SXSW Last Night: Birthday Boy Bun B & Erykah Badu Team Up For Noisey.com Launch Party
Bun B celebrated his 38th birthday last night at the launch of Vice magazine's new music site, Noisey.com, at Austin warehouse district club Kiss & Fly.
The Trill O.G. brought along his Trillionaires band for a set that included a performance by DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown, AKA Miss Erykah Badu. The Dallas native treated the crowd with her soulful vocals by singing "Soldier" from 2008's New Amerykah Part One (4th World War), and wishing a happy birthday to the Houston rap legend.
Bun B, wearing a T-shirt in support of the earthquake victims in Japan, closed with the crowd favorite "International Players Anthem" and a cover of Morris Day & the Time's "The Bird" that had the fans doing the Harlem shuffle on the dance floor.
