(AllHipHop News) Troy Ave's proclamation on Twitter that he was the first Brooklyn-based rapper to use heavy drug talk in his raps was met with instant questioning from other users. The critics were mainly asking if the BSB member overlooked the content of BK emcees like Jay Z, The Notorious B.I.G, Maino, and others.
Instead of backing off his claim, Troy doubled down with further tweets and a posting on Instagram. He then began calling out "Internet n****z" that took issue with what he said. The New York City: The Album creator ended his Twitter exchange by highlighting that he managed to find success during an era when street rap was not the main trend in Hip Hop culture.
