TRU (an abbreviation of The Real Untouchables) was an American hip hop group from Richmond to New Orleans, active from 1992 to 2005. The group originally consisted of rappers on the New Orleans-founded record label, No Limit Records. The members are brothers Master P, C-Murder, and Silkk the Shocker.


The group originally consisted of Master P, C-Murder, Silkk the Shocker. King George, Big Ed the Assassin, Cali G, Sonya C, Chilee Powdah and Milkman, before being shortened to just Master P, C-Murder and Silkk the Shocker. The group's first two releases, 1993's Who's Da Killer? and 1992's Understanding the Criminal Mind, were released independently through In-a-minute Records. In 1995, the group was shortened to include just the three Miller brothers and the trio released their third album True on No Limit Records, which was just getting started. It was followed by Tru 2 da Game in 1997 and Da Crime Family in 1999. However by 2003 No Limit had fell on hard times and was shut down. TRU returned in 2004 on Koch Records, released their sixth and final album, The Truth.

EDIT: The True album still consisted on King George and Cali G. Tru 2 Da Game is the album when it was mainly the Millers.
