The original Assholes by Nature, cousins Trae and Z-Ro remain two of Houston's most durable rap heavyweights. A gruff but oddly mellow rhymesmith, Trae tha Truth has recovered from a gunshot wound suffered outside a southwest Houston cabaret in June, and this is first his first headlining show in town since the incident. One of Texas' most introspective and eloquent MCs of all time, Z-Ro is the self-styled "King of the Ghetto" and a must-follow on Twitter who last month emphatically put any retirement rumors to rest in a sharp-tongued new video, "This Ain't Livin."
