Trae Tha Truth On Children's Shelter, Lupe Fiasco & Grand Hustle Deal

Trae Tha Truth speaks on his new Grand Hustle deal before explaining what he does with his children's shelter. He also explains why he and Lupe are friends.

One of the newest additions to T.I.'s Grand Hustle roster, Trae Tha Truth recently opened up about his relationship with Tip. The Houston emcee also spoke on his work with a children's shelter and his friendship with Lupe Fiasco.  

"I got a children's shelter," Trae explained in an interview with Pow-TV.net. "I'm housing abused kids, a lot of CPS kids. I'm going, actually, back and forth with the people who got the spot...I guess they kind of don't really understand the importance of it. So, I'm thinking about possibly shutting it down for one or two months and relocating. I don't want to have kids there and it's uncomfortable when you've got people not understanding what they're really going through and making stuff a hassle."

According to Trae Tha Truth, he will make his decision on shutting down soon but added that he wants comfort for the children who need a shelter. 

"If I do shut down for a month or two, I'ma hopefully go get a bigger and better spot," he noted. "I want this shelter to be somewhere my child or anybody else could go to and feel comfortable. I want them to live how we live."

When asked about his Grand Hustle signing, Trae was quick to point out the deal was about more than money.

"First and foremost, people gotta understand within the industry, a lot of these niggas are my true partners. Like, fuck the music. For instance, me and Lupe [Fiasco], we brothers. When we get together, we ain't give no fuck about music," he explained. "Me and Tip go way, way back...When he came home, we didn't get in touch with each other for awhile but when we did, it's like we hit it right back off. He a real good nigga. When I say that, I say it from the bottom of my heart."

    Rappers and other celebrities probably do a lot of good that we don't see, but it's great to see Trae doing what all people with some cash should do and give back to the less fortunate.

    So nice to see someone in the HipHop community actually give back. I mean this nigga not even rich and he's giving back, imagine what Satanists like Jayz, and Kanye could do if they actually cared!!!
