Bun B is earning congressional recognition for his efforts to get young people into the voting booths.
On Instagram, the UGK rapper posted a photo of his Certificate of Congressional Recognition from U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas' 18th district. Bun earned the honor for his involvement in a "Walk 2 Vote" event organized by the Student Government Association of the University of Houston-Downtown.
The certificate praises the rapper for his continued community involvement, which it says is "worthy of the respect, admiration, and commendation of the United States Congress."
In 2011, the mayor of Houston named August 30th Bun B Day.
