Entrepreneur Tray Chaney, The "Entertainment Renaissance Man", In Sister 2 Sister Magazine
He acts (HBO's The Wire), writes (autobiography THE TRUTH YOU CAN'T BETRAY),raps (mixtape JACK OF ALL TRAYS and album coming soon) and along the way inspires, but as Sister 2 Sister Magazine says in their April 2011 issue, Tray Chaney is "working to become an Entertainment Renaissance man"---and that is just the beginning.
"I'm at a really good place in my life," says Chaney as he reflects on the feature in the national magazine in stores worldwide now. "I have everything I could ever want going for me right now, and the success in my career is truly icing on the cake."
The actor/author/recording artist is sharing page 73 of the magazine with the love of his life: his son. "All of this is really for him," says Chaney. "I am glad that he can be a part of what is going on right now. He sees what I am doing, and I let him know that all of this is because of my love for him."
Chaney is sharing that love with others as well by giving back whenever he can. He remains the national spokesperson for The Write Stuff literacy campaign and its Take Time To Read initiative, and he is often seen visiting schools and sharing the message of pursuing your dreams.
"It's important that I use celebrity to achieve something good," says Chaney. "That's the only way that it really has meaning. You can't keep it all to yourself, and you have to let the young people out there know that good things can come their way if they work hard and believe in themselves."
In the Sister 2 Sister feature he also talks about his big screen role in the movie Streetz due out in April 2011. What's next? "The skies is the limit," says Chaney. "I'm not stopping. In fact, I'm just really getting started."
