Trae tha Truth Facts
- In 2008, in recognition of his philanthropic work with the local community, the mayor of Houston had announced that they would be celebrating July 22 every year as ‘Trae Day’. This was the first time that such an honor was extended to a rap artist by the city.
- In June 2012, he was shot in the shoulder following a performance at an after-hours club in Houston. During the incident, a friend of his named Carlos Durell ‘Dinky D’ had succumbed to his injuries on the spot. Around 20 gunshots were fired there, also killing 30-year-old Erica Rochelle Dotson and the intended target, Coy ‘Poppa C’ Thompson. The next month, a man named Feanyichi Ezekwesi Uvukansi was arrested and charged with capital murder for the incident. He was later convicted and sentenced to life without parole.
- In October 2017, he had hosted a fundraiser for an elderly woman in Houston who was attacked and carjacked at a gas station.
- In July 2020, he was one among 87 people who were arrested in Louisville, Kentucky. The march was in solidarity with the family of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American woman who was fatally shot in her Louisville apartment on March 13, 2020, during an investigation into drug dealing operations.
