Whether people want to admit it or not, 50 Cent inspired a new generation of aspiring rappers. Overcoming every possible obstacle in front of the whole world, there were witnesses. On the other side of the Brooklyn bridge, Troy Ave was there soaking all of it in, getting motivated to start his own career.
Troy Ave has openly compared his BSB movement to 50 Cent’s G-Unit and he has formed a strong alliance with Tony Yayo. Even though he is from Brooklyn and the entire G-Unit movement is Queens based, Troy Ave likens himself to a new generation 50 Cent. The streets have embraced him accordingly.
Recently, Troy Ave attended one of 50 Cent’s boxing events and he had a chance to meet with the man himself. This photo can be viewed as a passing of the torch from the former king of New York to the potential future king of New York. Regardless, the photo’s caption shows how Troy Ave admires 50 Cent.
