Trae Tha Truth is a Houston powerhouse, with a career stretching back more than a decade. He’s one of the city’s elder statesmen, with a gravelly baritone and a penchant for keeping it real, no matter what.
On Friday, the Hustle Gang cohort will release his new album Tha Truth. If his career is any indication, expect weighty meditations on mortality and life on the streets.
The 16 tracks feature appearances from T.I., Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Ink, Rich Homie Quan, DeJ Loaf, and J. Cole, who guests on “Children of Men.” Over syrupy strings and an old-school R&B chorus, courtesy of Ink, Cole and Trae trade melancholy bars about regrets and friends lost to violence and suicide.
