Troy Ave is the seventh artist on the list of the 2014 XXL Freshmen, one of the few street rappers on the list, he does not hold his tongue when it comes to his opinion on his peers being a bunch of weirdos. He also has no issues calling out big names like Kanye West for being a weirdo rapper.
New York rap scene being in a current state of dormancy, Troy Ave has mange to stand out and blow some new life back into NYC. He has received praise from the likes of 50 Cent and Meek Mill for being one of the few street oriented rappers that’s really making noise.
Check out Brooklyn’s own Troy Ave’s 2014 XXL Freshmen freestyle. The BSB leader celebrated his spot on the cover with the release of BSB Vol. 4, and is set to drop his forthcoming mixtape, Bricks In My Backpack 4: Major Without A Deal.
Every re-up, I’m building, another level up
Wanna live life as a pilgrim, I’m not a settler
s**t [?] full of birds, to my hood I’m Columbus
With Cristal, Chris Wallace, and Chris [?]
Gangsta rap, ceramic pack, you pay me I dap
You play me I clap, I’m just statin’ the facts
I wanna be a millionaire so freakin’ bad
Half [?] off crack really did it the most
Never did it to boast, sittin’ amongst the gross
Pitchin’ and gettin’ toast
Countin’ and makin’ jokes, about hatin’ n****s that’s broke
I would kill ‘em but me makin’ a killin’s killin’ ‘em slow (Die!)
New car like a shot to the head (Bah!)
My new b***h like a push off the ledge (Ahh!)
New songs, flex bombs, n****s fed
When I do this million dollar deal n****s gon’ be dead
I’m livin’ takin’ pictures with the Kool Aid smile
A flashy dope dealer, yeah you know my style
Had no hope n***a, I came up real wild
Most of my friends are killers, some of them blew trap
See you in fifteen with good behavior
I don’t make it doin’ rap, I’mma be your neighbor
For now I be that n***a, New York savior
Save your breath debaters and bet your wages, powder!
