New York's Troy Ave has had a busy year, generating attention (and the occasional rookie of the year nod) as a new standard-bearer for his city. The notice has only grown in the wake of Troy releasing his album, appropriately titled New York City: The Album. Tonight, while sipping on champagne in the Hot 97 studio, he debuted a new song, "Do It," featuring Styles P, on Funkmaster Flex's radio show.
He keeps up the talk about repping for New York, offering lines like "I'm the biggest thing out my city in the past 10 years" and "I look and sound like New York, all my beats do not/These rappers looking [edited] tryna find Young Chop." He adds, "So you don't tell me you rep New York and you like what I bring/I heard that song when you was trying to be like 2 Chainz" and takes a shot at Drake, claiming, "I did R&B too, but mine was rap and bricks."
He also shared a freestyle on Hot 97 over Cam'ron's "The ROC." Check out his comments on "Do It' and listen to both songs below:
