Rapper and philanthropist Trae Tha Truth would rather be in the trenches with the community than visit The White House. The “I’m On 2.0” rapper shared he declined an invitation to the White House this week. Revealed in a social media post he said he wanted to instead focus on helping the families of the victims of the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo New York.
Trae said the invitation was “to meet with the President with the families of those who have wrongfully been murdered by police.” President Biden honored Trae last year with the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award.
