It's Trae Day 2009... and Everybody's Celebratin'

To commemorate the one-year anniversary of the City of Houston's proclamation of "Trae Day," the chairman and CEO of Houston's ABN is throwing a giant block party from 3-9 p.m. in the parking lot of TSU Stadium at Cleburne and Tierwester in the Third Ward (or, appropriately enough, the Trey). Scheduled to appear are U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee - try to contain your surprise - City Councilmembers Peter Brown and Ron Green, and a Lil Wayne album's worth of rappers including Bun B, Gorilla Zoe, Mannie Fresh, Rick Ross, Yung Joc, Slim Thug, Shawty Lo and, most likely, a special guest or two.

Trae Day '09 is a free, full-on family festival, with pony and train rides, face painting, moonwalks and free HIV/STD testing, immunizations and school supplies (while they last). Trae will also introduce Angels By Nature, his new nonprofit organization dedicated to attending to the needs of at-risk families and youth.

Trae Day 2011

It’s the late days of summer and with Trae Tha Truth doing his best to leave his mark all over the city of Houston, it only means that Trae Day 2011 will be a lot more impactful than the last. Building upon the success of his recent musical outings, Trae will head to Delmar Stadium on July 22nd and he’s bringing guests from the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Rich Boy YC, Don Cannon, Lola Monroe, 2Chainz, Twista, Lil Duval & more.

As it has always been, Trae Day is an event benefiting the children of Houston and surrounding areas with free food, backpacks, school supplies, immunizations and more. Forget Nino Brown bringing turkeys on the block for Thanksgiving, Trae’s bringing FDR’s New Deal and then some. As an added bonus, XXL will be streaming the event
