A respected rapper and a devoted humanitarian, Houston’s King Truth (aka Trae Tha Truth) uses his music to amplify issues important to his community. Embracing his status as an institution in his city, King Truth reflects on a turbulent time on Home Town Hero, his tenth studio album. Kicking the record off with What About Us,” a poignant track with a video with a cameo from Beyoncé, King Truth shines a spotlight on the still-struggling city, noting that though the news cycle has moved on, there are many people who still need aid. The poignant intro lends heft to the rest of the album, in which King Truth returns to his impossibly self-assured self, recruiting Young Thug for the manic Don’t Know Me,” which premiered earlier this week in XXL, trades bars with Mozzy on “No Pressure,” and shows off his smooth singing voice on the laid-back “I Got It On Me.” 

King Truth shined a spotlight on Better Dayz,” the latest focus track from Home Town Hero. Featuring a drawling guest appearance from T.I., “Better Dayz” is an endlessly funky track, perfect for riding with the top down. Premiered by Billboard along with an interview feature, “Better Dayz” is an optimistic anthem for those dealing with bills, relationships, or any other everyday struggle: “Another day another bill that I have to pay/The weed man say he five minutes away/And that was yesterday.” Featuring additional appearances from Boosie, Money Man, Ink, Kim, and RaRaHome Town Hero arrives via EMPIRE.

When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in August, the King Truth leapt into action, raising money and saving people affected by the flood. During the immediate aftermath of the disaster, King Truth provided aid to Houston’s citizens, patrolling a boat through Houston, Port Arthur, and surrounding areas to rescue those trapped by flooding (including San Antonio Spurs forward Jonathon Simmons) and providing Texas inmates with food and supplies. Following the hurricane, King Truth launched a GoFundMe through his Angels By Nature nonprofit organization, which earned over$211,000, with celebrities such as Snoop DoggMike Epps, and T.I. donating. For his efforts in support of the hurricane recovery, King Truth recently received a commendation from the City of Houston, who honored the rapper by listing him as one of the heroes to be honored by “Houston’s Harvey Heroes” Day, occurring each year on February 27th.
