ONE of the early breakouts of Dirty South rap, Pastor Troy brings his Augusta roots to Savannah this weekend.
Troy’s first recording was We Ready – I Declare War, released by Madd Society Records in 1999.
His major-label debut, Face Off, was released in 2000 on Universal Records and included the singles “Vice Versa,” featuring Peter the Disciple, and “This tha City.” That same year, DSGB (Down South Georgia Boyz), with whom Pastor Troy performed, released an album of their own on Khaotic Generation Records.
In 2002, he was featured on Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz’s seminal album Kings of Crunk, joining in on the song “Throw it Up.”
Hype built around Pastor Troy’s second album, the 2002 record Universal Soldier. The Timbaland-produced single “Are We Cuttin’” hit number 96 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The album charted at number 13 on the Billboard 2000.
Pastor Troy released his most recent album, WAR in Atlanta, in 2015. He most recently released the OGBT Mixtape and a music video for the song the song “O.G.P.T.” in February.
