Muze PNote "Hard as a hammer/I am Atlanta," declares Pastor Troy early on his sixth record, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. It's a forward boast, but not entirely idle, since the growling yet spiritual-minded purveyor of crunk has established himself as one of the most interesting and talented rappers from that fertile city. While Pastor Troy's rhymes often concern familiar topics such as cars, women, survival, and respect, he cuts his flow with sincere humor and a touch of self-consciousness.
Muze PNote On this set, Pastor Troy reveals a complex, torn individual. He can unleash fury ("Crank Me Up") as easily as he can reminisce wistfully ("Atlanta"). He can brag heartily and thuggishly ("Representin'"), or he can observe the world at large ("Crazy"). Troy also reinvents Whodini's profoundly reflective "Friends" into a goofy song about flashy cars called "Benz," a potentially corny move that works surprisingly well. And Troy's amiable response to two young rappers on a three-minute interlude gives warm insight into one of hip-hop's more complicated individuals.
