Agree with the article 100%. I don't see how he's bringing anything new to the table.
Well damn I didn't think bricks in my backpack was bad :\
You have to know who's writing the articles
People writing opinion articles for clicks
So much is wrong with this article. Troy is irrelevant but you write an article about him? Why not write about J Live or Meyhem's project?
Praising Chinx and French who have been doing basically the same thing subject wise, but with a southern sound.
If this were the 90's he wouldn't have written this article, because there would be repercussions.....
Opportunistic and out of touch bozo. Sounds like the wanna be editor/journalist.
I disagree with pretty much everything he said. Sounds bitter to me.
I enjoy Troy's music but he's definitely not bringing anything new to the table. Just has that late 90s, early 2000s sound and that's why people enjoy it.
I just gotta stop listening to dude's interviews. Sometimes he comes across as trying too hard
" To say that Troy Ave is an opportunistic, out-of-touch bozo who does not actually represent the hopes, dreams, and realities of New York rap fans is to state the obvious. "
Bruh kinda went in
I wouldn't say I 100% agree with the article but he does come off as kinda corny and contrived. I feel the same way about Joey Badass but the hipsters love him tho
Edit: He didn't have to slander my ***** Memph Bleek
Good article Troy Ave is garbage...
Troy Ave is mediocre as mediocre gets. Some of the insults went a little too far but I agree with it overall that he's nothing special and needs to stop proclaiming himself as such.
He doesn't have the genuine appeal of his newer (or sort of newer) peers (ASAP Mob, Chinx DRUGZ, etc), nor the realism and sheer skill of even the lesser heralded vets (Noyd, IM3, Papoose, Saigon, etc). There's so many better options than this poor Tim's Gas Station version of 50/Max B.
The author of this article is the embodiment of everything I hate about American youth.
I can see through all the BS & transparency these new ****** is talking bout. I can tell you right now, we wont get another big artist, I'm talking Drake level, for another 3-4 years
J. Cole was the closest but even he's playing b-side to Drake, Troy Ave is the new Tony Yayo
Thought I was the only one that saw through this dude immediately.
Troy seems like any other big headed lame from NY though. Think of some dudes you know with inflated fake ego's. That's who this guy is.
The other problem is you got weirdo's and nerds writing whatever and getting it published through blogs, and what have you. Rap in general is corny and played out these days.
We got nicki & jay, but ny dont even count them, we dont claim cole, going to st johns dont mean nothing
Its that ny sarcastic cockiness, you gotta be from here to understand it, his music trash but his personality is nothing new
Troy is trash to me only thing hot From NYC from the late 90s/early 00s to me was Cam and Da Roc and he sounds like neither. I was never a g unit fan because I just was never into Dr Dre production post NWA lol
I'd give Troy Ave some props if he could make something as good as Thoughts of a Predicate Felon
