Last Thursday, I had the privilege to be invited to Tree Sound Studios’ Speakeasy Dinner for the well known Texas artist Trae Tha Truth. Mali Hunter, 3 Little Digs and Grand Hustle presented this event to celebrate Trae Tha Truth’s new mixtape release of “Tha Blackprint” which has over 240,000 mixtape views on Livemixtapes.com. To show, support many celebrities came out to congratulate him on his success such as DJ Scream, DJ Smallz, Lil Duval, Lloyd, Waka Flocka Flame and T.I. just to name a few.
One thing about a Tree Sound event is that you always feel like you’re at home. No matter your reason for attending, you get to really know people better. PLUS! the GREAT food always prepared by Mali herself. But as the event went along and everyone entered, “The Cave”, to get ready for Trae Tha Truth to take the stage, T.I. stated one thing that made me understand why the people at the event were the way they were.
“In this industry, it’s not often you get to work with a Real N*gga and right now in my life, I will work with a real n*gga over money any day.”
And as people say, “Real Recognize Real”. Nothing but real people felt the need to come out and show love to an ARTist (I like to say) who has stayed real with themselves. As Trae Tha Truth took the stage, everyone applauded him for his hard work in the rap game. After speaking, Trae decided that he wanted to turn up and go ahead and perform for the crowd which was a performance not to be missed. Checkout the video above as he spits a verse from his song, “Choppa Talk” and then performs “I Got Em” with Waka Flocka Flame. Watch as DGBSM goes crazy in the crowd!
