Never Scared To Face Off: Bone Crusher To Battle Pastor Troy (Video)
Last year, fans from many different corners of Hip-Hop looked on as ONYX’s Fredro Starr defeated Keith Murray in a Brooklyn, New York Rap battle. The two 1990s MCs (who both remain actively recording today) squared off in a wild, at times uncomfortable competition.
The same promotions company responsible for last October’s battle, MC War, has a new marquee event in store. Two 2000s stars of the Atlanta, Georgia scene are facing off. Bone Crusher will battle Pastor Troy on October 8 at a presently-secret ATL location. The event will take place during A3C week. The battle will reportedly also be made available for live stream.
Bone Crusher, now an Atlanta radio personality on BOOM 102.9FM, released 2003’s AttenCHUN on So So Def/Arista Records to a Top 15 debut. His single “Never Scared” featured early appearances by T.I. and Killer Mike, and would peak at #26. Bone appeared on stage as last week’s Dungeon Family reunion in Atlanta.
Since the late 1990s, Pastor Troy has been an independent star in Atlanta. Famous for his disses towards Master P and No Limit Records during the height of their movement, Troy would sign with Universal Records to release some of his many albums, including 2003’s Top 15 Universal Soldier. Some of Troy’s hits include “Are We Cuttin'” with Ms. Jade, and Chamillionaire’s “Southern Takeover.”
