HOUSTON, Texas -- Thanks to help from his super friends, Trill City turned into the epicenter of the hip-hop world on Tuesday, March 12, as Bun B reclaimed his title as the most-attended male rap performer in RodeoHouston history with 75,005 paying attendees.

On a night that sizzled hotter than a double-patty Trill Burger being served at one of the locations on the NRG Stadium concourse, the 33-song, 90-minute set featured a who's-who of internationally recognized stars, including Drake, Nelly, Rick Ross, Eve, Ying Yang Twins, That Mexican OT, and DMC of Run-DMC.

It was a coup de grace from the Port Arthur-raised, long-time Houston-cultural ambassador and entrepreneur. The affable and influential artist built his name to bucking bull-sized levels at RodeoHouston since he first brought his rap spectacular to the dirt and dust in 2022 as his H-Town Take Takeover. In 2023, he grew the show to his Southern Takeover, which drew an impressive 74,573 fans.
