Troy Ave Compares Rappers To Police

"A lot of [rappers] who they wasn't nobody, it's like the cop syndrome," Troy Ave says.

Directly after performing at the BACARDI Flavor event at Rucker Park, Troy Ave spoke with Baller Mind Frame about his transition into the public sphere. Explaining that he’s taking “it in stride,” Troy compared rappers with new-found success to police officers abusing their authority.

“I’m doing everything I said I would do,” he said. “As far as the stardom, I’m used to this shit. I’m not like another type of rapper who they was fucking nobody’s or they had no type of success. I really lived all the shit I talk about. So, I always had mad women, fly cars, Rolex watches, I was popular in high school, shit like that. Now with Rap it’s just a little bit more. It’s just like a spotlight on you. So instead of one hundred people knowing your name it’s a hundred thousand. I just take it in stride, stay humble, stay working. I don’t let nothing get to me. I don’t be on no cocky shit. I might come across cocky in my music or whatever but I always take pictures with people, I always kick it if somebody wanna talk some shit with me. A lot of niggas who they wasn’t nobody, it’s like the cop syndrome. If a cop was a sucker growing up in school and they got beat up and bullied, when they get to have that authority, they abuse they power, certain cops. Just like with certain artists, they get that authority or celebrity and they abuse that. I don’t abuse it ‘cause I always been a hood star, a ghetto star. I know how to deal with it. I just take it in stride.”

During the interview, Troy Ave also broke down his upcoming schedule and revealed plans for several new releases before the year is through.

“You know your dope boy Troy Ave gon’ keep on dropping consistent fire,” he said. “Elevating on these niggas. I got BSB Vol. 5 on the way. Shit gon’ be fire. Everything I say I do. I’m dropping my album, Major Without A Deal/Bricks In My Backpack Vol. 4. It’s gonna be better than New York City: The Album...BSB Vol. 5 with the L.A. Leakers, that’s coming in the next couple of weeks.”

Again retracing his musical influences, the Brooklyn emcee alluded that his environment has had a bigger impact than anything else.

“One of my influences definitely 50 Cent,” he said. “Definitely Jay Z. Biggie Smalls. Tupac. Young Jeezy, Ross as far as newer influences. Master P with his hustle, he was talking his street talk. But my main influence is my environment. That’s what makes me different. I ain’t influenced by what new record or what new artist is at the top of the charts. I’m influenced by what’s in my environment.”

    You dont need good beats and rhymes to be a succesful rapper, just convince white suburban teens that you are an authentic criminal and they will most likely support you, they could care less about the actual sound of the music, they want to live a ghetto fantasy through Black super heros.

      bruthadee on the other hand doesnt care about authenticity or truth in his raps hes willing to listen to snitches, cops, liars and faggots as long as it sounds good in his hooptie.

    BTW I googled all that shit about how much is in a brick of cocaine. If anyone knows exactly the math please feel free to add
  • Huffington Bush
    It must be story time for this nigga. he must think we a bunch of 4yr olds all huddled around the teacher reading some fictional book, Why you lying troy ave. " I always had mad women, fly cars, Rolex watches, I was popular in high school, shit like that. " Fraudulency should be a considered a serious crime in the rap game. did this fool forget his past interviews and what he said in them. Nigga power 105.1 interview he revealed he wasnt getting money and he worked at dominoes pizza as a delivery guy. he even said he had to wait on a car crash settlement so he can shoot his low budget videos. ROLEX my nigga? i watched some of his videos and most of them he didnt even have a watch on or he was wearing a gshock and videos for brick in my back pack 3 he was wearing the low end gold plated movado watch that cost $300. I got the same watch. STOP THE LIES AND JUST BE HUMBLE WITH IT. So lets do the math here with this nigga. He claimed he really had bricks in his back pack taking either the LIRR or NJ PATH moving weight from hood to hood dressed like he was coming from basketball practice. but depending on the size of a brick of cocaine a key is 1000 grams hence a kilo gram and if grams are being sold in the range of $50-$70 u can easily make 50k give or take off a key minus 22k from wholesale and you got lil play money but this fool keeps telling 10 different versions of his life before rap cause if he claims he was that nigga moving weight you wouldnt be working at dominoes and waiting on settlement money. JUST SAYIN

    So apparently Troy Ave, in 2009, keep tweeting the same question over and over again; "Would you rather have a gay 14 year old son or a mildly retarded one?". So this dude is hiding the fact that he's either gay or retarded.

      oh word? i just saw some more of his old tweets the other day and in 2009 he was tweeting "I was watchin the Keri Hilton Video Ladies if u had 2 Pick 1. Kanye Or Neyo?" what kinda gay ass question is that?
    • Rondo Nig
      You're missing the big picture, fool! He was tweeting this shit while he was driving his badass 2007 Toyota Camry on the way to see his 205 lb chick. Don't hate on Troy because he's paying notes on his Rolex.

    I am starting to really hate Troy Ave because he should just rap only and not go where Kanye West is failing at- and that is SPEAKING at all...He is picking up where kanye left off and it really diminishes the music because the music says everything he can't . Just hire a publicist

      Kanye never left off.

      I swear a few months ago he went on a long ass twitter rant about fake rappers lying in their music and shit and it sounded like he was speaking directly about Ross, then 3 weeks laters hes instagramming pictures with him.
    • HUH
      I Knew it!! This article was begging for somebody to mention Ross.
    • Anonymous
      Troy is a black man form the streets so his opinion of Ross is based on street knowledge which is the opposite of a white nerd online who wouldnt have a clue about Ross being a hustler.

      to a certain extent yes but it helps when you can back it up with some accomplishments if you wish to be taken seriously. he comes off as delusional.

    He is using the same formula as Ricky Rozay. Interesting to see if it works for him.

    Who is gassin' this nigga? He's very mediocre, and he's cold frontin' just like the rappers he's talkin' about. "I was really popular in high school". That must be why you still act like you in high school. Lookin' like Lil' Cease and Young Joc had a baby together and shit.

    "I really lived all the shit I talk about. So, I always had mad women, fly cars, Rolex watches, I was popular in high school, shit like that." We don't believe you bro. You were signed to Def Jam 10 years ago and put out a single or 2 with videos before they dropped your ass and sent you back to the projects.
