Did anyone else read the title of Trae Tha Truth‘s latest feature and immediately picture one of those little green musrooms from Super Mario Bros? Be honest. This freshly-released mixtape single isn’t about that kind of 1 Up, but it will certainly make the Houston veteran’s foes wish they had one. Over League of Starz’ menacing street boardwork, he boasts about his ability to stay one step ahead of the competition, even if that means leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. In addition to the headliner’s aggressive bars, this joint features hard-nosed contributions from three of Trae’s homies; Jadakiss, Wiz Khalifa and Booth newcomer Lil Boss jump on League of Starz‘s ominous street boardwork to deliver guest 16s. In addition to appearing on Trae’s next mixtape, I Am King, 1 Up can be found on the producers’ LOS.FM street album.
