Who is the son of Christian rapper TobyMac, Truett Foster Mckeehan?
Truett Foster Mckeehan, 21, was the eldest son of the McKeehan family, born to rapper Chrisitan TobyMac and Amanda Levy. Truett was born on September 4, 1998, four years after his parents got married. Truett was the elder brother of his four younger brothers: Leo Mckeehan, Judah Mckeehan and the adoptive twins Moses and Marlee.
Truett always had a weakness for God, he was a Christian cookie cutter who struggled to continue believing in God. Mckeehan was a true artist who had already started his career in the music industry like his father, TobyMac.
Mckeehan did not want to be a child star (which could be easy), he always wanted to present himself as a man with scars and a story to tell. His parents admired, respected and encouraged his support for his dream.
Truett expressed himself through the music he wrote, recorded, produced, mixed and designed himself. McKeehan had even released music on various platforms under the names "TRU", "Shiloh" and "Truett Foster". He had also joined forces with his father on several tracks as well. Truett had even presented his first and last concert at the Factory in Franklin, Tennessee last Thursday, October 17, 2019, which was nothing short of electric.
The age of 21 was the perfect age for Mckeehan to begin his career as a man. Mckeehan moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams in the music career. However, his dream of being a successful artist as a man was always a dream, a dream that could not be fulfilled now.
