At the end of last month, Roland Collins aka Troy Ave was formally charged with attempted murder. A week later, the Brooklyn rapper finally broke his silence on the shooting that occurred at a T.I. concert at New York’s Irving Plaza on May 26. However, rather than making the ordinary written statement, he expressed himself and explained the situation in the form of a freestyle.
Days later, we’re met with yet another update in Troy Ave’s current situation. It has been officially reported that the rapper has now been formally indicted on one charge of attempted murder and two felony weapon charges.
These charges follow the Irving Plaza shooting that left his own bodyguard—Ronald McPhatter aka BSBBanga—dead. The incident also left four others injured, including Troy Ave himself with a shot to the leg.
Though Troy Ave has pleaded not guilty, he continues to be held without bail until his trial. He is expected to make his next court appearance on June 22.
