Trae tha Truth’s respect for Rockets’ James Harden

Trae recently did an interview with DJ Drama which re-aired on Sirius XM’s Shade 45 on Friday night and had the below to say about the situation.

“It was like I don’t know exactly what’s going on but they’re our sponsors. Harden still ended up having me come out to the baseball game.

We talked and as a man he told me ‘Bro I support you. Man you do more for this city than anybody in this city. I didn’t necessarily know what was going on but now that I do know, I don’t want you to ever feel like you’re by yourself.

Let’s find time to chop it up so we can figure out what we can do to help you’. So with Harden doing that, you can tend to appreciate that because you’ve got some people that won’t even take the time to say ‘hey lets figure out what we can do.'”

This was a classy response by Harden, as it would’ve been easy for him to side with his sponsor and not risk losing them for his future events. The latter is exactly the type of response Trae said he’s grown accustomed to getting ever since the ban over a decade ago.

But Harden instead opted to lend a helping hand to the former A.B.N. artist and to try and use his platform to help Trae get out of the situation. Kudos to Harden and much respect for Trae tha Truth for all the work he does in the community.

Why D'Antoni could sue if he loses job. Next

Hopefully the ban will get lifted soon and we’ll be able to hear his music on the radio again.
