The Album:

Known for his distinct, gravelly cadences and rapid fire flows, Trae Tha Truth has cemented himself as one of Houston’s legendary rappers, earning respect from his peers across the country. Delving into more personal territory for his ninth solo studio album, Tha Truth Pt. 3 is a detailed portrait of the man behind the mic. An epic 18-track effort packed with street wisdom and rich storytelling, Tha Truth Pt. 3 is the second full-length this year from Trae, following Tapped In, a collaborative album with gritty Sacramento rapper Mozzy. Premiered by XXLTha Truth Pt. 3 follows 2016’s Tha Truth 2the third installment of the H-Town hitman’s album series. Featuring appearances from Young Thug, Post Malone, D.R.A.M., T.I., Wyclef Jean, Maxo Kream, Skippa Da Flippa, Sy Ari Da Kid, Ra Ra, Kim, Ink, and the entire all-star cast of I’m On 3.0,” Tha Truth Pt. 3 is one of the event rap albums of the summer.

Explains Trae, “Tha Truth Pt. 3 reveals more of my personal life. It’s gonna be one of my best albums to date. full of instant classics and timeless music. I get more personal on this album-I’m not going to reveal exactly how – you’ll have to experience it for yourself. But for one example, on ‘My Intro Song,’ I’m talking to my brother who was murdered.”

Prior to releasing the Tha Truth Pt. 3, Trae unleashed a couple of massive collaborations, including the Post Malone-assisted “Too Late,” the Complex-premiered “Thuggin” featuring Young Thug and Skippa Da Flippa, and the aforementioned “I’m On 3.0” posse cut. The H-Town veteran also served up the more somber and reflective “Take Me Back” to balance out the glossy big name features, showcasing his full range as a rapper.


About Trae Day: 
Trae Day, an official holiday declared by the Mayor of Houston to reward Trae for his contributions to the community, will take place July 21st. This year, Trae Day is a full-on celebration, lasting an entire weekend. Sponsored by McDonald’s, Trae Day will feature free performances from a legion of artists, such as Dave East, Curren$y, Nick Cannon and others, and numerous gifts and give-aways. “Trae Day was supposed to be a day that they celebrate for me,” explains Trae, “but I reversed it and made it a day that we celebrate the city of Houston. The fact that I can go back and put smiles on people’s faces and give them hope, that’s what gives me my energy and my motivation to keep pushing.”

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.
