Troy NoKA ‘Til I Can’t Go’ Video: Piano Is the Bed for His Aspirational Lyrics
Troy NoKA‘s name may not resonate with fans of Frank Ocean and Chris Brown but his work should, considering he’s produced songs for the R&B crooners — the producer-singer-rapper crafted three tracks on Ocean’s Nostalgia, Ultra project. NoKA is now moving into center stage with a new video, “Til I Can’t Go” and his album, Free Dreaming.
“Til I Can’t Go’ is a testimony, that you are the only one who can stop your success,” Troy tells The BoomBox of his new song. “When I was 15, I could rap but didn’t know how to make a track. At 18, I could rap and make my beats, but I needed someone to sing my hooks. By 21, I could rap, make beats and I could sing my own hooks. At 22, I taught myself to play piano. And by 24, I could do it all. I go until I can’t go; this is only the beginning.”
“Ay I want the whole world, you can have the moon/ I’ma take the bowl, you just get the spoon,” he raps while playing the piano in the clip.
The 24-year-old, who was raised in the Army, has released the Free Dreaming LP on his website. Download the effort here.
