Troy Ave

Slow and steady wins the race, and it looks like Troy Ave may finally be approaching the finish line. The charismatic Brooklyn rapper has been buzzing since 2006, when his video for "Rep It With My Heart"/"BK, BK" hit BET’s now defunct Rap City. But over the past few years, he’s released a steadily improving series of mixtapes, including his most recent, White Christmas, which features boldfaced names — including Mac Miller, Fabolous, Noreaga, Pusha T and more — and has him riding sky-high into 2013.
