Rapper TRAE THA TRUTH reportedly will file a lawsuit against RADIO ONE Top 40/R KBXX (97.9 THE BOX)/HOUSTON, citing "a consistent pattern of business disparagement, conspiracy and tortious interference," reports THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE. which writes "TRAE, whose real name is FRAZIER THOMPSON III, is planning to sue for general damages to his reputation, character, standing in the community, mental suffering, loss of professional opportunities, performance revenue and record royalties." He will hold a press conference TODAY (5/5) to announce the filing of the lawsuit.
The issue between TRAE and the station stems from an alleged "ban" of TRAE's music after the rapper was involved in an on-air altercation with MADD HATTA Morning Show DJ NNETE. TRAE then mentioned NNETE's weight in a mixtape.
Also named in the suit were GM DOUG ABERNATHY and PD TERRI THOMAS.
