Houston Rapper Trae Tha Truth Address Radio Ban; Plans New Mixtape

(AllHipHop News) Texas rapper Trae Tha Truth continues with his career, despite a ban on commercial Hip-Hop stations in Houston according to reports.Almost 1,000 people have signed a petition circulating around the Internet requesting that KBXX 97.9 The Box lift the ban on the rapper, which was reportedly enforced after a July 2009 shooting erupted during “Trae Day.”

“I aint into making nobody famous, but at the end of the day you gotta understand one thing. I keep it too thorough for the streets, so people are going to ride or die with me,” Trae Tha Truth told AllHipHop.com. “I’m too real for that, you can’t ban me.”

“Trae Day” took place at Texas Southern University. A variety of celebrity rappers and local politicians attended the event, to honor Trae Tha Truth’s work in the Houston community.

As “Trae Day” was winding down, Albert “A Walk” Mondane and several associates fired into a crowd filled with thousands of teenagers, striking and wounding eight people.

Mondane was eventually charged with engaging in organized crime and sent to the Harris County Jail.

Trae will address the ban on his new mixtape, Can’t Ban Tha Truth, the follow-up to his street album, The Incredible Truth.

Additionally Trae has finished work on his upcoming album Tha Truth which features the single “Incredible,” featuring Lil Wayne and Rick Ross.

A video for “Incredible” will be released next week.
