Most rappers are willing to exercise a little artistic license to entertain their fans, but Trae the Truth is all about keeping it one-hundred. On Something Real, the lead single off his first studio album since ‘07’s Life Goes On, the Houston emcee teams up with two Southern-rap cohorts to give listeners Tha Truth and nothing but. Over Mr. Lee‘s laid-back organ-synth beat (featuring a hook sampled from Jodeci‘s Jodecidal Hotline and backing vocals by Day26 member Brian Angel), On his opening verse, Slim Thug lets listeners know exactly how he feels about the game’s all-too-numerous poseurs, and the headliner follows him up with some agile, quietly intense middle bars. Always game to reassert his realness, Plies ends the track on a swag-heavy note. If you think this street-certified cut’s the real deal, you’re sure to find more to your liking on Trae’s Tha Truth LP when it hits stores and online retailers February 16, 2010. In the meantime, fans can look forward to the release of similarly-named prelude mixtape The Incredible Truth, coming soon.
