After suffering wounds from a violent shootout that left three people dead, Trae spoke to XXL and gave his side of the story…
“I’m not sure exactly what the altercation was necessarily about, but long story short, whatever transpired, they ran in my direction, so in the process of running in my direction, that kind of had everybody in the open,” Trae told XXLMag.com about the incident, which took place outside of Scores Cabaret. “So as the altercation came my way, shots were being dispersed, but since it was coming our direction, it was a crowd of people. Everybody was wrong place, wrong time.”
According to MyFoxHouston, the Houston rapper was one of five people shot in the early morning hours on June 20—three of whom died from the gunshot wounds. Houston’s KTRK TV reported that more than twenty shots were fired, and two males and one female were pronounced dead at the scene. Trae says he knew some of the fallen.
“One of ‘em, most definitely, was part of the ABN family,” he continued, referncing his Assholes By Nature crew. “My brother, who got killed on Thanksgiving, Clip, his nephew was killed. And one of my peoples, an upcoming rapper from Houston, Cal Wayne, one of his people got killed, too. She was amongst the innocent bystanders. And then I was shot and somebody else was shot. It was just crazy, man.”
It’s never funny at all when the term “when keeping it real goes wrong” actually happens in real life, so I’m wishing Trae a quick recovery.
