Tru Life Responds To XXL Milk Carton, “Y’all Made It Seem Like I Was On A Park Bench”
After landing on XXL magazine’s infamous milk carton, Roc-A-Fella rapper Tru Life, has showed face, with a comical video that he posted on the net.
The video starts off with the L.E.S. rapper sitting down in front of a bowl of cereal to XXL’s November issue. Dressed in a black robe and undershirt, Tru takes a look at his face in the magazine and says, “They said I’m missing huh, OK. You know I don’t do these man,” he says lifting up the cartons of milk. I don’t do the milk, I’m lactose intolerant bro.” [Watch Below]
For the reminder of the eleven minute clip, Tru walks around a lavish crib, showing off bedroom complete with sky views, Jacuzzi bathroom, billiard table and safe filled with stacks of money.
“This is how I’m living,” he said. “Y’all thought I was missing. Y’all niggas made it seem like I was on a park bench or something, starving or something, asking a nigga for a dollar. I thought I was fucked up for a second.”
This is not the first we’ve heard from Lizzy though. Last week he appeared on the remix to Gucci Mane’s “That The Recipe,” featuring Roc label mates Memphis Bleek and Uncle Murda. [Listen Here]
Tru was signed by Jay-Z to his Roc-A-Fella sub label, Roc La Familia in 2005. Since Jay’s departure from Def Jam, the imprint has since folded. As of press time it is unclear as to Tru’s status on Def Jam.
Tru Life is mostly known for appearance in QDIII’s poular “Beef” DVD series for his problems with Mobb Deep. He was also involved in war of words with Jim Jones and the Dipset. While never dropping an official album, he released several mixtapes including last year’s “Tru York” hosted by J-Love, as well as his regional hit, “New, New York” produced by soul sample maestro 9th Wonder. – Jesse Gissen
