Troy Ave is not afraid to speak his mind. The Brooklyn emcee—one of the best-dressed rappers in NYC—recently posted a pic on Instagram showing off his custom Jesus Shuttlesworth jersey, matching Nike Air Force Ones, and Versace socks. But the actual highlight of the post wasn't the photo—it was the caption that fired turbo-shots at today's rap game and their love for Pyrex and leather. Troy also went on to call rappers late for all of a sudden adopting Versace and Coogi into their wardrobes. Below is the entire caption/essay/rant:

Does "Harry Powder" have a point? Troy has definitely exhibited a sense of style over the past year that deserves props for sticking to what he loves and not trend-riding, but this is a pretty big bomb to drop on a good amount of stylish rappers. Do you support Troy Ave on this, or is this just standard hating?
