Bun B took to the baseball mound on Tuesday night, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Houston Astros vs. Cleveland Indians matchup at Minute Maid Park. The rapper-writer-professor was on hand to promote and debut his collaborative set of hats with New Era. The Port Arthur-native and New Era teamed up for a limited run of hats, featuring a blend of the Astros classic retro colors and a new design that represents the pride of Houstonians. The Trill OG’s logo is also featured on the side of the baseball cap.

“The Astros star and specifically the old school color scheme with the white, orange and red is what most people recognize Houston by, and we’re happy to represent it,” said Bun B. “I love it, I’m happy the team went back to it and we understand what that means not just to Houston, but to baseball fans in general. It’s good to see the team representing that and the organization being proud to go back to those days of glory.”

Fat Joe was also in attendance on Tuesday night to support Bun B, covering the event for MTV2′s Off the Bat. Available now, the caps can be purchased at the Houston Astros Team Store, Academy Sports + Outdoors and online at www.academy.com.

Amy Winehouse statue

On Sunday (Sept 15), London revealed a life-size bronze statue of Amy Winehouse in Camden, North London. Unveiled on what would have been the late singer’s 31st birthday, her parents and hundred of fans gathered for the emotional event.

“They don’t put statues up for people who are with us anymore so it reinforces the fact that physically she’s gone but spiritually she’ll never leave us. I feel sad, very, very sad,” said her father. “We shouldn’t be here but we are, this is the reality and we’ve just got to make the most of it. So this statue is part of making the most of it. Getting people to come here, spend some time with Amy and put a flower in her hair and remember her in a very positive way. That for me is wonderful.”

Sculptor Scott Eaton said he hopes the monument will be looked at as “reflective and contemplative.”

For this occasion Tush Magazine courted RihRih to transform herslf into a character with similar physical attributes to Storm in X-Men, when Halle Berry played the role in 2004.
