Last year, the kid known to many as Tru Life started a "movement," but has since abandoned the responsibility of carrying out the plan to bring the gritty East Coast sound back to the map. Many have taken notice to the fact that Tru has been quiet, and maybe it's because he's working on his album; since the massive internet blast of his deal with Jive Records, Papoose has fallen back on the consistent mixtape hustle. I'm seeing a trend here. Let's not forget the streets now, my dudes. We're the ones who first embraced you both.
It's cool to want to be remembered as a leading rap patriot. But remember, now, that taking on such a big task to carry upon your shoulders requires keeping the mixtape flow on heavy rotation, not just throwing out a full-length commercial LP. It's been nearly four months since the Jim Jones/Dipset vs. Tru Life saga, and his single, "This is the Life," was good money but is now a joint of the past. Some people might say that mixtapes are irrelevant but on the real, they play an essential role in rounding up your fanbase and broadening your following. So far, since the summertime showdown, there has been no follow-up single, no new mixtape (something a lot of people are asking for), no nothin.'
