PASTOR TROY – “Vice Versa” MUSIC VIDEO (Lisa Ford’s Throwback IPOD Pick) Sunday 26 August, 2012
When I think of ‘chuuuch’ music, the hit rap record ‘Vice Versa’ off of Pastor Troy’s ‘Face Off’ album (2001) is one I can say ‘Amen’ to! Do ya’ll hear those unyielding church bells in the background? This is real ‘Chuuch’ music. The overall sound is hardcore, not watered down. Pastor Troy conveys a deep message suggesting, or better yet, posing the question, ‘What if our belief systems are wrong, and things are really VICE VERSA?’
This concept in a rap song is extremely heartfelt. Whether you like Pastor Troy or not, this sh*t went hard!! No aututones, just hard core hip hop. I thought about Pastor Troy while sitting at my desk waiting for Tropical Storm Issac to pass us by (here in Miami). This post is just my way of saying that I crave music that’s a little hardcore. Not every rapper can be a gangster, or rap about a hard life, but at least they can make sure their music goes hard. Some of it is for entertainment purposes, I know. But this one here went deep.
