Bun B/Kirko Bangz

When: Tue., April 8, 9 p.m. 2014

Rap icon, distinguished college lecturer and coloring book author, Bun B is a man of many talents. Focusing more on the rap portion of his career, Bun B’s rap tracks have a deep intensity and heaviness about them. A standard of Southern rap, his albums have been hailed as modern classics. His latest, Trill OG: The Epilogue, is a bombastic and boisterous album, akin to the kind of thing you’d hear being blasted out of an SUV rolling on 26-inch rims. Tracks like “Fire” feature the played-out rap sirens, sampled choirs and prominent snare drums lines we’ve been bombarded with for years now. There’s something under the surface of his songs that deserves a deeper look. In his guest lecture series at Rice University, where he teaches a class called Religion and Hip-hop Culture, he analyzes the cross-section of the two worlds. And so, in his music he poses similar questions about the world of crime, murder and money. If that’s too much to think about, Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book may be more to your liking.
