Top 5 Troy Ave Songs You Should Already Know And Love

Troy Ave

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Troy Ave spent most of his time recording music and selling his mixtapes on the street before his big break with Def Jam. It wasn’t until he became a member of XXL Magazine’s 2014 Freshmen Class that people began to ask,  “Who is this kid Troy Ave, and what is he about?” His debut, New York City: The Album, debuted at number 47 on the Billboard charts and serves as a representation for an authentic sounding New York as opposed to the more modern style of rap coming from the new generation of New York rappers. Troy Ave’s purpose as a rapper is to give the listeners a “classic” feel and his music does just that.
