Hometown Hero is out March 16.
Trae is currently in the middle of a massive lawsuit against Radio One and Houston-based 97.9 The Box program director Terri Thomas. Among Trae's complaints are gross negligence and defamation, with Trae alleging that the outlets’ ban against him amounts to "tortuous interference with prospective relations."
