After dropping six mixtapes, Trae the Truth is finally ready to drop his debut album, thanks to J. Cole. While chopping it up with AllHipHop, Trae says that J. Cole pushed him to ditch the idea of another mixtape and focus on his debut album.
"He was like 'there's no point of doing a mixtape bro. You need to take your lane. You got a lane out there that you can control and make your name within hip-hop,'" the Houston native said about their convo.
His debut album, Tha Truth, drops on July 24th.
