Z-Ro claimed in an interview with FOX 26 reporter and host of Isiah Factor Uncensored, Isiah Carey, that he was lured away from a restaurant by Trae tha Truth before he was "sucker-punched" and attacked by several people. 

"It's Trae tha Truth. Yeah, he asked me to, after I was finished doing what I was doing with a fan, to come and speak to him," Z-Ro said. "So, I went over there with the intentions of speaking, and speech is not where we're going. That's not what took place, speech. So, it was a lot of, like I said, I was sucker punched and then I was jumped after the sucker punch.

FOX 26 reached out to Trae tha Truth, who declined an on-camera interview but shared his own side of the story on social media. 

A day after the interview with Z-Ro aired, memes and rumors were shared across social media about their conversation. One of the rumors involved a flyer circulating on social media claiming the two rappers would be headlining a celebrity boxing match. 


While the Mo City Don rapper did acknowledge the idea of a celebrity boxing match, nothing was ever made official. In fact, toward the end of the discussion, Z-Ro expressed interest in a possible celebrity boxing match, where he and Trae tha Truth would raise money for a good cause. 


Despite an apparent checkered history the two rappers have, Z-Ro noted the video surfacing had only made things worse between them. 

"I did proposition him through other people - like, 'hey, man, if you have a problem, you know, let's do it for the good cause,'" he said. "My momma died of lupus, so I was like, man, 'let's do it for charity; one-on-one private or, let's get a bag for it, you know, do a real celebrity-' I mean, because I mean, that's what was cracking, like celebrity boxing matches, you know what I'm saying? So I'm like, this way, you never got to say nothing about me ever again." 

"We get in the ring, do what we do and after that, you have to say nothing about me no more. It's just - it's done," Z-Ro concluded. "You know, you donate your piece to whoever, I donate mine to lupus, and other than that, I go back to promote my album Pressure."
