First off ihiphop wants to recognize Trae Tha Truth for all the good community work he does. Now to the business Trae Tha Truth sat down with Angela Yee to promote his album Can’t Ban Tha Truth and talk about his law suite against the only radio station in his hometown of Houston.
If your late to whats been going on Trae has been banned from Houston radio station 97.9 “The Box”. A shooting took place at Trae Day which is a real day in Houston and a personality of the radio station blammed Trae and he called the personality fat @ss and she got mad and things got out of hand.
“At the end of the day they don’t owe me nothin I don’t owe them nothin. It’s like, the station got people in a catch 22 situation. There was a rapper down there who was on the station and he gave me a shoutout. He was like shout out to Trae you know, I don’t agree with the ban. So you know I just want to shout him cuz thats a real n*gga. And he got banned, and the person who was interviewing him, he used to have a 5 hour show now he got a 2 hour show…Somebody played a Chamillionaire song with a verse of mine on it with me and Pimp, it was a remix, and they actually got terminated for that.
A DJ did a mixtape outside of work, he got suspended a week and a half. A DJ actually said he played my music in the club, he just don’t do it in the station cuz he got bigger people to answer to, he got suspended a week and a half. As far as promoters, when they go to do shows, like say if you want to book me for a show you ain’t allowed to say my name or play my music, so now it’s to the point they’re trying to put promoters to the point where you can’t book Trae.
I think one of the craziest situations was Bun had the Houston for Haiti, he reached out to me to headline the Houston for Haiti, where we use each one of our names to get all our fans in there and instead of them paying for the show you just make a donation, food, clothes water, etc. and he reached out to them to get them to put me on the commercial with them because every artist has a different fan base, so you know the more the better. But what end up happening was they told him no they wouldn’t say my name.
I end up showing up anyway, just me being the cat I am, showed up with 100 big caseloads full of water…you supposed to overlook any of this you have people over there dead and going through it. Right now it’s to the point where anybody affiliated with me they get shut out.” Trae Tha Truth
