MAINSTREAM??? How you figure??? TRAE has always kept it 1000. No lollipop ish and thats why the streets respect him so much. You think he paying for them big name features? I highly doubt it. TRAE gets the ultimate ghetto pass for his passion to make HOUSTON and the surrounding areas a better place to live. Real recognize real. Holla back

i think his new voice is kinda dope and what hes been doing lately been good. liked his last album and all the mixtapes. trae is a legend in my book and its good he can make songs with big name younger artists and its not like he made songs with katey perrys and biebers and sold out
shit i would do songs with those two quicker then i would with wiz and them bc you know with katie perry and JB you gonna sell off top just bc they loyal worlwide cults

He is trying to cater to the mainstream audience and you can tell by his beat selection, his change in flow and voice, and the features. If it ain't broke don't fix it, he shoulda just stuck with the sound he had. And you can tell because after the restless album every project after that he was slowly but surely changing his style. Imo.
And if he's not paying for those big name features then how is he getting them? I'm sure it ain't by trading verses with some of them, because what benefit would a mainstream artists get from having trae on their album? My opinion I think he cashed out sum, maybe gave others some weed, and others a trade of a verse, or maybe a plug on sum lean. Lol

Yall really think he paying for them features? RICK ROSS, LIL WAYNE, WIZ KHALIFA, JADAKISS, SLIM THUG, etc...not a chance! Not one underground artist has enough bread for all them features that he consistently has. He's getting them on the strength of being "THE TRUTH". Game recognize game

Exactly. Fuck this false sense of loyalty that doesn't even exist. Get paid! Killing your chances to get paid because you don't want to be seen as a sell-out to a bunch of broke mothafuckers in the hood, when you can get rich by doing songs with pop stars is pretty stupid. Trying to keep it real with the hood will have you right back in the hood with them...flat broke.
