Trae said the limited-edition toys are a collaboration with his non-profit organization Angel by Nature.

Angel by Nature aims to help serve and empower underprivileged youth. Trae's charity will be auctioning off the three fully custom, hand-painted Hot Wheels '64 Lincoln Continental convertible "Slabs" at the Hot Wheels Legends Tour event in Spring on September 18.

He also posted a photo rendering of the Hot Wheels packaging, which features a photo of Trae, the Houston skyline and an autograph.
