Trae Tha Truth follows the release of his 7th solo album, Tha Truth, with WorldStarHipHop-premiered visuals from the star-studded project for “Tricken Every Car I Get.” The single, which features Futureand Boosie, is brought to life with appearances from all three artists in the Phillyflyboy-directed video as they perform the track surrounded by their favorite cars. “The video is dope but it is merely the cherry on top of this absolutely banging track,” HotNewHipHop explained in their coverage of the video. Set in a car shop, the gritty track maintains its intensity with dark visuals and an energetic display from the trio. The visuals for “Tricken Every Car I Get” are preceded by the last video from Tha Truth, the Rick Ross-featured single, “I Don’t Give A Fuck,” which shows the two rap heavyweights rapping their respective verses in various murky environments, embodying to the song’s gloomy, cutthroat atmosphere.
The “Tricken Every Car I Get” video follows the release of Trae’s 7th solo album, Tha Truth. With additional features from Nipsey Hussle, Lil Bibby, Snootie Wild, Que, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, T.I., J. Cole, Ink, Rich Homie Quan, Problem, and DeJ Loaf, the album debuted via Complex and showcases some of Trae’s most prolific collaborations as well as his growth as an artist. “With Trae appearing on multiple Grand Hustle projects since the signing, everything about Tha Truth feels like it’s occurring at the proper time,” wrote the Houston Press, who wrote a spread on Trae about his recently released album and Trae Day earlier this week. The Houston rapper further expanded in an interview with VIBE. “I think the most important of this album is everybody knows I’m capable of doing good music and I can spit but I think the album’s going to take a lot of people by storm.”
The video is additionally preceded by Trae Tha Truth’s Trae Day. An appointed holiday in his city of Houston once documented by The FADER TV, Trae Day is an event that gives school supplies, immunization shots, and HIV tests to disadvantaged youth. Performers at this year’s event included Ty Dolla $ign, Paul Wall, J-Dawg, Lil Herb, K Camp, Nipsey Hussle, and more.

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.
