Rappers to Keep an Eye on in 2012 – Troy Ave

To be perfectly honest, NY hasn’t really had a great run the past couple of years.  The birthplace of rap has had a tough time outside of the big names like Jay.  Recently though, New York has been getting some shine.  New rappers like Mr. Mothafucking Exquire are bringing back a true, gritty New York sound.

Troy Ave continues along this path.  You hear this song and you know it is New York – that is what New York was really missing.

This track is just grimey – like hoodies and timb boots in the club grimey.  Welcome back New York.
