A veteran rapper and elegant ambassador for his city, the philanthropic generosity of Houston’s King Truth (aka Trae Tha Truth) matches his prolific musical output.
Revisiting a cut from 2017’s “Tha Truth Pt. 3” to commemorate the anniversary of a friend’s death, Trae mourns his friend Money Clip D in “Can’t Get Close,” his latest video. Pressing play on a collection of home movies, the rapper reminisces over a soulful instrumental, watching archived footage and visiting his friend’s grave in the cemetery. Premiered as a WorldStarHipHop exclusive, “Can’t Get Close” follows the release of Hometown Hero, his tenth studio album, which came out on Friday.
