Trae Taps Lupe, Wacka Flocka, DJ Khaled For 2010 “Trae Day”

(AllHipHop News) Houston, Texas rapper will host his third annual “Trae Day” anti-violence rally this July along with numerous rap stars and celebrities. This year’s “Trae Day” takes place at the former International Ballroom in Houston and includes an all-star lineup featuring Lupe Fiasco, Young Buck, Yo Gotti, Wacka Flocka, Sean Garrett and others. Sirius’ popular satellite radio personality Angela Yee will serve as the evening’s host, along with DJ Khaled, funnyman Lil’ Duval and former 93.3 jock Crisco Kidd. July 22nd was officially designated “Trae Day” in Houston, Texas for the rapper’s commitment to working with at-risk youth and Houston’s less fortunate. Ironically, last year’s event ended in violence when six people were shot and injured as the concert portion of the day was winding down. One man was eventually charged with engaging in organized crime and other charges and jailed. This year, Trae will preside over the “Stop Teen Violence” rally, to encourage Houston youth to find education and positive alternatives to express their anger or frustration. Trae’s non-profit, Angel’s By Nature, will sponsor train rides, pony rides and face painting for children at the free event, which is open to the public. Although admission is free, fans are encouraged to donate school supplies like pens, paper, markers, crayons, backpacks, folders, binders, etc.
