FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RAP CELEBRITIES TO FLOOD HOUSTON
IN CELEBRATION OF 2ND ANNUAL "TRAE DAY" EVENT
FREE FAMILY BLOCK PARTY AT TSU PLANNED


Houston, TX - Last year, on July 22nd, Houston rap history was made as native rap artist, Trae Tha Truth, was honored by his city with the reading of a Proclamation declaring that day "Trae Day"; the first time this honor was given to a rap artist. The honor was bestowed upon Trae for his constant and selfless work within the communities of Houston, focusing on at-risk youth. The ceremony was followed by a free family Block Party, replete with members of Houston City Council alongside a host of local music celebrities and was attended by some 10,000 people, who braved sweltering temperatures in the high 90's to congratulate Trae and line up for the free school supplies he had provided.

This coming Wednesday, July 22nd, from 3-9PM, history will repeat itself as Trae and friends take over the parking lot of TSU Stadium for the biggest daytime party to hit the South Side. Trae will be joined by US Congresswoman, Sheila Jackson Lee and Members of Council Peter Brown and Ron Green, as well as a host of music celebrities from far and wide including Bun B, Rick Ross, Gorilla Zoe, Mannie Fresh, Yung Joc, Hurricane Chris, Shawty Lo, Slim Thug, Blood Raw & USDA, J Dawg, Rich Boy, GS Boys, Rocko, Jayton and the whole ABN group, Ron Artest, Von Wafer and Herculeez and Big Tyme. The day will include a great roster of family activities with live performances, train rides, pony rides, face painting and moonwalks and will also offer an HIV/STD testing site and free school supplies while they last.

Contests include a watch giveaway by renowned jeweler, King Johnny and rims courtesy of Texan Wire Wheels and local station 97.9 The Box will provide a live remote.

A more adult celebrational after-party will be held that night at the Roxy Nightclub.

Media is invited to cover the event and should RSVP their coverage intentions to Nancy Byron, OGPR.
