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
Closing out what’s been a great return to form for the Houston legend this year, Trae Tha Truth shares a video for the Problem and Lil Boss-assisted Tha Truth Pt. 1 single “Yeah Hoe.” A song produced by Dnyc3 and Trent, guided by a G-Funk synth that bleeds Cali rap nostalgia, the Phillyflyboy-directed video finds Trae flexing atop the Warehouse Live entrance in East Downtown Houston. Problem checks in from Los Angeles before the clip returns to H-Town where Trae, Lil Boss, and their ABN crew mob out, backed by Cadillacs on swangas.
Earlier this month Trae Tha Truth announced Tha Truth Pt. 2, sharing the album’s first single,” Takers,” which debuted via XXL and features buzzing ATL rapper Quentin Miller. “Takers” is an instant great track with a pre-order of the album on iTunes. 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 “Realigion” alongside DeJ Loaf. Trae will be heading out on his national Truth Tour starting on January 2016. Tha Truth 2 is slated to release Feb. 5th.

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.
