In a culture where sex, drugs, politics, violence and money dominate the music industry, T.R.U.B. brings the TRUTH in an incredible sound based on what’s hot without conforming to unenthusiastic Hip-Hop trends.
“I produce real music that conveys an image of hope, pride, and fun with an emphasis on hard work and effort that leads to overcoming life’s challenges,” says T.R.U.B.
This Memphis, TN based rapper is not your average Hip Hop artist. Born Lawrence Johnson in Alexandria, VA, T.R.U.B. grew up in Memphis, where his passion for Hip-Hop music grew.
He realized his immense talent and started perfecting his artistry at an early age.

Since then, T.R.U.B. has been grinding hard to show the people that his incredible skills and his undeniable flow capture the essence of the Hip-Hop music. With the release of “The Appetizer,” “The Taste Test,” & “The Recipe” he was given the opportunity to tour with some of the biggest names in hip hop.
T.R.U.B. is simply not your average rapper; he’s a lyricist with a unique style that sets him apart from the competition. Although, T.R.U.B. has already had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with industry heavyweights like Juicy J, Project Pat, Bruno Mars, Future, Gorilla Zoe, Plies and Yung Ralph; DJ’s, clubs and radio stations are recognizing T.R.U.B. as a force in Hip Hop based on his on own hustle and skills.
T.R.U.B.’s goal is to bring good music to a global audience. He’s blessed with talent; pop star charisma, gangster rapper bravado, a fast-exploding fan base, and lyrics that transform rap into a movement.
His latest project, Armageddon, was release on Halloween of 2015. It encompasses a diversity of styles and influences of what the upcoming rapper has distilled over the years. Trub joined forces with one of the biggest rising producers of this era, Marcus Brandon. Marcus and Trub have collaborated to create a classic sound for Armageddon and started their own dynasty label “The Elite Society.” With Armageddon, T.R.U.B. returns to the streets where his career once started and delivers a project with refreshing vitality. His fans will certainly notice a new yet familiar T.R.U.B. Sound. And now Trub is taking the world by storm with his new smash single ” She Fell In Love ”.
