Street King (Explicit)
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Young Empire Records
Texas hood star Trae the Truth's Street King cruises at a low hum. There's not much happening thematically, just endless proclamations of how he "runs the streets." Yet he might be the only rapper who can whisper, "Please don't r-u-n-u-p on me/ I might c-l-i-c-k quickly," on "I'm Gone Bus," and make it sound like a sensuous ballad. The beats flow like they were screwed and chopped as Trae contextualizes threats of violence into a kind of stress reliever, commanding respect from Wiz Khalifa ("Getting Paid"), Rick Ross ("I Am The Streets"), Lil Wayne, Lupe Fiasco and many others.
