Meet ‘Trufe’, a rapper, singer and songwriter, who’s influenced by a wide range of artists such as Jay-Z, Tupac, and Stevie Wonder. He’s been quoted as saying, "Music is honestly an art form that I believe you must respect first to truly be great at it; because for you to love something, you must respect it. " Trufe classifies himself and his musical genre as self-entitled "Space Age Soul and Hip Hop (S.A.S.H. Music) ." Based in hip hop, his sound is very culture forward, political, lyrically focused and it has an honesty and a universal relatability immersed in it, that is often missing in a lot of today's music.
