One of the hardest working rappers is back with his new album. That’s right people! Pastor Troy is here and releasing Still Troy, which packs a powerful punch of crunked up beats and cool hooks wrapped in his southern-istic flow. This album definitely delivers non-stop hard pounding beats with a chill vibe that represents for the South. In this album, Pastor Troy reminds us that he is a force to be reckoned with and takes on a ride and shows us why.
Starting off strong with From The Top, it is only but an introduction into what’s next. Can You See Me cements his arrivals and lets all his haters know that he’s here to stay. He then goes into a catchy track, Get Out, that will have you dancing and repping your hood. He keeps it real as the beats slow down with I’m Just Chillin and Cab I Holla, featuring Ralph. He goes back into gangsta mode with that southern drawl on Ain’t Gangsta No More and Represent Dat.
With the help from Ralph on the hook, Pastor Troy borrows a beat from fellow Atlanta native Usher on I’m A Gangsta as he and Mesha Right drops their feelings on that gangsta love. He further represents his city with Dirty Atlanta with the hook taking reference from Michael Jackson’s Dirty Diana.
On A Yacht, featuring Yung LA, which doesn’t really fit with the rest of the album is up next. The beat is too gritty for this smooth sounding album. The album ends with the reflective hood anthem, Keep Ya Head Up, featuring Eklips Da Hustla, and gives inspiration for all that are down and out.
Overall this was a decent album from Pastor Troy as he represented for the ATL. It’s a mellow and chill album with hard-hitting beat tracks tucked in where it needs to be and proves why he still has his longevity and appeal to pull you into his songs. This is a type of album that can be thrown on at all types of occasions, at the club or just riding around the way. Pastor Troy has been around for a long time and I can see him being around even longer.
