Troy Ave Ft. Raekwon, Prodigy, Noreaga – “New York City”

By: 09.10.13  •  8 Comments

Buzzing Brooklyn emcee Troy Ave makes good on his promise to bring back the classic feel of New York hip-hop with his first single “New York City.”

Featuring golden era gods of the mic Raekwon the Chef, Prodigy, and N.O.R.E., Troy nods to his 90s cohorts while detailing his notoriety in the streets, decrying the southern leanings of his contemporaries, and dismissing the would-be West Coast King of New York, Kendrick Lamar, as a “weirdo.” Rae, Prodigy, and N.O.R.E. each turn in strong performances as well, with hardcore verses befitting Scram Jones’ gritty production.

Look out for Troy Ave’s album New York City, which drops later this month.
