Houston’s hometown hero Trae Tha Truth is at it again after the rapper, who has a history of helping those in his community, successfully tracked down a woman after seeing a troubling video of her being robbed at gunpoint.
According to CW 39 Houston news station, a woman, identified by Houston police as Tonya Robertson Rogers, was coming home from work in the early morning hours when she was mugged outside her home in southwest Houston.
In the clip, a small black four-door sedan, possibly a Hyundai Elantra, drives up, and a masked person, only described as a Black male, from 5-foot-8 to 6-foot, wearing a maroon hoodie, blue jeans and white shoes, jumps out. The man had a gun and demanded Rogers give him money.
She eventually throws all her belongings at the suspect, but that isn’t enough. He reportedly pats Rogers down before grabbing her bag and taking off. The outlet reported that the woman was left so shaken from the encounter that she went and purchased a firearm immediately afterward.
Trae, whose real name is Frazier Othel Thompson III, took to his Instagram account where he shared a photo of himself standing beside Rogers, who appeared to be holding an envelope in her right hand.
“I Made It To Her….. I Made Sure She know That Real Ones Don’t Stand By Or Approve What Happen To Her…. And Also Blessed Her…,” the 41-year-old emcee wrote in his caption. Later, the “Here I Go” emcee implored his one million online followers to “protect our own.” He continued, “I Told Her She Should Create Her Own personal Go fund because a lot of people want to help her….”
After hearing the news, the “I’m On 2.0” emcee shared a video of himself explaining the situation condemning the man’s actions in the clip. “Nothing about that is street. How we came up, you don’t touch women, you don’t touch kids.” He said at the time. “You don’t prey on the weak, that’s not how we move,” he added.
He said he would visit the woman to “let her know she ain’t alone and there’s real ones that’s gone stand here for her,” and other vulnerable people.
Social media users applauded the star for his efforts, including online personality Amber Wanger who wrote, “You are heaven sent bro FR! Keep doing the Lords work!!” Another person commented, “You’re a REAL ONE FOR SURE!! The streets need G’s like you. My heart broke hearing the terror in her voice.” That person added, “PROPS TO U G!!”
“Man it don’t get no REALLER than that,” a third person wrote. “It’s time to take da streets back standing on solid and righteous morals and dealing with the ones going against the grain with no remorse.”
