Album Stream: Trae Tha Truth ‘Hometown Hero’

King Truth (aka Trae Tha Truth) Recruits Young Thug, T.I., and More to Pay Tribute to a Recovering Houston on Home Town Hero Album.




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."

Yesterday, 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 RaRa, Home Town Hero arrives via EMPIRE.
