Of course, nobody will deny it was French Montana who brought the focus back to New York’s hip hop scene. But, in terms of crowning a “king,” every viable candidate has come up short for some reason. When Hip Hop Vibe interviewed Torch, he pretty much said people were overthinking the situation.
Troy Ave has been in the shuffle of the New York hip hop scene for a long time, but he began making moves towards the top this year. He had some convincing collaborations with Fabolous and also Pusha T. With so much nostalgic talk about the city and the hip hop scene, Troy Ave delivered New York City: The Album.
Even though he already stopped by “The Breakfast Club” at Power 105.1, Troy Ave gave DJ Envy a double dose. Talking to him for his Sirius XM show, Troy Ave talked about New York City, Pusha T, and the possibility of him signing a major label deal. A lot of eyes are on Troy Ave after the release of this street album.
