In our first interview with Troy Ave the up and coming NYC emcee starts off talking about the extremely high praise he’s been receiving for his latest project “New York City: The Album”. From there he immediately get’s into how he feels about other artists explaining that when he called Kendrick Lamar “a weirdo rapper” it wasn’t a diss and that they actually dig each others music. He also tells us how he initially felt disrespected when he heard Statik Selektah chose Chance the Rapper for a Complex Magazine “Best New Artists” list, but that the two have since patched things up.
After telling us how he plans on signing to a major label, Troy Ave talks about performing in the RapFix Live end of the year cypher with tons of other rappers and 50 Cents SMS boxing event.
If you haven’t heard him Troy Ave is definitely one of the most confident emcee’s coming out of NYC in a minute and he’s definitely staying true to that old school feeling. Don’t miss it.
