Trae Tha Truth Turns Himself In

Trae Tha Truth has turned himself in to the authorities. This happened after his cousin, fellow rapper Z-Ro implicated him in an assault case.

Trae Tha Truth Facing Assault Charges Brought By Cousin Z-Ro

Trae Tha Truth is facing the music.

After his cousin, Z-Ro alleges that he assaulted him.

According to Houston authorities, Trae – real name Frazier Othell Thompson, III – turned himself in on December 29th.

The 42-year-old rapper/songwriter/record executive is answering charges stemming from an incident that occurred back in August.

A scuffle went down between the rapper, who happen to be cousins, after a celebrity basketball game hosted by 50 Cent.

Footage shows several men jumping a man while he is curled up in a ball.

They were right outside of a restaurant.

Z-Ro described the incident to TMZ, saying –

“[I was] minding my business and when I walked outside, I’m called over to the side of a sprinter van and [Trae] was like, ‘Ay, when you get finished doin’ that, come take this walk with me right quick,”

Z-Ro – real name Joseph Wane McVey III – went on to say –

“I was like, ‘You talkin’ to me?’ I had to make sure he was talking to me ’cause I mean, I see you everywhere, you see me everywhere. So when I walked over there, the only thing I saw after that was this [gestures to being punched in the face].”

Apparently, Trae had a different take.

Taking to social media, he posted –

“It wasn’t no 7-on-1 situation. It wasn’t no blindside ambush. That’s not what this is. This is family business, internal stuff that’s been going on for 10, 15 years that’s probably been building up and just spilled over into sh*t.”

While currently out on bail, Trae is now awaiting the next phase of the case.

When turning himself in, the rapper is embraced by onlookers.

Can these two family members get it together?

We’ll have to wait and see how this turns out.
