Karen Civil Premieres the Visual for the Tha Truth Pt. 3 Highlight After a Year of Activism and Charity From the Veteran Rapper
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.” – BET.com
“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.” – SXSW.com
“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
Representing for Houston with every word and deed, Trae Tha Truth is one of hip-hop’s most consistently excellent veterans. Driving his Rolls Royce around his hometown in reverse and slow-motion, Trae effortlessly stunts in “FrFr,” his latest video. Premiered by Karen Civil, “FrFr” (short for “for real, for real”) is a tough-talking, brutally honest downtempo banger, with Trae counting money and decrying haters and fakes. A lean-drenched highlight from the rapper’s 2017 Tha Truth Pt. 3 album, “FrFr” showcases the rapper’s effortless charisma and affirms his don status as we enter 2018. Premiered by XXL, Tha Truth Pt. 3 features additional appearances from Post Malone, D.R.A.M., T.I., Wyclef Jean, Maxo Kream, Sy Ari Da Kid, Ra Ra, Kim, Ink, and the entire all-star cast of “I’m On 3.0,“(including Snoop Dogg, Gary Clark Jr., Tee Grizzley, and many more), Tha Truth Pt. 3 was one of the event rap albums of Summer 17.
Widely respected for his charity efforts and his annual Trae Day initiative, Trae Tha Truth received the key to the city in Summer 2017 from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in August, the veteran rapper leapt into action, raising money and saving people affected by the flood. During the immediate aftermath of the disaster, Trae provided aid to Houston’s citizens, patrolling a boat through Houston, Port Arthur, and surrounding areas to rescue those trapped by flooding (including San Antonio Spurs forward Jonathon Simmons), providing Texas inmates with food and supplies, and launching a GoFundMe through his Angels By Nature nonprofit organization. Trae’s GoFundMe effort to help underserved families in Houston has already raised over $209,000, with celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Mike Epps, and T.I. donating money to the campaign.

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