(AllHipHop News) Troy Ave is one of the rising stars coming from the new New York City Hip Hop scene. The Brooklyn emcee has even garnered comparisons to fellow NYC rapper 50 Cent.
Hot 97 interviewed 50, and he was asked about Troy working with former G-Unit members Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks. Even though he says it was not a “shot,” 50’s response did come off as a compliment and diss wrapped in one.

“[They sound] good. They actually like his hypemen,” said 50. “Who are you looking to listen to on a Troy Ave record? So those guys are there to just support.”
While, the creator of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ labeled Banks and Yayo as “supporting cast,” 50 does go on to acknowledge Troy and his movement.
“I like the idea of Troy Ave. I would want it to work. You see what I’m saying? Just because I would want something to happen in the city period. But, in reality I see a lot of me in Troy Ave,” added 50.
