Trae Tha Truth has been leading rescue efforts in his hometown since Hurricane Harvey struck this summer through his Relief Gang organization, an undertaking he has remained hands-on with even to this day (enlisting celebs such as Beyoncé in the process). Inspired by the resilience of the community and the work that’s been done, Trae is returning to music with a new album, Hometown Hero.
Hometown Hero standout “Better Dayz” is a sonic departure from the moodier, somber material on the album. Buoyed by T.I.’s hook, Trae speaks about the future he envisions for the city he takes great pride in, his hometown of Houston. Fellow Hustle Gang member RaRa also joins in on the action. “Better Dayz” follows up Trae’s last single, the YoungThug-assisted “Don’t Know Me.”
