After the lineup was announced on Facebook Live, CEO Chris Boleman brought Bun B to the stage. The legendary rapper expressed his excitement for this year’s H-Town Takeover, which is set to take place on Black Heritage Day, March 11.
“It’s a beautiful thing to be a part of [the] Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. It’s such an intrinsic part of Houston culture," he said. "It’s one place where everybody gets to come together, enjoy each other's company. We eat big, we play games, we ride rides and we go inside to see amazing concerts,” Bun B said.
Headlining alongside Bun B will be Slim Thug and Screwed Up Click’s very own Z-Ro, Lil Flip, Lil' Keke and more.
“I wanted to make sure that Houston was represented and this is the first time a Houston artist from the hip-hop community was asked to headline, and I didn’t want to do it by myself. Houston has an amazing culture of hip-hop and a lot of legendary artists, and I felt like if I got this opportunity, why not bring some of those people out with me,” Bun B added. “We’re all from Houston, we’re going to do it for Houston, in Houston baby!”
Ticket sales will begin on January 13 and start at $20. The rodeo is set to kick off Monday, February 28, and will run through Sunday, March 20.
