The feud between Joey Bada$$ and Troy Ave has been the topic discussion this week, following the release of a diss track by Troy… which in response, Joey dug up a number of old tweets from his rival dissing NYC rap legend Nas.
Posted between 2009-2011, Troy Ave calls Nas “weirdo” and “wack”. “Yea i listened to 2 that nas record and its wack. only thing retro thats not cool is RETRO Flows,” he says in one tweet.
Joey posted screenshots of the tweets, along with his own commentary. “This brotha been buggin,” he writes. “Get him TF outta here…. No mercy for this man.”
The Twitter investigation follows the release of a diss track from Troy Ave called “Bad Ass”. On it, he disses Joey, but many felt he crossed the line when namechecked late Pro Era rapper Capital Steez, who committed suicide in 2012. “I got friends that’s killing shit, he got friends killing themselves,” Troy Ave raps.
In response, Troy Ave says that he doesn’t have to answer to nobody.
