MP3: Trae Tha Truth – “Tricken Every Car I Get” (ft. Future & Boosie)
Premiered by The FADER, the Houston Legend Calls On Two of Trap Music’s Best to Release Latest Single from 7th Solo Album, Tha Truth
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‘s single, “Tricken Every Car I Get,” which was premiered by The FADER, finds the “big homie” of Houston teaming up with Future, Boosie, and production team League of Starz, for a grandiose drop-top anthem that remains true to the Lone Star state’s infatuation with customized rides. Widely recognized as one of the most genuine individuals in hip-hop, Trae has established some of the strongest relationships in the industry. On “Tricken Every Car I Get,” Trae uses his notoriously gritty vocals to deliver spirited verses illustrating his confident demeanor. The chorus, which is covered by Future, adds stamina to the single through its re-energizing atmosphere. Using the momentum from Trae and Future, Boosie solidifies his presence with an aggressive verse about his life as a D-Boy before music. Lastly, The League of Starz-produced instrumental serves as the final piece of the puzzle with momentous snare hits during every transition before its heavy kick combination cements the song’s intensity.
“Me and Future were in the studio one night and we had did a couple of records and Future had came up with the hook,” Trae told The FADER, who continued on Boosie’s added involvement. “Boosie had just came home. I believe it was his first night in the studio, and I was up there visiting and we ended up knocking it out. We’ve been knowing each other, because we all were young coming up and doing our thing, so we always had the relationship.” Trae and Boosie have collaborated a time or two before, but Trae says that “this is gonna be the first really big one where we’re both known throughout the world.”
Trae will be releasing his album, Tha Truth, on July 24th, two days after Trae Day, which The FADER TV once documented as an appointed holiday in his city of Houston where Trae throws an event that gives school supplies, immunization shots, and HIV tests to disadvantaged youth. “Tricken Every Car I Get” serves as the second single from the album, following the video release to Trae’s Rick Ross-assisted banger, “I Don’t Give A Fuck.” The dark video, which features the song’s special guest, Rick Ross, shows the two rap heavyweights rapping their respective verses in various murky environments, embodying to the song’s gloomy, cutthroat atmosphere.

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.
