Trae Tha Truth continuously proves that he’s Houston’s hero.

Recently a video went viral showing an elderly woman getting robbed at gunpoint in front of her Houston home.  The video shows the woman walking toward her stairs when a car stopped and a man hopped out of the passenger seat, attempting to rob the woman.  She threw her purse and things at the man when he demanded money from her.

“I haven’t had no sleep,” said Tonya Robertson, the victim as reported by Click2Houston. “I haven’t been to work.” She says didn’t know the suspect but had a message for him.

“I hate that you done this to me because I don’t harm nobody,” Robertson said. “I’m not a violent person and I just want justice.”

Houston’s hometown hero, Trae Tha Truth is not only known for his music but also for his positive impact on the community, his activism, and his philanthropic acts within the city. Once the video reached social media, he professed his disgust that was in the video and immediately wanted to help.  He later posted how he felt about the situation while on his way to find the woman to offer his help.

“Nothing about that is street, man,” he said in the video. “That ain’t what’s up. We don’t touch women, we don’t touch kids. We stick to the code. You gotta have some type of real gangsta about yourself. Don’t do that to women, man. Don’t prey on the weak, that’s not how we move.

“That video really, really ran me hot, man. I ain’t never gonna be quiet; I’m gonna speak up. I’m actually gonna go pull up on her and let her know she ain’t alone and there’s real ones out here that’s gonna stand for her and other elders and other kids. Definitely prayers up for her. About to actually go find her now. I’ma make it my business to do that today.”
