The last year has been truly been a journey for Grand Hustle’s Trae Tha Truth. Last summer, his hometown of Houston, Texas was devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The Houston rapper began helping his community recover from the natural disaster in the midst of the storm. Trae Tha Truth personally reached out to local fire departments to volunteer and help rescue people in danger. The Grand Hustle artist said, “I felt helpless yesterday when I had to be rescued, so I know that feeling.” In addition to lending a helping hand during the storm, the Houston native created Relief Gang, a campaign to help those in need. Over time, Relief Gang has raised thousands of dollars, donated clothes, held shopping sprees and helped rebuild communities.
Earlier this year, the Grand Hustle executive returned to music with his first album since the storm. Hometown Hero was an incredible twelve track project that featured T.I., Lil’ Boosie, Young Thug, Mozzy, IDK and more. This week, Trae Tha Truth returned with another project called 48 Hours Later. The project is the sequel to his 2011 mixtape, 48 Hours. On the project, Trae Tha Truth delivers nine solo tracks that display his signature flow over darker sounds than he normally raps over.
