(AllHipHop News) Grand Hustle rapper Trae Tha Truth and cartoonist Jay Sugarman have signed on with WTF Studios to produce ten episodes of their animated series Trae. The new internet program will be similar to The Adventures of Trae Tha Truth that began running on YouTube in 2008. The digital shorts featured cameos from Sway Calloway, Angela Yee, and Mystikal with individual episodes topping over 200,000 views.
“We are very excited to have Trae Tha Truth on WTF?! It’s funny, real, edgy and it reeks of ‘I don’t give a F’, and neither do we,” says WTF Studios co-founder Marlon Wayans. “I think Trae Tha Truth’s audience will follow it to WhatTheFunny and expand from there.”
WhatTheFunny.com was launched by Wayans and Funny or Die co-founder Randy Adams as a comedic site tailored toward African-American, Latino and Asian markets. Trae will be the site’s first animated series. Other content presently on the site include parodies of Beyoncé’s “Grown Woman” and “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”
Veteran actor Omar Epps serves as an executive producer for Trae. He was the person who introduced the original Adventures of Trae Tha Truth to Wayans.
“Trae Tha Truth’s animated series has the brand of humor which is a perfect fit for Marlon Wayans’ WhatTheFunny digital network,” says Epps. “With Trae’s core demographic being die-hard fans, I’m excited for him to expand his audience through WhatTheFunny’s expansive platform.”
