Troy Ave isn’t the least bit converse about what anybody has to say about his Capital Steez diss in his latest track, “Bad Ass“.
As we know the two Brooklyn Rappers, Troy Ave and Joey Bad Ass have been taking subliminal shots at each other over who is the true “independent” artist. Joey dropped the track “Ready” where he mentioned Troy’s less than impressive sales saying, ” With an 80/20 split to do the math, my nigga Kirk Knight just out sold Troy Ave”. Then Troy came out with “Bad Ass” in which he mentioned the death of Pro Era member Capital Steez, “Steez burning in hell, my burners in my belt/I’m really killing shit, you niggas killing yourself/ fucking wierdos, off the roof, “Steer clear, yo!”
Since dropping “Bad Ass”, Troy spent the rest of the day receiving backlash from people on Twitter, as well as other rappers including ASAP Twelvyy.
Troy called in to Sway in the Morning to explain his reasoning for dropping the line in the first place. According to Troy, he hadn’t even heard “Ready”, he just heard the lyrics online and decided that him clapping back was more than fair. But did he go to far? Troy doesn’t think so:
“He didn’t pass away. He killed himself. There’s a difference. God gave you life, it ain’t your right to take that. That’s a fact. I got niggas in jail who got life sentences, they might as well be dead. They could’ve traded their life for his…your friends speak to your character. I got friends that’s killing shit, his friends are killing themselves. We not on the same level. Don’t play with me.”
What do you think? Did Troy take things to far left? Let us know below.
