Troy Ave looks to bring back New York Rap with, “New York City: The Album.” If you like what you hear you can buy the deluxe version on iTunes.
I will admit, I was a doubter. This is a great mixtape! It captured the essence of 90% NY Hip Hop without being dated or gimmicky
I’m sure a great majority of ny is proud to see him come up but i have to say has past work is blahh blahh now this work here shows improvement Lyricism is average but a great average.
In my thoughts i could careless for another street boy dope boy song or life style showcase and from his recent interviews I see he believes people such as joey bada$$ or kendrick are weirdos but he states it as not a diss this shows that he has no knowledge of ART but he can elevate. I see his personality = trash
he is not the best rappers but this album was nice and it’s a improvement from his past joints.dude has a vintage nyc feeling and the beats did not sound like the same trap stuff i get tired of hearing with the same freatures French montana,ross,meek.
i think that just comes from the young generation and hipsters who would consider people like Kendrick lamar,j.cole,drake great mc’s but if u were in 93 people like them lyric wise come a dime a dozen that especially being from nyc
Yeah, I had to come back and comment on this album… Troy did very well, I think he should’ve left off maybe 3 songs and the sound quality of each track ranges a bit but this is a very good album.
