When you think about community organizers, elected officials first come to mind, but recording artist Trae Tha Truth is someone who is actually doing more than providing meaningless lip service.
Recently, Houston’s Hometown Hero Trae Tha Truth and his Relief Gang wonder twin DJ Mr. Rogers took to the streets of H-Town and surrounding communities to provide thousands of meals, water, generators, bags of charcoal, wood and other supplies who were suffering from freezing temperatures.
Trae and Rogers jumped into action posting messages to their popular social media pages offering aid to those in need and imploring restaurants and businesses to allow them to buy out inventories so that they could personally deliver these items to the darkest, coldest, and hardest-hit areas.

Trae also explained that he and Mr. Rogers actively devised a plan that calls local plumbers to join them in providing services to families at a fair rate considering the state emergency that has crippled so many. Trae is hoping that compassionate plumbing experts will allow the Relief Gang to compensate them directly on behalf of the residents with burst pipes, sewage backup, etc. at a discounted rate.
On the music front, Trae Tha Truth has partnered with fellow changemaker and independent hip-hop artist, Bronx, NY native Mysonne just released a social justice-inspired collaboration entitled If You’re Scared Stay Inside.
Both Trae Tha Truth and Mysonne spent time with Right On! Digital’s Cynthia Horner discussing social activism and their new recording.
