The Video:

Houston-based rapper, activist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Trae Tha Truth, has joined rescue missions for Hurricane Harvey and has launched a Go Fund Me titled “We Are One! Hurricane Harvey Relief” to raise money through his 501 (C)3 foundation Angel By Nature. His mission is to raise $250,000 buy supplies needed to aid underserved families and senior citizens.

Recognized for his outstanding philanthropic endeavors throughout the years, Trae the Truth was honored by being given his own day by the mayor of Houston in 2008, entitled, Trae Day. For over 10 years, Trae has produced numerous food drives, back-to-school drives, and his annual free block party called Trae Day, has been widely praised for being a great source of badly needed resources, useful information, and family-friendly fun for the community. Since Hurricane Harvey touched down in Houston, Trae has been in the field, joining and organizing rescue missions, delivering supplies, and providing a sense of comfort. His efforts, including going out in boats to retrieve residents who were stranded in their homes, including Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Simmons, have landed him on the nationally syndicated CNN and Good Morning America’s Hometown Heroes segment.

Trae Tha Truth is calling for the support of everyone to help him continue his efforts. In addition to the monetary donations, clothing donations are also being accepted.

The 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 WayneRick RossT.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 came out on February 5th and is available to buy on iTunes.
