Get to know Troyaine Tucker

By anthony rhynePublished 3 months ago 3 min read

What’s your name, and where are you from?

My birth name is Troyaine Tucker, my family and friends call me Troy. The inspiration behind my music name was given to me by one of my dear friends, who I lost back in 2012. She said that the way I carried myself and the way I projected my words in my music was in the sense of poetry. She told me that I carried a very poetic soul, old and gifted. So she began to call me poetry, and i added my own twist to it. Originally, I was born and raised in Queens, NY. My family and i moved to South Carolina in 2000. My grandmother is originally from here and wanted to come back home. So we all packed up and followed suit.

Why do you love what you do?

Music got me through many dark days in my life. But also many good days. Music has been my second bible. Growing up in queens, I was surrounded by the atmosphere of hip-hop. It was considered culture to us. You couldn’t walk to the store without hearing the latest hits. The music brought a sense of security to me. As I began studying different artists and different genres, I learned so much about how i wanted the world to hear my story. As I grew up listening and being inspired by the hip hop game; from legends like Eric B and Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Leaders of the new school, and Curtis blow, They each had their own message, that intrigued me to want to tell mine.

What makes you different?

Honestly, what makes me different from other artists and just in general is that I’m unique. I consider myself to have a strong eye and ear for music, but not just hip hop. Especially when I heard Notorious Big “Ready to Die” album, it just gave me that feeling and vibe of “yo I wanna do this!!”. It was just how he told a different story every time and his lyrical delivery was always phenomenal.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I believe in speaking things into existence. So I would say In 5 years, I see myself elevating and prospering. I want to travel and tour the world. Inspiring people with my music, stimulating their minds through words, and becoming more known as an icon and lyricist. i want to change the game and music industry with a different flow. I’m a man with many different styles and talents so the sky’s the limit for me and my future.

What do you want to accomplish in life?

My main goal is leaving a legacy behind for my children. I want my kids to know that I was successful because of them. I did this for them. I want to be known as an artist with many talents in music, acting, poetry, and storytelling that will shake up but change this industry. If my kids choose to, they can continue to build from my empire because I'm doing this for them, my wife and kids. I just want them happy and proud of the person I’m becoming.

What do you bring to this industry?

Honestly, I have a different vibe. I rap about life and what I feel, and I have no shade towards artists nowadays, but I’m P03try for a reason. my style isn't like others I bring a deeper meaning to my music because it’s relatable. Everyone can feel it.

What do you want to be remembered by?

I want to be remembered for my words. I live by one of my infamous freestyle Quotes: “Life is not endless, but dig this my sentences are immortal…” meaning I’m not given unlimited lives, but my words will live forever…
