Yes, the heavily anticipated album is here, Cant Ban The Truth was released today. The Houston rapper is definitely still standing after the a few setbacks… He currently is dealing with the ban Radio One has placed on his music, after a personal beef with a radio personality from 97.9 the Box in Houston. He also is notoriously known as punching rapper Mike Jones during the Ozone awards a couple years ago. The controversial rapper allowed me the opportunity to interview him a few weeks before the release of his album. I left this conversation with, some advice and knowledge applicable to my own life outside of music.
The heartfelt, yet true to the “streets” album contains collabs with other artists such as Lupe Fiasco, Gudda Gudda, Bryan Angel of Day 26 Young Turk and the late great Pimp C. It even includes an interlude of Pimp C’s mother, defending Trae. On a lighter note it features comedian Lil Duval who has also worked with him on Tare’s cartoon. The Adventures of Trae Tha Tuth. During the interview he mentioned his non profit organizations Angels By Nature. Each track provides a deep look into Trae the man versus Trae the rapper, or perhaps they are one in the same, rare.
This is a great album I recommend you all to get it. I hope that Trae cant gain the support he needs to move beyond this ban on his music and gain the recognition he deserves as a true artist whose music needs to be heard. I leave you with the video “What It Is” which definitely describes this album. No Punchlines, no gimmicks a true look into the mind and heart of a genuine artist.
