Yesterday, Troy Ave dissed Joey BadA$$. The Two New York Emcee’s have been taking shots at each other for a couple of months now. Troy as claimed to be the King of New York, and has been working to “restore the feeling”, when Joey’s album dropped it did decent numbers. 60k first week for an independent rapper is great. It also his debut “B4DA$$”, it was actually a great debut. Troy voiced his opinion saying that he is a true independent artist and Joey is “Fake Independent”, whatever that means. Joey took shots at him on his song “Ready”On the song Joey Raps
“With the 80/20 split my nigga do the math
My nigga Kirk just outsold Troy Ave”
Troy Ave has Jay-z level confidence with Kreayshawn record sales. Troy Aves Record Sales have always been notoriously low. When his album Major without a Deal released in June of last year, The internet had a field day criticizing Troy For his low album sales.
Two Days ago Troy dissed Joey recently on his Song “Badass”. On the song Troy Ass Raps
“Don’t get suicidal like ya friend, here’s a casket
Steez burning in Hell, my burner’s in my belt”
These comments are so disrepecful considering Joeys friend, and fellow Pro Era member committed suicide in 2012. Troy has always been a misinformed clown but disrepecting the dead is disrepecful and distastful. Troy recently called up Sway in the Morning and defended his actions saying “He didn’t pass away. He killed himself. There’s a difference. God gave you life, it ain’t your right to take that. That’s a fact. I got niggas in jail who got life sentences, they might as well be dead. They could’ve traded their life for his…your friends speak to your character.” He also makes it his business to call Steez a “Clown” and a “Bozo”. It would seem logical to stay in your lane and make music that appeals to your dismall fanbase. It would also seem smart not to go at someone who is a much better skilled rapper, but not everyone has common sense. Troy has always had strong opinons on other rappers, quick to voice his opinon, calling Chance the Rapper a “weirdo” even calling Nas “a weirdo” and “a sucka”. I dont understand why Troy has the audacity to go at anyone. I have always felt that troy was decent at best. But going at joey who has buzz that he wish he could have or Nas who is a legend, will get you nowhere. Troy is going Nowhere fast and he better find a better, more tasteful way to build buzz and “revive” his trash career. I’ll pray someone around Troy talks some sense into him and help him make better moves and not make a fool out of himself. Im not even a big fan of Joey or Nas, but someone as trash as Troy should never speak foul of those two. But when you have good sense you cant make common sense out of someone with no sense.
