Fresh of the release of his latest studio album, Tha Truth, Pt. 2, veteran rhymer Trae Tha Truth is following behind Kendrick Lamar and Beyonce as he releases his true-to-life visual for “Children of Men.”
The video portrays the hardship of a young kid’s life from childhood to adulthood and the pressures that ultimately led him to suicide.
“The storyline is about a kid that came from an orphanage, just dealing with life, getting caught up, dealing with the pressure and at the end the pressure becomes so much that he kills himself,” Trae told Complex. “These stories happen multiple times when you come from the struggle, so it was real relatable, and that’s why the story was told so well.”
Trae tapped J. Cole and singer/songwriter Ink to deliver cautionary tales of the struggle and how so many men perish under the perils of the street life.
