Newbie Troy “Co$$” Johnson has the same style I do….khakis and Taylors. I wear my white converse all summer! This rapper, from an area of L.A. east of Crenshaw called Leimert Park, is in the process of finishing up his debut album for Tres Records. He went to religious school as a youngster, but when his father passed away when he was 15, Co$$ turned to the streets for comfort and became gang-affliated for a time. He claims that both religious school and gang life helped him to become both conscious AND street – One experience was the yin while the other was the yang. The pretty to his ugly. Which, coincidentally, is the title to his new single, “PrettyUgly” that was just leaked. It is available for free download, but also make sure you visit his Myspace page….the other beats on his tracks are pretty stinkin’ boss. Follow the links and see if he has really paid the Co$$ to be tha Boss!
