Trae's Cartoon Is a Big Hit on the Web
Go ahead and add "Cartoon rappers smacking the shit out of each other" to the ever-growing list of popular Internet entertainments, then file that under "Things that come as absolutely no surprise at all." Since premiering on worldstarhiphop.com a few days ago, the first installment of Houston MC Trae tha Truth and animator Jay Sugarman's The Adventures of Trae tha Truth series has already been viewed more than 2.2 million times.
The episode is a perhaps slightly exaggerated account of last summer's Ozone Awards at the George R. Brown Convention Center, where, as was widely reported, Trae laid the smack down on fellow Houston MC and nemesis Mike Jones. Beef: it's what's for dinner. - Chris Gray
