Reppin Houston Trae Tha Truth came through to talk new music, his long time relationship with Nipsey Hussle his Houston Mount Rushmore and more.
His latest release Exhale was the first project he released in a while. The project includes 12 tracks and no features which was a switch up from his usual a rapper who is normally stacked with features and zero on this project. He shared that the album title largely translated to how he felt from dealing with court as well as Nipsey’s untimely passing among other things.
When Sourmilk asked Trae what Nipsey meant to him he shares that their relationship was brotherhood. “We’d been around each other for a long time, a lot of people don’t know Houston was another home for him, that’s why I ended up doing a memorial for him.” Speaking on Nip he dedicated a song on his album to the late great rapper and adds that all of the money earned through streams for the track will go to his trust fund.
The Houston rapper has no shortage of music in the vault as he notes there are over 2,000 tracks in his archives. “I’m constantly elevating… I’m blessed to make timeless music but I feel like skill wise I’m always elevating.”
