Bun B is a founding member of the "Underground Kingz", writer, Rice University professor, and now designer of a new Astros cap. Bun B has joined forces with the Astros and New Era to create his own design, which is a blue hat with a white panel front, orange brim, and includes an outline of Texas. The placement of the Texas outline puts the Astros' Star-H in the approximate location of Houston on the map.

All things considered it's a great looking cap, and anything that makes the Astros more "trill" is a good thing. The hats will be sold starting Tuesday at Minute Maid Park and local Academy Sports + Outdoors stores.

Here is Bun B talking about the creative process and his connection with the city of Houston and the Astros in general:
