Troy Ave Says Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar & Flatbush Zombies Are “Weirdo Rappers”


Troy talks about the meaning behind his dope boy lyrics, why he picked N.O.R.E., Raekwon and Prodigy for the song “New York City,” creating his own wave, and why he believes Kendrick Lamar is a “weirdo rapper.”

“I was stating a fact,” Troy said, when asked why he referred to K. Dot as a “weirdo rapper.” “It wasn’t a diss or nothing. That’s like when someone says, ‘Troy Ave is a dark skin rapper.’ It’s a fact. “Right now with social media there’s a lot of groups that’s getting mixed and jelled into one and it doesn’t go like that. With rock music, you have different genres of rock. With rap music you just can’t fuse all types of rap. The basis of rap is from the streets. Every artist of any era in rap history… the biggest artist has always been from the street. Now you got the sub-genres. It’s never been cool to talk about short shorts. You don’t do that. Rap is fly and flashy. That’s what it comes from, the streets,”
