Confirmed: Trae And The Box Both Drop Lawsuits
Saturday, reports began popping up that Trae tha Truth, recent celebrator of Trae Day/Houston Press cover man/upcoming HPMA special guest, had dropped his suit against Radio One and The Box. Though no one from Trae's side has been available for comment - Trae did address the matter cryptically on Twitter yesterday - Radio One's attorney Victor Vital emailed Rocks Off yesterday evening to confirm three things:

- Trae, who filed his lawsuit against Radio One and local hip-hop station The Box for what the rapper's lawyer described as their "attempting to destroy Trae's ability to function in the city," has indeed dropped the suit.
- In turn, Radio One dropped its lawsuit against Trae. According to Vital, they were suing "for sanctions and attorney's fees based upon the frivolous nature of Plaintiff's claims."
- No agreements or compromises were met, meaning the station's policy regarding Trae remains unchanged. The all-encompassing ban is still in effect.
Trae also retweeted a message recently that he had been informed that he was now banned in all 50 states (above), though no further information has been released about that.
