Troy Ave's History Of Offensive Tweets Detailed By SPIN

Over a series of years, Troy Ave has asked his Twitter followers if they'd rather have a "mentally retarded son," "gay son," or "whore daughter."

A SPIN magazine contributor recently uncovered what some may consider an offensive series of tweets from Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave. The SPIN contributor, Andrew “Noz” Nosnitsky, discovered that the New York City lyricist has tweeted the same hypothetical question since 2009.

In 2009, Troy Ave asked his followers what’s more embarrassing, having a “visibly gay son” or a “mentally retarded son.” And in October 2012, he posed the same question, but with the addition of “whore daughter” and the hashtag #IfYouHad2PickOneChild.

Troy Ave also asked his “gay son” or “mildly retarded son” question in 2010.

Not one to hold his tongue, Troy Ave recently called out a number of his fellow artists for being “weirdo” rappers. Among those he called out were Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Flatbush Zombies.

“Yeah, Kanye’s a weirdo. It’s a lot of rappers that’s weirdos…I like a lot of Kendrick Lamar’s records too. It’s a lot of weirdo rappers that’s out—It’s mad weirdo rappers. Y’all don’t understand it,” he said during an interview on Hot 97 last November.
