Trae Tha Truth Caught Kicking & Punching Z-Ro In Newly Surfaced Video


Houston, TX – A video of Trae Tha Truth kicking and punching former (Assholes By Nature) ABN partner and cousin Z-Ro has surfaced online.

In a new clip shared by TMZ Hip Hop on Friday (September 2), Trae Tha Truth is shown attacking Z-Ro along with four others. At one point, it looks like one of Trae’s friends snatches Z-Ro’s gold chain.

The video disputes Trae Tha Truth’s version of events that took place in Houston during 50 Cent’s Tycoon weekend.

“It wasn’t no 7-on-1 situation,” he said in an Instagram video on Tuesday (August 30). “It wasn’t no blindside ambush. That’s not what this is. This is family business, internal stuff that’s been going on for 10, 15 years that’s probably been building up and just spilled over into shit.”

He also claimed, “It ain’t no hate for that man. I’m never going to let nobody hurt or harm him.” But, as the video shows, that wasn’t the case.

Speaking to TMZ shortly after the incident, Z-Ro asserted he was ambushed by Trae Tha Truth and his entourage, which the video seems to prove.

“[I was] minding my business and when I walked outside, I’m called over to the side of sprinter van and [Trae] was like, ‘Ay, when you get finished doin’ that, come take this walk with me right quick,” he said. “I was like, ‘You talkin’ to me?’ I had to make sure he was talking to me ’cause I mean, I see you everywhere, you see me everywhere. So when I walked over there, the only thing I saw after that was this [gestures to being punched in the face].”

He continued: “When the video comes on, it’s me making sure, like, you know, I’m not gon’ go home looking like I just fought a football team. I don’t even live my life like that. I got too much positive shit goin’ on, I obviously didn’t expect no shit like that, really.

“I thought it was gon’ be where it’s a change and to be honest, I thought it was a conversation that needed to be had, I guess for the last decade … It would have been something that I would have appreciated, the conversation.”
