Trae The Truth and Mike Jones were involved in an altercation on Monday night (August 11) in Houston, Texas during the 2008 Ozone Awards. Jones was videotaped wiping blood from his face while exchanging words with the fellow Houston MC. “The point is, don’t come disrespecting the city,” Trae told K Gee afterwards. “You don’t even ride for the city. When people was sh**ting on Houston, like Houston done fell off, that n**** ducked up, curled and went some where. I stayed fighting, like ‘N**** this H-Town.’ Everybody respect that about me. That’s why they put me at the forefront of this city bro.” Jones told G-Man’s show on Houston radio station 97.9 The Box he was sucker punched by Trae, who apparently was upset Jones referred to himself as the “President” of Houstohn.
