UPDATE: Trae Tha Truth has now launched a crowd-funding site for Hurricane Harvey victims.
ORIGINAL AUGUST 29 STORY: Since the mid-2000s, Trae Tha Truth has become a figurehead of Houston’s Hip-Hop scene. At a time of dire need, the Hustle Gang member (and label VP) has stepped up in a big way. During a local FOX 26 feature, the veteran MC was shown traveling by boat to help neighbors evacuate their flooded homes. “I felt helpless yesterday when I had to be rescued, so I know that feeling,” said the onetime Screwed Up Click member. In the video, he said that his efforts have been over the course of several days. In the six-minute video, Trae details going to homes where residents did not want to leave. The rapper empathizes with his neighbors feeling that way.
Trae has had days within H-Town dedicated to him and his community efforts. Earlier this year, the MC pledged 75 scholarships to local students.
Trae previously broadcast several personalized offers of support through social media to those in need:
Earlier this year, Trae released Tha Truth, Pt. 3. That ABN/Empire release features Royce 5’9″, Snoop Dogg, Styles P, E-40, and Fabolous.
