        you got nothing to say – so you just prove your stupid

      • david3528

        Wow. I’m stupid? It’s “you’re” not “your”. Just like it was supposed to be “an irrelevant” and not “a irrelevant”. I was just irritated at the cracker comment. You should keep YOUR (correctly used) illiterate ass out of it and go take an English class by some cracker.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        you dumbass – I will Never take advice from you on spelling, or anything else

      • Guest

        Yes, you should spell things wrong on purpose from now on with bad grammar just to piss him off… -.-

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        I care nothing about his irrelevant stupid little feelings – or yours

      • Guest

        lol must’ve hurt your feelings! You just cant grasp the fact that having proper grammar has nothing to do with feelings idiot… not having proper grammar just make you look like an idiot… idiot.

    You suckas eat this up just like when Obama said change is coming.

    Still waiting…..

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      yeah, Obama fooled Us – he’s Not a Negro – he’s a first generation immigrant – more civil rights laws were taken away under him than any President since We won them

      • ISTADUMHI772

        those rights were gone no matter who the president was or is. the reason the “let” obama become president, and “let” is the right term because if they didn’t want him to become pres. they woulda pulled some al gore florida miscount type shit, is because next time a black, hispanic, etc runs for pres. they’ll just bring up obamas presidency. same reason all the poloticians and news outlets are blaming him for the economy. *NEWS FLASH* the economy was already fucced up when bush was in office. so homey u the fool fallin for that bulls*it

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        nah – you wrong – and I ALWAYS explain why in my points – but your garbage was too long, and had so many Different wrong things in it – so I won’t bother – but I will say – EVERYTHING you said is wrong – and everyone knows the ecomony was fucked up when he got it – we all were living you fool

  • Dadon850

    Codeine syrup for everybody!! Smh

  • i’mreloaded!

    I had a chance to meet Bun in Atlanta in 2008 and he is by far the coolest, and most humble celebrity I ever met. You wouldn’t even think he was famous because he carried on conversations with his fans about real issues besides music. He even paid for everyone’s food at the Waffle House on Old National. Dude is really for the people and I think he would be good for the city of Houston. If not mayor, some form of political advisor capacity since he is out in Houston with the people. But we gotta keep in mind, Texas is Bush country and they not to keen on hiring Black officials for office.

    • Obi Won

      Hell from what u said, especially a black official that can handle attention and genuinely helps others.
