Houston Hip-Hop Stars Hold Fish Fry for the Homeless

At St. John’s Church in Houston on Monday, local hip-hop stars joined together to bring a delicious fish fry to the homeless. The owner of Rap-A-Lot Records, James Prince, held the event and his friends, Slim Thug and Bun B, came along to take part in the celebration of community.

Bun B told KHOU that he recognizes how Prince could easily spend his time thinking about himself and his networking goals for Super Bowl week instead of planning a fish fry. “How beautiful is it to see a person in the week where everybody is thinking about themselves…The day he should be thinking about himself, he chose to be thinking about people who aren’t going to be concentrated about this weekend,” Bun B said.

In addition to leaving his fish fry guests with a full belly, Prince handed out sleeping bags and kits with supplies. He says he plans on holding the event next year as well.

According to Facebook, Prince started Rap-A-Lot Records in 1986 in Houston. Their most famous act, the Geto Boys, helped to solidify southern and Texas hip-hop as a force to be reckoned with in the music world.
