30-year-old emcee Michael Trudell Miller aims to bare his soul through his music. The Chicago native tells the good and bad in his rhymes, not only about his surroundings but also about his own inner struggle and the over-arching struggle of the interplay. Having grown up in a single parent household like many kids Trudell (or Tru for short) has seen a lot and that translates to his art. Raised by his dad after his parents divorced, Tru could have followed the path of his older brothers who were both heavily involved in gangs are currently incarcerated (one for murder and the other for an armed robbery). But instead he chose to put his passion into writing, education and music.
Listeners will feel the realism upon the first listen to Tru’s recently released mixtape A Dream Turned Reality.
