Back in February, Trae Tha Truth and fellow artist-activist Mysonne teamed up for the joint album If You’re Scared Stay Inside. That release saw 14 socially and politically charged cuts with some amazing contributions from Jim Jones, Black Thought, Jay’ton, TJ Boyce, Pastor Stephen A. Green, Ink, Nhale, and Sky Da God. Now, Trae is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming mixtape 48 Hours After, a presumed fourth installment of his well-received 48 Hours series that first kicked off ten years ago. That Moxiii Double Dee and 20K The Producer-backed effort will also feature assists from Lil’ Keke, Big Pokey, Jared, Baby Houston, and the late DJ Screw.
This week, the Houston veteran reveals a track from said project titled “June 27th,” named after Screw’s classic body of work that made landfall back in 1996. The nostalgic cut shows Trae delivering some classic H-Town bars and subject matter for fans to enjoy:
“Wood on my doors, starch on my clothes, ceiling fallin’ off, trunk don’t close, if I switch it up, might buy a Rolls, everything glass, slidin’ on fours...”
Outside of music, Trae has continued to provide for his community, both though the expansion of businesses, various charitable acts, and via his self-grown movement for racial equality. Recently, it was announced that he would be teaming up with James Harden to provide “Trae Day” scholarships for individuals in need of higher education-based financial assistance. He’s also recently provided 50 computers to families and opened an ice cream shop that will provide jobs to those with special needs — simply put, Trae really is a true hero to many.
