Albums We Love: Troy Ave-New York City:The Album


Too often rappers sacrifice the integrity of their music to step outside of the box and create something innovative and new. While innovation is an essential aspect of the growth of hip hop, staying true to formulas that have worked in the past has never been a bad option. Enter Troy Ave. The New York rapper stays true to the roots of the early 2000s east coast sounds, channeling his inner 50 Cent/Dipset on New York City: The Album. There is nothing groundbreaking about this album, yet it returns to the sounds we thoroughly enjoyed a decade ago. It serves as a refreshment to the “groundbreaking” swag rap currently being jammed down our throats. Respect.
