Critical Praise for Trae Tha Truth:

“More concise rhymes, insightful and diverse subject matter, and solid features show how far Trae has come as an MC and a songwriter.” –

“Houston hip-hop veteran Trae Tha Truth may not be anything to you but down in the city of Screw Juice, the Asshole By Nature is the man in the streets”VIBE

“Trae embodies everything that is Texas in an artist. He’s independent, strong and a survivor.” –

“Trae Tha Truth (or just Trae) is one of the more authentic artists currently operating in Texas, if not the South in general.” – HotNewHipHop

“Trae tha Truth is one of Houston’s most imposing musical forces, a bona fide legend in the harrowing streets of southwest Houston.” – Houston Press

The Song:

Texas mainstay Trae Tha Truth links with Young Thug for “Slugs,” the third single from the charismatic, raspy-voiced Houston artist’s Tha Truth 2 album. Debuted by Billboard, “Slugs” follows the Quentin Miller-assisted “Takers” and “All Good,” featuring T.I., Rick Ross, and Audio Push. As is to be expected with Trae, Tha Truth 2 boasts a wide range of features from bonafide superstars Wiz Khalifa, T.I., and Ty Dolla $ign to street rap vets like Yo Gotti to top notch newcomers such as Watch the Duck and Quentin Miller. The second part of a two album series, Trae Tha Truth’s 8th solo album, Tha Truth 2, follows 2015’s Tha Truth, which included the popular singles “Trickin’ Every Car I Get” featuring Future and Boosie, and the Problem and Lil Boss-assited cut “Yeah Hoe.” Trae Tha Truth’s Tha Truth 2 releases February 5th.

Tha Truth 2 is more from the soul, it’s more dark.,” Trae Tha Truth explains to Billboard. It’s that breathe of fresh air of reality. There are a lot of people who go through hard times, and think no one can relate. Things that I went through, it gives them hope that they can get through it too. It’s from the heart, the energy and vibe gives you that 2Pac feel, capturing the moment and displaying that pain, the passion, and the struggle in a certain way. I’m blessed to be one of the few that can do the same thing. This album reminds me of Pac’s Me Against the World…. when you’re at that breaking point where you’re either gonna lay down or come out swinging, I decided to come out swinging.”

With an influence that expands beyond music, Trae Tha Truth has never stopped putting on for his community, and the City of Houston acknowledged it when they honored him more than eight years ago with his own holiday. Trae Day is an annual festival commemorating Trae for his role as a civic leader – he was the first rapper in Texas to be given an official holiday by the city, and is the only to receive proclamations from two different mayors. He has also founded a nonprofit organization, helped counsel inmates, sponsored at-risk high school students, and more. Trae Tha Truth’s Tha Truth 2 is the second part of a two album series, following 2015’s Tha Truth. Releasing Feb. 5th, Tha Truth 2 is available for pre-order on iTunes.

Fans can catch Trae on his Truth Tour through February.

Trae Tha Truth Background:

There are three ways to write about Trae Tha Truth. One is to talk about his music, and that’s important because he is a rapper and making music is what he does. The other is to talk about him as a human, and that’s important, because he has done some truly monumental and impressive things. The third is to talk about the intersection of him as a rapper and him as a humanitarian, because that’s where Trae really belongs. His music is often inspired by the experiences of the disenfranchised, which is rooted in the broken roads of the ghetto. It’s driven by loss, by love, by loyalty, and by when one or two or all of those things are taken away or tested of those he cares about.

Trae Tha Truth is very modest, he never talks about his guest features he’d done or any of his new tapes (Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, T.I., Nas, etc.) or how he’d landed another MTV JAM Video of the Week or how he’d signed to T.I.’s label or any of the things people were watching him accomplish from afar. What you need to about Trae is he is a rapper, who has only ever viewed rap as another way for him to help people. Trae Tha Truth’s Tha Truth 2 is the second part of a two album series, following 2015’s Tha Truth. The project is slated to release on February 5th and is available for pre-order on iTunes.
