Video: Trae Tha Truth Interview w/ Angela Yee

Trae appeared on Angela Yee‘s show last week to promote his Can’t Ban Tha Truth mixtape and to discuss his ban from a certain Houston radio station and how it all got started after a shooting happened at a Trae Day celebration last year and a host at that radio station blamed him for it, Trae later got on a mixtape and called her a “fat ass.”

Long story short, for one they banned my music. They shooting out texts and emails not to play my music, don’t play no remixes with me, don’t say my name. My son was just born, they had a picture of him on the website. Make sure you snatch down all the pictures of anything to do with him, like on some kiddie sh!t.

Hit the jump for another video and an audio clip from the interview, where he talks about the effects of the ban and which artists have been supporting him through out this time and they talk about his Angels By Nature campaign.

Trae also spoke to XXL about appearing on the show and playing a piece of audio where Pimp C accuses the same radio station of “reverse payola” when he didn’t wanna open for Baby and Lil Wayne in Houston.

At the end of the day they don’t owe me nothin I don’t owe them nothin. It’s like, the station got people in a catch 22 situation. There was a rapper down there who was on the station and he gave me a shoutout. He was like shout out to Trae you know, I don’t agree with the ban. So you know I just want to shout him cuz thats a real n*gga. And he got banned, and the person who was interviewing him, he used to have a 5 hour show now he got a 2 hour show…Somebody played a Chamillionaire song with a verse of mine on it with me and Pimp, it was a remix, and they actually got terminated for that. A DJ did a mixtape outside of work, he got suspended a week and a half. A DJ actually said he played my music in the club, he just don’t do it in the station cuz he got bigger people to answer to, he got suspended a week and a half. As far as promoters, when they go to do shows, like say if you want to book me for a show you ain’t allowed to say my name or play my music, so now it’s to the point they’re trying to put promoters to the point where you can’t book Trae. I think one of the craziest situations was Bun had the Houston for Haiti, he reached out to me to headline the Houston for Haiti, where we use each one of our names to get all our fans in there and instead of them paying for the show you just make a donation, food, clothes water, etc. and he reached out to them to get them to put me on the commercial with them because every artist has a different fan base, so you know the more the better. But what end up happening was they told him no they wouldn’t say my name. I end up showing up anyway, just me being the cat I am, showed up with 100 big caseloads full of water…you supposed to overlook any of this you have people over there dead and going through it. Right now it’s to the point where anybody affiliated with me they get shut out.

    you know what im sayin, its fuckin pathetic. Last year i went to Meth/Red and then to Nas show but that was it. I think mc’s who attract hip hop crowds and not trap music/crunk music crowds are hesitant to come here.

    We get shit like Bun B and Wayne all the time but fuck all that. I’d pay an entire months rent to see some Mobb/Lox/Wu/Roots type shit but im prob the only person in the whole state who feels this way.

    You’d be surprised. I met this Mexican chick in North Dallas off Preston who was listening to Black Moon, I was mind blown.

    I swore up & down she wasn’t from here, but she from West Dallas so…

  11. LaneKiffin*CainSniffin*LaneSwitchin* Says:

    yall some southern rap hatin ass niggas on here, but i respect the shit outta Trae, Lil Flip, Paul Wall, Slim Thug and a few others for gettin they independent grind on in TX. In a state this big, if you can get a solid fanbase to always be checkin 4 ur next cd and attend your shows, you can make it big here.

    Still cant believe no one called out Flip for the “Freestyle King” title. He sucks reeeeaal bad (II). Nigga caked the fuck up tho, i aint mad at em.

    Drake spoke to PopEater on the set of his Kodak shoot about how his music is life-driven, how he has to watch what’s going on in his own life and speak on it in a third person perspective otherwise he’d have nothing to rap about.

    I met a dude in Boston, name Black Swan, he was selling/pushing his music in parking lots in the suburbs, out in Boston…

    he was alright… nh, but i respected that hustle, thats whatsup.

    Shit, id prob feel more comfortable just playing my music (if i rapped) out my car with my trunk fulla discs, then trying to get attention onthe internet.

    lotta ayo statements in ther, so a blanket NH is applied.

    Like… Pac, Budden, BIG, Jay, ‘Ye, Weezy, and that’s just off the top. Marshall on “When I’m Gone” is more introspective, more open than anything Drake put out.

    Like this 1/2 breed motherfucker has ever, or will ever in his worthless life, put out a song like “All That I Got Is You”, a song I can’t listen to without tearing up.

    I know I drake bash a lot, but that’s just the icing on the cake of mediocrity.
