Arapahoe T.R.U.E.S. (T.R.U.E.S. stands for Trey Real Underground Eastside Soldiers) are a gangsta rap trio from Denver, CO, made up of Mr. Cilla Locc Duce Seven, Lil Assacin aka Sticc9 & Lil E-Locced Insane, who teamed up in the early 90's.
They first hit the scene in the mid-90's with the help of the late DJ Fame, who signed them on his label, Concrete Poetry Records. They released their debut self-titled single in 1996, produced by DJ Fame, and one year later they appeared on the classic Concrete Poetry Records compilation "Mile High Underground Vol. 1".
Then Arapahoe T.R.U.E.S. hooked up with some big names from the Bay Area and Northern California such as C-Bo or Killa Tay and decided to go there to record their sophomore album, titled "Original Rhythm & Hard Core Hip Hop Blues" & which came out in 1999 through Paper Route Records. This album is a Colorado classic with an obvious Bay Area Mobb Music flavor. Production is handled by G-Man Stan, B.C., Boozilla, Killa tay, Bobbie Ford, J-Dubb or Lil 8-Pint and featured guests include B-Legit, Celly Cel, Lunasicc, Killa Tay, Mississippi or Nyke Loc. Bomb album, period.
Arapahoe T.R.U.E.S. didn't release anything else but Lil E-Locced Insane released some solo stuff. Don't know if the other members put out something...
