Bun B: On the Road with the Trill OG During Gumball 3000

Bun B is a busy man. A quick search of this publication finds him supporting the local music scene, doing his duties as an associate professor at Rice University, rallying over social issues and even receiving an official proclamation from the mayor of Houston. He is active in the local food-truck scene, is an expert user of social media and now hosts his own television spot.

But as much as he loves his city and its people, sports teams, music and food...sometimes a guy just has to get away. Reboot. Refresh. For the past two years, Bun has used the Gumball 3000 road rally as his retreat.
