Brooklyn's Troy Ave—one of Funkmaster Flex’s 20 Emcees to Watch in 2012—wrangles some of NYC's most exciting upstarts for "Home T.E.A.M." Along with Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Action Bronson and Maffew Ragazino, Troy brings grit that will satisfy anyone who still rocks "The Grand Finale" and "4, 3, 2, 1" like a roundtable of NYC rappers never went out of style. It's brash and boastful with nervy strings, a strong drum line and Troy's Brick Star Boyz Family-affiliate, Avon Blocksdale, on the hook. Troy's mixtape, Bricks in My Backpack 3: The Harry Powder Trilogy, is out in March.
