Troy Ave Launches Releases 'New York City: The Movie' His Third Project Of The Year

Troy Ave has made a comeback with his third project of the year, releasing new music this time along with a new film of the same name.

Less than two weeks after Troy Ave originally revealed New York City: The Movie’s debut on Instagram with the release of its lead single “Based On A True Story,” the project was finally made available on all streaming services on Friday (November 25).

Troy Ave outlined his project’s objective to usher in a return to the “New York City sound” in a later IG post.

“This what we on this that New York City Sound!,” he wrote in the caption. “Atlanta got they $hit Chicago, Cali, Detroit, etc all got they $hit and it’s all [heart emoji] but this that East Coast independent king $hit, time we start looking and sounding like where we from again!

“Remember when I came in the game and put all the OGs on my wave outta love & to remind the world of that NYC sound?! Well, Ima restore the feeling [100 emoji], And all my people from outta town that appreciate that classic feel I got U! Just know u don’t go to the Chinese store when u want Pizza!”

A Soundtrack by Troy Ave, the musical undertaking, is currently accessible across all streaming services. The real New York City in the movie: The Movie was once exclusively going to be rented or bought through Amazon Prime Video.

Hours after both releases, Troy Ave used social media to inform fans that they could also watch the film for free on Worldstar.

Troy Ave also made the announcement that he would be continuing his White Christmas mixtape series and would release its tenth installment on December 25 in the days preceding the premiere of New York City: The Movie.

The 2022 Season, an 11-track project by Troy Ave that received assistance from Soulja Boy, Pastor Rema, Zay’marie, Peezy, and Trapboy Freddy, was released at the beginning of the year. Troy Ave revealed that all of his upcoming albums will actually be soundtracks designed to create a captive audience for their associated films during an interview with The Breakfast Club after the release of that project.

“All these albums that I’m making now, I’m making them like soundtracks, so they come with a movie,” he explained. “That’s why they short, that’s why they 25, 30 minutes. And then it’s smarter like that streaming-wise just to go get a bag and run it up. So I wanted it to be a movie with just me.”

The Sunday Service, his second production of the year, was made public in April.
