Tomorrow is TRAE DAY!

MAN Houston tomorrow is going to be quite a day once again. The Street King himself has organized yet another TRAE DAY. As decreed unto him by then Houston Mayor Bill White, for his work in the community in his city, Trae Day is a day where Trae gets major artists and activists together to give back to the youth in his city with a free concert, and a hguge back to school supply give-a-way.

This is really real and comes from the heart for sure. Who else does this shit? No one on this level really. The streets gave it to Trae and he gives it back to the streets. I have said it before and I will say it again, I don't know too many (any) rappers on Trae's level who really, really takes staying true to where he came from seriously. This dude goes and visits prisons, juvenile detention centers, troubled areas, he's actually genuinely out there with the people and Trae Day is an annual manifestation and celebration of that spirit. I commend this dude for real and this year's Trae Day looks to be the biggest one yet.

If you can't be in Houston on Friday, you can see the whole thing on's UStream Channel!

Check the press release below:

The Fourth Annual Trae Day will be going down this Friday, July 22, in Houston, and for the first time ever, it will be live broadcast on XXL’s UStream channel.

Houston native Trae Tha Truth first created the celebratory community event four years ago, and in the time since, it has become a yearly ritual that community members as well as artists and fans from near and far look forward to. In the past, upwards of 10,000 people have attended the event, which includes live performances and rides.

As in years past, free school supplies, including backpacks and uniforms, as well as immunizations, will be made available to those in attendance.

In addition to Trae, who dropped his latest album, Street King, last Tuesday, Lupe Fiasco, Rich Boy, YC Worldwide, Tity Boi (2 Chainz), Twista and more will be hitting the stage.

XXL will be in attendance, capturing the event, performances, and interviews with the artists so that those at home can tune in.

Attendance for Trae Day is completely free of charge. For all media information or attendance to Trae Day, contact Nancy Byron at OGPR Marketing & Public Relations, Inc. (832) 220-6071 or —XXL Staff
