Rising Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave recently had some choice words for his rap peers, Kendrick Lamar and Chance The Rapper, and they weren't very nice.

In a recent interview with NEHip-Hop.com, he explained had a short-lived disagreement with producer Statik Selektah after he voted Chance The Rapper as "Rookie of the Year" for Complex. which he didn't understand... because he believes Chance is a "drug addict."

"I wasn't feeling Statik the other day man because Complex had a list of some sh**, and 'Rookie of the Year,' he voted for Chance The Rapper over me," he explained. "And I said I'm gonna tell'em when I see'em, 'That sh** you did voting for Chance The Rapper over Troy Ave was corny 'cause I don't see Chance The Rapper at your parties or featuring on your records, you can't be f***ing voting for drug addicts to be Rookie of the Year.'

"The game is twisted and f***ed up. How is a drug addict gonna be at the forefront of rap? That sh** is corny. Basically, he cleared it up, he said there wasn't like a list of names for him to choose from. He didn't pick him over me, they just asked him, 'Who do you vote for?' and they had to send out a name or whatever."

Later, Troy clarified comments about Kendrick, adding that he doesn't mean it as a diss. "Kendrick say he actually f*** with my music heavy," he said. "I wasn't dissing him or nothing, it's like if somebody said 'Troy Ave is a dark skin rapper,' alright, that's the truth. Kendrick Lamar is a weirdo rapper, you know what I mean? That don't mean he don't make good music, he got a few songs that I actually happen to like, but he's a weirdo. Weirdo meaning different, you know what a weirdo is, you know what I mean. That's what it is, it ain't no dissing or nothing."

    Why not call Kendrick different then? Calling him a weirdo is almost passive aggressive. Nobody wants to be called a fucking weirdo. Just like Troy wouldn't want to be called a fat ass.

    Chance the rapper may be a drug addict but he just became the rookie of the year according to The Source Magazine...that counts for something.

    Yoooo who the fuck is this guy lol? Chance the Rapper got Rookie of the year cause some people actually know who he is and he made a name for himself this year. I mean, even if you don't like his music, which is pretty good, im sure if you listen to hip hop you've heard of him. Judging from the comments before me nobody knows who you are. Nigga, make a name for yourself before you start calling people drug addIcts and weirdos you clown.
