Trae - Spiros - June 6, 2008

From the dip baby, dip department... Trae @ Spiros on June 6th... I like the tag line... "18 to dip, 21 to sip"... ooowee that's got me riled up!


I've made the drive down to Houston last night and I'm always impressed with myself when I drive to and from Houston... the drive is about 3 hours... and half way through the drive I'm usually about to burst! And I mean burst! I then continuously tell myself that the next exit I'll stop at the nearest gas station and relieve myself... but I never do... cuz being a small Asian guy, I'm scared to stop at a dirty ol' gas station in the middle of no where for fear of life... I've seen too many movies and the Asian dude never makes it. And that's Tha Truth!

More info:

Trae (born Frasier Thompson III on July 3, 1980) is a Southern rapper from Houston, Texas, United States. With his cousin Z-Ro, he is a part of the underground rap group Screwed Up Click. Trae and Z-Ro, along with Trae's other cousin Dougie D,[1] are the founding members of the group Guerilla Maab. Trae has a little brother "Jay-Ton" who is also a rapper and part of ABN.

Trae first gained exposure on the Houston rap scene in 1998 when he made his rapping debut on Z-Ro's album Look What You Did to Me. In 2003, he began his solo career with the album Losing Composure. Same Thing Different Day (2004), the acclaimed Restless (2006), and now his latest release entitled "Life Goes On" . Trae is no longer signed to Rap-A-Lot records.

Trae's trademark is a low, deep, guttural voice. His flow is very fast. In these two areas his style is somewhat reminiscent of Z-Ro's and Flesh-N-Bone from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Trae sometimes, though not always, mixes multiple vocal layers into his songs. His voice might be a little lower to that of Yung Joc. He is good friends with Yung Joc & Gorilla Zoe.
