Troy Curry AKA TrOyMaN was born and raised in the Bay Area of California a hip hop breeding ground to such hip hop icons as E-40, Too-Short, Digital Underground, and the late great Tupac Shakur one of Troyman's key musical influences.
TrOyMaN began displaying signs of what many in the music industry refer to as “The IT Factor” at a very young age and by the time he was in his early teens TrOyMaN had already began following in the footsteps of the hip hop greats that came before him and preparing himself for hip hop greatness.
As fate would have it TrOyMaN relocated to Lawrenceville, Georgia a few years ago and within a very short period of time he caught the attention of his older cousin EMME Group Inc. President/CEO Tonya Bowers who immediately recognized TrOyMaN's undeniable talents and began working to further develop and cultivate the hip hop seed that had been planted in TrOyMaN at birth.
The term “Triple Threat” is often used to describe TrOyMaN because of his capabilities not only as a recording artist but as a writer/producer as well. Being a “Triple Threat” at such a young age is definitely going to place him well ahead of the game. His style is youthful and radio friendly but still hard enough to let true hip hop fans know that he can rumble with the best of them. With a style that can be appreciated by hip hop heads and parents alike TrOyMaN is sure to reign at the top of the charts for many years to come.
While it is truly an injustice to compare TrOyMaN to anyone, the comparisons to everyone from Will Smith to the late Tupac Shakur are definitely well deserved.
In the summer of 2008 TrOyMaN released his self-produced mix CD to spectacular reviews. This self-produced mix CD found him collaborating with such hip hop icons as E-40 and Tupac Shakur in a way that blew the minds of hip hop heads from the dirty south to the west coast. His follow up “XPECT THE UNXPECTED” is a hip hop masterpiece that hasn't been witnessed on the mix tape circuit since artists like Game and Eminem burst on the scene.
A few of TrOyMaN's early accolades include being crowned the winner in MTV's 2009Atlanta's Best Independent Artist/ Rock Your Fashion Campaign, being crowned 1st place winner in the 2009 Uplifting Minds Talent Competition, being selected as the winner in Atlanta's Best Independent Hip Hop Artist competition, being selected as 1st place winner on BET's 106th & Park Wild Out Wednesdays, being chosen by Darryl “DMC” McDaniel of the legendary rap group “Run DMC” to become a member of a new hip hop group “The New Alumni” which will also be featured in an upcoming reality show, and the completion of his first music video for single “Anything” a YouTube favorite that currently boast over 90,000 plays since being uploaded. TrOyMaN's film credits as an actor include the films “LAYING MY PAST TO REST” and “MY BROTHER'S KEEPER” both of which he also contributed music to the soundtracks. He also contributed a song to the soundtrack for the independent film “FAMILY, FAITH, AND MONEY”
Currently in the studio working on material for his much anticipated EMME Recordings debut, TrOyMaN says “Hip Hop is evolving and it means everything to me to have the opportunity to make my mark as one of the major contributors to a genre of music that has the power to affect a positive change in young people worldwide.” Having that drive and passion is what prompted “Hip Hop Grows Up” founders Cecelia Morris and Talia Ashley to name TrOyMaN as the new face and spokesperson for their Nationally known Non-profit organization. If the saying is true that real artists are born and not created TrOyMaN is definitely poised to become one of the greatest hip hop artist of his generation.

EMME Recording Artist Troyman Revisits the Golden Era of Hip Hop and Pays Homage to Run DMC with His Latest Single "Miii A.D.I.D.A.S"

EMME recording artist TrOyMaN has raised the bar once again for others to follow with his latest sin...EMME recording artist TrOyMaN has raised the bar once again for others to follow with his latest single release "Miii A.D.I.D.A.S." Inspired to create a record that would bring the essence of true hip hop back to a music genre that is currently oversaturated with "HiP PoP" and music that lacks substance TrOyMaN sets out to prove to the world that Hip Hop is not just a music genre but it is a Lifestyle that should be expressed through his music as a self proclaimed "SoN of HiP HoP".
"Miii A.D.I.D.A.S" is a track that will undoubtedly take the hip hop music scene by surprise with its innovative production and the lyrical genius of Atlanta based artist TrOyMaN whom critics have been hailing as the next to blow since he burst on the scene with his debut single "Anything" that gained rave reviews from consumers and hip hop music critics alike.
While reintroducing a new generation of hip hop lovers to the "Adidas" brand TrOyMaN has found a way to bring a fresh and innovative twist to a song concept originally recorded and performed during a time that is still often considered the "Golden Era of Hip Hop" by one of his mentors Daryl "DMC" McDaniel and his trailblazing platinum selling group Run DMC on their ground breaking Raising Hell album.
Continuing to run with the torch that set the bar more than 25 years ago as it relates to bridging the gap between hip hop music and the Adidas brand TrOyMaN version driven by a powerful baseline is sure to gain heavy rotation on radio and in the clubs both domestically and internationally.
When asked the question why try and recreate a hip hop classic? TrOyMaN states with conviction, "I feel that with each new project I must challenge myself to give my rapidly growing fan base the type of music that they deserve as consumers and I felt what better way to do that than to take them back to a time when hip hop was fresh and innovative."
"Miii A.D.I.D.A.S" is currently available through online retailers and a limited edition remix version of the song which is currently in production has been scheduled for a mid-summer release that will feature a guest appearance by Daryl "DMC" McDaniel.
