Troy Ave Speaks On His Friendship With Tony Yayo, Calls Chance The Rapper A Drug Addict, His Convo With 50 Cent, 'NYC' Album & Kendrick Lamar Being A "Weirdo" [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Troy Ave has been at the forefront of helping to bring the classic feel back to the New York rap scene. His recent New York City album and White Christmas 2 mixtape are full of heaters from track one until the last song.

 

He recently chopped it up with NEHip-Hop about his friendship with Tony Yayo, meeting and chopping it up with 50 Cent, Statik Selektah, Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar his New York City album and more.

 

 

During the interview Tony Yayo calls and tells Troy he's got some business for him.

That's my n*gga. My n*gga Yayo always call me with the money man. Shout out to Tony Yayo, that's my homie for real.

 

 

On his New York City album

The reception has been everything I thought and more. It's been amazing, nothing short of greatness. It's loved all across the board and it's been met with nothing but exclamatory remarks. Like, the best work out of new York in over a decade. I brought the city back from the dead.

 

Chance The Rapper

 

On Statik Selectah and Chance The Rapper

I wasn’t feeling Statik the other day man because Complex had a list of some s***, and rookie of the year, he voted for Chance The Rapper over me. And I said I’m gonna tell’em when I see’em, ‘That sh*t you did voting for Chance The Rapper over Troy Ave was corny ‘cause I don’t see Chance The Rapper at your parties or featuring on your records, you can’t be f*cking voting for drug addicts to be rookie of the year. The game is twisted and f*cked up. How is a drug addict gonna be at the forefront of rap? That sh*t is corny. Basically, he cleared it up, he said there wasn’t like a list of names for him to choose from. He didn’t pick him over me, they just asked him, ‘Who do you vote for?' and they had to send out a name or whatever.

 

 

On meeting 50 Cent at the SMS Promotions "Big Apple Boxing" event.

Shout out to 50 Cent. We chopped it up before and after the fight. That was just dope. When you get to chop it up with someone you admired growing up for what they did rapping and for the inspiration they gace to the streets. And when you actually meet them they like Yo, I f*ck with what you're doing.' That sh*t mean a lot.

 

 

On Kendrick Lamar being a "weirdo"

Kendrick say he actually f*** with my music heavy. I wasn’t dissing him or nothing, it’s like if somebody said ‘Troy Ave is a dark skin rapper,’ alright, that’s the truth. Kendrick Lamar is a weirdo rapper, you know what I mean?  That don’t mean he don’t make good music, he got a few songs that I actually happen to like, but he’s a weirdo. Weirdo meaning different, you know what a weirdo is, you know what I mean. That’s what it is, it ain’t no dissing or nothing.

Just been to check who the hell is this Troy Ave... The New York mixtape ain't even attention grabbing. Plus... Dude's a copy of Mase in some measure. He needs to first make a hot tune before calling one of the hottest rapper of the moment a weirdo. You got something to say? don't call names just cause you can't compete... rap it up, dogg.
