Pastor Troy debates freedom of speech
Atlanta rapper Pastor Troy has been forced to change the name of his upcoming album, after its original Saddam Hussein title sparked controversy.
The artist, whose real name is Micah Levar Troy, will now release the album under the banner Tool Muziq.
Troy defends the original title, saying: “I ain’t disappointed. It’ll work out, the album still has that Saddam element so they gonna feel it good.
“It wasn’t any disrespect or nothing like that. I don’t want to take over the world, it’s just the mood of the album. Everybody know Saddam don’t play, and I don’t play on the album.”
Should Pastor Troy have been allowed to keep the original name of the album?
