Also Known as "True", "Trues":
Its a common phrase originating in Cleveland made popular by Bone Thugs N Harmony. It basically means what it says, a "true" or "real" thug. To be a true, you have to be true to yourself and not be a fake. You have to be true to the people around, you have to be real about everything and come from the heart about everything. A "tru" doesnt mean a gangsta, becuz there are fake gangsters and there are wannabe gangsters,a "Tru" is completely real.

The phrase became popular specifically on the Eastside of Cleveland on St. Clair Ave. (Tha Clair) Especially in the Glenville neighborhood. It spread all across the ghettos in Cleveland, and into other ghettos across the nation. Its not as popular as it once was, but is still used in Cleveland. It was especially popular with the SCTs (St. Clair Thugs) a huge gang, and organization centralized on St. Clair and E105th St. Bone Thugs are members of the SCTs. Some "Waste 5" (10-5) gang members are also SCTs.

There was also a female rap duo from Cleveland named "II Tru"
