Trae Tha Truth‘s decision to launch his first feature film on Tubi is paying off — he’s already plotting a sequel after earning the praise of some high-level peers!!!
TMZ Hip Hop sat down with the Houston rapper fresh off the movie, “Sole” dropping on the free streaming service — it’s a modern hood comedy set in his hometown he says is getting compared to Ice Cube‘s cult classic chuckler, “Friday.”
Trae’s real-life friends and fam fill out the cast, and he stars as “Eddie” … a local sneaker boutique owner who gets involved with neighborhood thugs over some money they assume he stole — and, as they say, hilarity ensues!
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Trae tells us he knew Tubi’s known to make low-budget films, but says it’s also home to legit cinematic art … and he wanted to contribute to that quality.
He says the streamer’s execs were floored by the reception “Sole” is already getting — and Martin Lawrence even gave him a ringing endorsement after seeing the film!!!
Such a glowing cosign would make anyone dive headfirst into acting and Trae’s already 2 steps ahead — next up is a full-length film of his animated ABN series, and a flick called “Space Trap” … both are heading straight to Tubi.
Don’t worry, Trae’s not abandoning music — he’s just diversifying his portfolio!!!
