Trae tha Truth
Trae tha Truth
There are three ways to write about Trae tha Truth. One is to talk about his music, and that’s important because he is a rapper and making music is what he does. The other is to talk about him as a human, and that’s important, because he has done some truly monumental and impressive things. The third is to talk about the intersection of him as a rapper and his as a humanitarian, because that’s where Trae really belongs. Only a handful of people have ever blurred the borders of what it means to be a musician, and what it means to be a civic leader and then able to blend them together as well as Trae has.

Trae’s music is easy to categorize but difficult to fully translate into text. Trae is, for lack of a better term, a “street rapper.” His music is often inspired by the experiences of the disenfranchised, which is rooted in the broken roads of the ghetto. It’s driven by loss, by love, by loyalty, and by when one or two or all of those things are taken away or tested of those he cares about.

Trae’s music is powerful, real, and his voice is a tractor trailer shoveling gravel and sometimes, it all adds up to be this scary thing. It booms and it bangs and it thumps. Sometimes it pounds you in the chest, it sounds like how the rain feels and sometimes it feels like how the sun feels when it shines on your back and sometimes it feels like when everything in your life is going wrong and sometimes it feels like when everything is going right, too.

Trae Day, an annual festival commemorating the actual holiday the City of Houston gave Trae for his role as a civic leader, made him the first rapper in Texas to be given an official holiday by the city. He’s also founded a nonprofit organization, helped counsel inmates, sponsored at-risk high school students and more. Trae The Truth is very modest, he never talks about his guest features he’d done or any of his new tapes (Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, TI, Nas, etc.)or how he’d landed another MTV JAM Video of the Week or how he’d signed to T.I.’s label or any of the things people were watching him accomplish from afar. What you need to about Trae is he is a rapper, who has only ever viewed rap as another way for him to help people.
Scotty ATL
Scotty ATL
Until now, Scotty has been a humble force brewing within the rap scene of New Atlanta. Always laid-back and "Cool", Scotty's newest project, F.A.I.T.H. (Forever Atlanta In The Heart) burned up the streets, taking Scotty ATL from a local hustler to a nationwide budding superstar. Armed with media support from XXL, Fader, SPIN, Pitchfork, Worldstar, LiveMixtapes, Hot 107, 94.5 and Ballers Eve; mixtapes hosted by the legendary DJ Scream and breakthrough DJ Burn One. Close relationships with artists like Cyhi, Young Dro and the fast-rising fellow Atalien Trinidad James, Scotty continues to push further into the public eye. His new video "GAME" featuring Trinidad Jame$ and Big Krit landed on 106 & Park as thenew joint of the day and is currently in rotation on MTV Jams. As part of #NewAtlanta, Scotty is the definition of what the various artists from different crews that identify with the "#NewAtlanta" trend represent: original, classic hip hop music with substance. It's artists like him who are giving rap fans a reason to finally pay attention to new ATL talent. Scotty grew up on the Eastside of Atlanta, raised by a single mother. Life wasn't always easy for him and the block he grew up on, so the "hood" topics we hear in his lyrics are a reflection of reality for this artist, nothing we hear is contrived. These days, Scotty navigates through the industry as a young boss full of nonstop hustle, integrity, a flawless live performance harkening the days of the real MC.
