Houston, TX - For all of the controversy and negative imagery attached to the rap music world, its artists often do much to give back to their communities and show support for the young people coming up behind them. One such artist is Houston's Trae tha Truth, and, in honor of his outstanding work within the community, the City of Houston is honoring Trae with his own day; the first time this honor has been extended to a rap artist. Henceforth, July 22nd will be known as Trae Day. The proclamation honoring Trae will be read at 2PM on that day by Houston's Mayor, Bill White, and the ceremony will be attended by City officials and several prominent rap artists.

In further celebration of Trae Day, Trae is throwing what is to become an annual event; a block party at Houston's Sharpstown Mall where he will be joined not only by City officials and members of the rap community, but hundreds of children and their families from the communities that Trae routinely gives back to. The party will feature games and rides for the children, food and drinks and free live performances by Trae and a host of very special surprise guests.

Currently a free agent as an artist, having left the Rap-A-Lot stable to pursue other options, Trae is also very active musically. He currently has a critically acclaimed mixtape in circulation, The Diary of Tha Truth, a song with Slim Thug (Nothing to a Boss) and a single featuring DJ Khaled (So Hot), covering him both in the streets and on the radio. In the course of his music career, Trae has scanned well over 200,000 units both as a solo artist and as a member of ABN Gang, without the benefit of major promotion; something we fully expect to catch the attention of the majors. Stay tuned for news of a signing.
