Troy Ave and his Money Powder Respect Tour comes home to New York City, for the emerging rapper’s first ever headline show in his hometown, on Thursday November 20th, at Highline Ballroom, along with very special guests, including Hot 97’s Funk Flex! Also on the bill are New York stalwarts Nitty Scott, MC and Mayhem Lauren, and the event is hosted by rap super blogger Elliott Wilson.
Doors open at 7pm, and tickets are on sale now. Highline Ballroom is located at 431 W. 16th Street
New York, NY 10011.
Troy Ave, so called for his hometown street in Brooklyn, has made a name for himself by wearing his New York City pride on his sleeve. He has earned the ire of some bloggers, along with the adulation of hordes of New York hip-hop fans by proclaiming himself the King of New York, and actually backing it up with classic-sounding production and tough rhymes about drug dealing, partying and Brooklyn street life.
Despite a growing fanbase, and frequent airplay on Hot 97 and Power 105 over the last year, November 20th will be Troy Ave’s first hard ticket headline concert in New York. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are available here.
