Troy Ave has returned with his third project of the year, this time delivering new music alongside a new movie of the same name.

In a subsequent IG post, Troy Ave explained that his goal for this project was to herald a return to the “New York City sound.”

“This what we on this that New York City Sound!,” he wrote in the caption. “Atlanta got they $hit Chicago , Cali , Detroit etc all got they $hit and it’s all [heart emoji] but this that East Coast independent king $hit, time we start looking and sounding like where we from again!

In the days leading up to the release of New York City: The Movie, Troy Ave also revealed that he would be continuing his White Christmas mixtape series, delivering its 10th edition on December 25.

Troy Ave kicked off the year with the release of The 2022 Season, an 11-track project featuring some support from Soulja Boy, Pastor Rema, Zay’marie, Peezy, and Trapboy Freddy. During an interview with The Breakfast Club following the release of that project, Troy Ave hinted that all of his subsequent albums will be actual soundtracks used to draw a captive audience for their accompanying films

“All these albums that I’m making now, I’m making them like soundtracks, so they come with a movie,” he explained. “That’s why they short, that’s why they 25, 30 minutes. And then it’s smarter like that streaming-wise just to go get a bag and run it up. So I wanted it to be a movie with just me.”

His second project of the year, The Sunday Service, was released in April.
