Troy Ave made headlines a couple days ago when he self-proclaimed himself the “second coming of Tupac” during an interview on The Breakfast Club. While fans roasted him all day on Twitter for his comment, it appears the Brooklyn rapper is really running with that idea. On Friday, Troy decided to announce that he would be dropping a new “street album” next Friday, April 14 called Nupac.

"A few media outlets with hidden agendas against us real ones done twisted what i said, and thru lemons in hopes of covering & preventing my true message from gettin thru to the masses! well ya Dope Boy Troy gon twist those into Lemonade & Serve it Cold! The Hate can't effect me cause I'm fearless, dedicated, faithful & righteous! Never Wait out the storm Y'all! Go Dance in The Rain💯 With that said on Friday April 14th Ima drop this [Street Album] titled: Dope Boy Troy (vol.2) #NuPac! I'm airing everybody tha fuk out! ..... These Ain't No Photoshopped Pictures, This My Real Life" Troy Ave captioned on INstagram.

Along with that, Troy also revealed the Tupac-inspired artwork, which sees Troy & the West Coast icon having to face similar paths throughout their troubled life.
