Chances are you haven’t heard of him…but you have heard him. The production mind behind tracks such as “Should’ve Kissed You” by Chris Brown to the fan favorite “Love Crimes” track by Frank Ocean has decided to take his talent to the microphone. That means, the game is in trouble. Sure the vision of a rapper sitting at a piano and playing for his entire video, may seem peculiar and that’s good. The fact is Austin, Texas own Troy Nóka (originally T-Wiz but Khalifa ruined that google search) is quickly making himself a household name and having to dispel the title of next Kanye.
His story is a bit different than most rappers: He reps Austin, but went to school in Georgia, Kansas, and even Germany. Yea Germany. It’s no wonder why his music will take you across various genres and make you think you are in a world music class. In fact, Troy points out that you will definitely find a heavy dose of Yani, John Tesh, and the lyrical Kris Kristofferson in his collection.
