Since being released from prison in 2016, Tru Life has done his best to stay the straight and narrow and convince his fans that although he served the time he did not commit the gang assault crime that he was convicted of back in 2009. Before his sentence, Tru Life had just signed to JAY-Z’s Roc Nation La Familia affiliate but during his time and jail he was released from the label in which he clarified that his relationship with JAY-Z is still in good standing but their business and music relationship no longer exists.
Fortunately, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Yesterday [September 6th], Tru Life took to Instagram to announce officially being signed to Future’s FreeBandz label. In his first post he stated, “Nothing bigger than the bird.” #FreeBandz #MogulTree
In a second post which has since been deleted, he stated, “Today is a new beginning , I am proud to announce my new deal with Sony Epic and Free Bandz. When everyone else turned their backs on me. My brother @future was the only one who stepped up.”
Being out of jail for a little over a year, Tru Life has since collaborated with Rick Ross on “Bag For It” in which achieved over 2 million views, created social media traction, and even appeared on Revolt TV’s The Breakfast Club radio show. His steadfast commitment to the music industry and his undeniable talent has payed off yet again. Congrats to Tru Life.
