Recently, Trae the Truth stopped by for an interview with Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” where the rapper revealed that he had started his own radio show.
“Me and Tony Rock with DJ Skee,” he said. “‘Banned Radio.'”
The title, of course, refers to a ban originating from a dispute in 2009 where the Houston rapper had a disagreement with a radio personality, resulting in his ban from KBXX “97.9 The Box.” “It’s been four years. …It ain’t seem like they trying to [make amends], but it don’t bother me,” said Trae. “When you come from where I come from, you adapt to the situation, so you wouldn’t know that I would be banned right now.”
Trae also spoke about his latest project, I Am King, a mixtape which will be the third project he releases under his ABN Ent. imprint with T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records. “The whole tape gonna be crazy with everybody. The tape is kind of the whole industry embracing me, showing people why they do deal with me. I don’t really cry over spilled milk; I deal with it and keep it pushing.”
Trae continued, “A lot of people mad because they say it should be an album, but I feel like we working on a Hustle Gang album, so I ain’t in a rush to put out my album. I’m releasing 20 tracks on there, of course… I got Diddy… Tip, Jeezy, Krayzie Bone, Lupe Fiasco, Wiz Khalifa, Jadakiss, even got Floyd Mayweather.”

Trae the Truth’s last studio album was 2011’s Street King, and several of his projects have been released under legendary Houston Hip Hop label Rap-A-Lot. In 2012, Trae was shot outside of a Houston strip club. The shooting resulted in three dead and two wounded.
