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. 

Thank you Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee! #Honored

Walking with @anniseparker and the great students and staff of UHD to the polls! #W2V
