Trae The Truth didn’t get to where he is today by carefully weighing the pros and cons of every decision. He’s more the type to choose his path by instinct, and let the chips fall where they may. Reckless? Perhaps, but the strategy seems to have served him well thus far. On this freshly-minted promotional single, the Houstonian mainstay jumps on a menacing, sampled beat by Cy Fyre to spit about the perils and the rewards of his hustle. Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P. of The Lox echo the headliner’s sentiments on the guest tip, expressing a similar willingness to roll with the punches as they strive to get their paper up. This cut isn’t part of a larger project, but we’ll keep you posted on Trae’s plans in the weeks and months ahead. While you wait for further details, why not take a listen to his last feature, January’s reader-approved Wid It?
