Trae tha Truth Drops Lawsuit Against Local Radio Station

Rapper Trae tha Truth and Houston radio station KBXX 97.9 The Box have dropped their respective lawsuits against each other, following a heated three-month feud.

The Texas rapper originally filed a suit against the Radio One-owned station in May, claiming that it had unfairly banned his music from airplay. “I would not have filed a lawsuit, but when other people started being hurt by this ban, I knew I had to stand up,” Trae explained in a statement. “I just could not let any more people suffer and be punished by the radio station over this ridiculous vendetta.”
The Box justified their ban by accusing Trae of inciting violence at his 2009 ‘Trae Day’ festivities, which left eight teenagers injured. During a May 14 hearing, a local judge rejected Trae’s charge and the radio station later filed a countersuit to his claim.

Events took a turn for the worse when KBXX DJ Brandi Garcia claimed she was fired from the station in June after playing a song featuring Trae tha Truth at an unaffiliated event. But now, Houston’s Fox 26 News reports that both parties walked away from their lawsuits on Thursday (July 22) just in time for the annual ‘Trae Day’ celebration.

According to Trae’s lawyer, Warren Fitzgerald, no official settlement was made in the case.
