Trae

Houston's "King of the Streets" doesn't mince words

HP: That is simultaneously the least threatening yet most intimidating shout-out ever. I would very much like to never get a shout-out like that from you.

Trae: [silence]

HP: On a more somber note, I can't let you leave without getting your opinion on the losses Houston's music scene has suffered recently. How do you feel about the whole Pimp C situation?

Trae: "Now [police] don't really mess with me at all. I think they ain't really want that headache."
Trae: "Now [police] don't really mess with me at all. I think they ain't really want that headache."

Trae: When it came to Pimp, it hurt not only me, it hurt the whole game. He meant a lot to me as a friend, an older-brother figure, and he was part of the forefront for our whole music culture. And people need to let it be known, it's not just Houston [rappers] who's dying. People, rappers, athletes or just normal people, they die every day.

There's bad shit that happens to a lot of people. Like, they wanna disrespect a life that was lost by saying it was drugs or this or that, when a lot of the times that's not the truth. Regardless of who you are, bad shit just happens. It's life. And life goes on.
