Pastor Troy Forced To Change Album Title

pastor-troy1.jpgAtlanta MC, Pastor Troy, is changing the name of his upcoming album from Saddam Hussein to Tool Muziq. Three of the major retail chains refused to carry the album with the original title, forcing Troy to pick a different name. “The Saddam title was just a metaphor for how I was comin’ back for my shit, hostile takeover style,” says Troy. “I’m gonna bring genocide to the rap game. It wasn’t political or anything like that. I’ve got love for the troops, they’ve always supported me and I support them. So now I’m just gonnna give ‘em Tool Muziq ‘cause that’s what this album is — hardcore gangsta shit.” Tool Muziq will be released on July 3 on SMC Records and will feature production by Shawty Red, Drumma Boy, DJ Squeeky and guest appearances by Gangsta Boo, Fabo of D4L and The Hit Man Sammy Sam. “Troy has always been the epitome of an independent underground artist,” says Will Bronson, COO of SMC Records. “But when he signed to a major they took the ‘fuck you’ right out of him. Troy’s got that passion back and for [a] lack of a better phrase — we ready!”

  • Dr Flav

    Censorship had nothing to do with it, did you read that THREE MAJOR RETAIL CHAINS REFUSED to carry it, dude trying to get his money, he aint doing it just for fun. Music is his source of income, he playing the industry game.

    dade county 305: i see u can read compared to people on here talkin bout the label made him do it. the guy does have to eat if his cd ain’t in no stores how is supposed to do that. people criticize the wrong shit, and stay quiet when theres an actual problem.

  • Jason Murk

    That was a dumb ass name anyway. Sadaam Hussein didn’t come back for shit… that nigga got hung. And when they found his ass, he wasn’t hostile… he didn’t shoot back… he didn’t do shit. He probably shit himself when they drug him out of that spider hole.

    Maybe the name “Sadaam Hussein” does fit Pastor Troy though. All these rappers talk as if they’d open fire on their opponents when it’s time for war. But when an altercation actually goes down, they don’t do shit

  • cannon
