A gloomy Paris day serves as the setting to H-Town legend Trae Tha Truth’s introspective album cut, “Determined”. Directed by Phillyflyboy, the Eiffel Tower soars in the background, lighting up the gray skies as Trae reflects on challenges that’ve thrown his life off track while sustaining a hustle that’s kept him intact.
A prime example of the versatility and depth that Trae presents on ‘Tha Truth‘, “Determined” delves deep into the veteran emcee’s life, as he reflects on his own children:
“Neeko is getting older, walking, talking, and laughing, and talking shit at the same time, funny how time is passing/Lil Jared is fly as a hawk, I know them girls gonna be in trouble you can tell when he talk, it ain’t a game/baby Houston is a star I can feel it, give him a year I swear he’s gonna be as hot as a skillet.”
Released last month via his own A.B.N. label & T.I.’s Hustle Gang Records, ‘Tha Truth‘ is Trae’s seventh studio album. The 16-song album boasts features Future & Lil Boosie on “Tricken Every Car I Get”, Rick Ross on “I Don’t Give A Fuck”, Problem & Lil Boss on “Yeah Hoe”, in addition to Nipsey Hussle, Lil Bibby, Snootie Wild, Que, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, T.I., J.Cole, Ink, Rich Homie Quan, & DeJ Loaf on various tracks.
Whether in the community, with his family, or creating music, there’s no denying that Trae Tha Truth is determined to continue making an impact.
