Trus Real


Trus (Pronounced like Trust) Real is a Hip Hop activist in the D(M)V area originally from Paris.  He always found himself in the artistic field with an original dream to be a cartoonist.  With his natural talent to draw, Trus first entered Hip Hop as a graffiti artist.  He then picked up b-boying for 10+ years, and then finally picked up the microphone as an emcee which he is now pursuing as a career choice.  With his experience and network he built along the years, he has participated in, performed at, hosted, and personally coordinated many art related events in and out of state/the country.  This includes B-boy Battles, Rap Showcases, Open Mics, and even the occasional party. Trus is strong on the mic and uses his voice to continue to spread the gospel of the culture he is so passionately active in.
