Dozens of family members, friends, and fans filled a bar in east downtown Houston for the premiere of a new video by a Houston rap legend.

Willie D’s Coon 2 was greeted with enthusiasm and applause during its big debut at King’s Court Thursday night.

It is part two in a series of videos created by the member of the Geto Boys.

He says the video’s release is time to coincide with the release of his latest single by the same name.

Willie D says the video highlights those in the African American community who sellout their own so that they may be accepted by mainstream media.

He’s expected to do at least 5 versions of the song and video.

The event was hosted by King’s Court owners J. Patel and Ankur Jariwala.

It was sponsored in part by 8th Wonder Brewery in downtown Houston.

Willie D also interviewed Houston rap legend Lil Troy for his podcast before the big party. 

Here are some of the pictures I snapped at the event that lasted til nearly midnight!



Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan will begin carrying out a new government mandate from the Texas Attorney General’s Office, denying certain parent’s vehicle registration if they are behind on child support payments.

“I want to urge the public to be aware this law is taking effect, to be prepared and to get in touch with the Attorney General’s office to take care of their obligations,” said Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan.


Beginning in September, parents who are 180 days behind on child support payments will be denied the ability to register their automobiles.

“This is an administrative office. We are now being directed to act as enforcement for the Texas Attorney General and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and that concerns me,” said Sullivan.

The Texas Attorney General will notify parents 90 days prior to their registration renewal date, warning them their registration will not be processed unless they contact the OAG to setup a payment plan. They must make a satisfactory payment toward the plan to qualify.

“Texas children deserve financial assistance. I understand and support the intent of the law. On the other hand, I am concerned this will extend our wait times, create longer lines and lead to more vehicles on the road without valid registrations,” said Sullivan.

The Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office Automobile Division performs more than 4.5 million automobile transactions each year. It serves as an agent for the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, assisting in motor vehicle registration, registration and title fee collections and distribution to proper entities.
