In late June, Trae spoke on the deadly shooting and dodging death.
“I’m alive though, so my pain is really with the families of those whose lives (were) lost, one of whom was a part of my ABN family,” Trae stated, referring to his Project ABN, a musical group and charity. “There are children that lost a parent that night and that’s the biggest tragedy.” The show had attracted a large crowd and several hundred people were in the parking lot when the shooting began, he tweeted. “I don’t know what started the shooting or who was targeted I just know that the crowd of people started moving in my direction and we were basically all sitting ducks at that point. A case of wrong place, wrong time.” (Houston Chronicle)
A couple days prior, he also hopped on Twitter to discuss the outpouring of support he has received from the hip-hop community.
“Sitting Here Thinking & Being Greatful To Be Livin… But Can’t explain Tha Pain Felt For Those Who Died #GodBlessTheDead …,” he tweeted June 21st.
“I done been through hell and back these last 3 years..& Thinking of Dinky Fighting for his last breath knowin nothin can be done… D*mn.” (Trae Tha Truth’s Twitter)
Initial reports claimed Trae was one of five victims who suffered gunshot wounds.
Five people were shot at a southwest Houston strip club and three of them died at the crime scene. Among the injured is rapper Trae Tha Truth, FOX 26 News has learned. The shooting victims who were killed were identified as two males and one female. Trae Tha Truth and another male were taken to hospitals; one of them was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital while the other was taken to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital and has since been released so that he can speak with Houston Police Department homicide detectives.
