Name: Troy NoKA

Age: I’m an 80’s baby… I grew up in the 90’s

Where I’m from: Austin, Texas is home. As a military brat I grew up all over. I did elementary and middle school in Europe, High school in Kansas city, and I currently reside in L.A.

I’ve been rapping since: Since i was born, haha. Nah, but since Bone Thugs E. 1999 Eternal. As a kid i would throw parties and create original beats on my Playstation with a game called MTV music generator, then I would perform them at the parties with my click. Lil Flip was one of my biggest inspirations starting out.

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Kanye, Andre 3000 and Drake , all of which I think are huge compliments. I appreciate the art they each create.

My standout records and/or moments have been: “Til I Can’t Go” which was my first music video and it shows what I’m about. I play piano, I rap, I sing, I create, I’m an artist. My biggest standout moment was when I got a Grammy certificate for working on Chris Brown’s album.

I’m gonna change the game by: By being Troy Noka. By being different, by bringing to the game something people haven’t seen before. FREE DREAMING, having no limits and rules to what i do.

I’d like to work with: Yanni. He’s one of my favorite musicians. Dr. Dre, one of my favorite producers, and Prince, one of my favorite artists.

My goal in hip-hop is: To use Hip Hop to inspire people to think. share my story to inspire, challenge limits, redefine boundaries in hip hop, show its cool to be intelligent.

I’m gonna be the next: Legend
