Trae tha Truth is a Houston hero, even having been granted his own day by the city's mayor. Between Trae and his cousin -- fellow Texan emcee Z-Ro -- who knows how much the Houston locales loves them both?

The rapper has been rhyming for sometime now, dropping countless solo albums independently, but his mind is primarily on business. As he builds his solo career in a joint venture with T.I.'s Grand Hustle, he also plugs his brand and crew ABN (Assholes By Nature) and the ABN Renegadez.

In addition to everything hip-hop, Trae has always held steady in contributing to the Houston community -- especially when it comes to the children.
