The expansion of music career into the world of acting and then putting it together to make the lectures and deliver to the performing art students is one hell of a job. And not every artist is blessed with such a fantastic career. But Bun B is really lucky about that.
He appeared as a musician, a rapper and then stepped into the film world. Later in 2011, he got a job as a lecturer at Rice University where he teaches Hip-Hop and religion. Ahead of that, a couple of years later he introduced a coloring book along with a partner author that got too much popularity that they began to expand it.
Bun B was originally his nickname, which he adopted on the stage as well. He was born on March 19, 1973, in Port Arthur, Texas, and was named Bernard James Freeman. While there is no information available about his parents and siblings.
Bun B began his music career in the late ‘80s. He first played with his friend in a group called PA Militia. Later Pimp C took the crew into his group called UGK (Underground King). Their initial production attracted a couple of producers. But the explicit content in their lyrics could hardly get them any success. UGK got eliminated, and Bun B had to continue alone.
Running solo built his fan following as he released some cool songs that caught a lot of attention. Following his growing fan base, he introduced his albums with the latest one Trill OG: The Epilogue launched in 2011. His music style inspires a lot present day rappers, especially the newbies coming by.
Bun B was dating Angela Walls back in 2003. Their relationship became so strong that they decided to get married. Well after the marriage, Bun B became a stepfather of Walls’ children. Apart from that, he is not dating any other woman.
So far it has emerged that Bun B has a net worth of $3 million. It does not sound accurate as he is committed in plenty of activities and all of them must be getting him a handsome amount, especially the music.
