Houston, Texas – On Saturday, Houstonian’s gathered at the 8th Wonder Brewery to celebrate “713 Day.” 713 DayHosted by rap artist Lil’ KeKe, the event celebrates and salutes Houston’s DJ’s for their efforts to give Houston artists a platform.  

The DJ’s that were honored included DJ Big Tho, DJ Supastar, DJ Michael 500 Watts, DJ Gloss, DJ HI-C, and DJ Good Grief. 

In 2015, former Mayor Annise Parker proclaimed Lil’ KeKe’s “713 Day,” and in 2018, Mayor Sylvester Turner proclaimed Lil’ KeKe’s “7- Thirteen Day,” where the city celebrates through art, entertainment, food, and fun.  

It was a spectacular time seeing all the local Houston artists supporting each other.  You saw proud Houstonian’s sipping on their beverages as they nodded their heads to the beat.  

I had the pleasure of interviewing the man behind this amazing event. Check out what he had to say in the video below.
