Tru Life was once a protege of Jay Z. He built up a big buzz in NYC around 2007 and got signed to Roc-La-Familia soon after. Tru's most memorable moments came from his Tru York mixtape when he waged war against The Diplomats.
In 2009, he got into an altercation that left a man dead by a stab wound. He was sentenced to eight years in 2011. Fast forward to 2016, Tru Life just got released and he's already plotting his return.
"I was sentenced to eight years for something I didn’t do, but that’s another story,” Tru Life tells DJ Prostyle. “I got a documentary getting ready to come out about my life. I’m dealing with a lot of different people right now. I’m in the middle of talks with HBO and all kind of different big networks but it’s definitely going to be on a major network. We actually filming right now as I’m talking."During his time locked up, a lot has changed in the world. Thus, Tru Life feels like he has to catch up and get hip to the new things we have. "As far as technology and music, everybody is living in the Stone Age over there," he says about prison, "so we really couldn’t really keep up, but I would try as much as I could."
Hopefully, Tru Life is able to get back on his feet, produce some worthwhile music, and get a second shot at a buzz.
