Known as Trae Tha Truth is coming to A3C Festival to do some great work. Trae Tha Truth released “Tha Truth” an album, no mixtape on July 2015. His dedicated fan base deserves this new installment.
The Houston rappper is an authentic artist with a prolific sound. We know the rasp in his voice; it carry’s the verses, making his songs flow-out, and gripping you to only pull you in.
This time his tracks are filled with killer features from: Future, Nipsey Hussle, Lil Bibby, Snootie Wild, Que, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, T.I., J. Cole, Ink, Rich Homie Quan, and DeJ Loaf. Trae had many cool features in the past and has continued to surprise us with this album. The truth is what he spills; all the while keeping you conscious of his content and making you feel emotional about his position in the rap game.
Trae Tha Truth took some time to speak with A3C and gave me the scoop before coming to Atlanta. You will probably see Trae Tha Truth and (ABN) stamped everywhere because of his own holiday in Houston, TX Trae Day. We talked about Angels by Natures, his non-profit organization, and his upcoming projects.
Peep the highlights:
Tell us about Angels by Nature? And what does that have to do with Trae Day?
Angel by Nature is my non-for profit. Everything I do is generally about the music, but you know I wanted to bring in the family. The Angels by Nature is actually a family thang. Having my own day was not enough. You know Trae Day. So, I wanted to make it all about the community. The non-for- profit helps me do something great things for the kids and my community. My artists’ friends help alot but it’s not about a memorable moment from the talent that attend but seeing the children having a sense of relief. Just giving out backpacks and school supplies; makes a change.

‘The Truth’ had 16 tracks. Which one do you feel reflects that element of creativity that gave you the best memorable experience in the studio?
“Book of Life” was the one. I was in the studio by myself. I was just in a zone. Yeah. That one…
What can we expect from you at A3C 2015?
I just want to work. I be happy to work on the process of pushing out the ‘Truth.’ And right behind this one is the “The Truth Pt. 2.” I’m gonna be pushing the both of them. It’s not easy coming with a good song let along an album back to back, but I’m gonna push. I’m gonna go overboard in Atlanta. But, look out for my cartoons … yeah trying to develop some more content.
Check the full album on Souncloud, Spotify, and ITunes to get familiar with “Tha Truth.”
