Troy Ave been grinding since at least like 05 when he was with Def Jam/Voicez he had videos for that "Rep it with my heart" track and another one so I gotta give him at least a lil credit for even sticking with this rap **** damn near 10 years later
I agree with Ty tho, Troy stay throwing shots at the "weirdos" like Chance the Rapper, etc and I know that rub the hipsters the wrong way so I could see the article stemming a lil bit from that. Hovain tweeted a picture from that dude Instagram from about 2 years ago when he was face to face with Troy I'm sure he had nothing but good stuff to say to him
Like I said tho Joey Badass stuff seems just as forced and corny with that bringing back the 90s **** only difference is the hipsters eat that up.
At the end of the day it's Vice seeing some of the **** they big up I wouldn't even be that mad
Joey b and Troy seem like they listened to old songs and said "hey I'm gonna rap just like this"
If I take Nas flow and use it on beats that he would probably rap on does that make me a good rapper? Like these dudes seem like they are just imitating old rappers. IMO ASAP Ferg one of the best things to happen to NYC in a min. Folks fail to realize we are the "napster/lime wire" generation. Kids in Harlem growing up listening to three 6 mafia and kids in Atlanta growing up on dipset, having a fusion sound is inevitable.
