There is some proper grimey broken-glass-scraping-across-concrete NY rap on Troy Ave’s Bricks In My Backpack 2: Powder To The People, the opening 3 track salvo in particular is very impressive. Unfortunately there’s also some generic filler too. Troy Ave clearly has talent, based on the high points here he deserves the attention, but maybe needs a little more focus. A mixtape that’s all songs like “Motion Picture” and “Dirty Martini” without random songs fo’ da ladiez would be most welcome. More rapping over Doom beats would work too.
