HOUSTON – Houston’s “Hometown Hero” Trae Tha Truth can now add “Hot Wheels creator” for his latest addition to the toy collection.

“This is one of my biggest achievements!” he wrote. “This is a collector’s dream! Even crazier for me to have my own toy reppin’ (Houston).”

Three copies of the Hot Wheels slab toy will be made exclusively and will be placed for auction, with proceeds going toward communities in need, according to the rapper.
