Troy Ave’s latest song has everyone talking… including himself? He appears to confirm he will testify against Taxstone, who allegedly shot and killed Ave’s former friend/bodyguard, Banga, May 2016.
“I’m only loyal to my fam/Middle finger from the stand/It’s either me or you,” raps Troy Ave in “2 Legit 2 Quit” around the 00:58 mark in the video above.
It’s been almost two years since the fatal shooting at Irving Plaza in New York City. While T.I. was scheduled to headline the show, gunshots were heard right before the Atlanta rhymer got onstage, causing the crowd to go into a frenzy. Four people were shot during the tragic incident, but only Banga ended up dead.
Due to surveillance footage, police arrested Troy Ave as the primary suspect for the shooting since he was seen opening fire backstage (and accidentally shooting himself in the leg). The murder weapon was also found in the car used to drive an injured Ave to the hospital. Ave claimed he was using the gun for self-defense and that Banga got caught in the middle. While spending two months in jail, Ave released the mixtape Free Troy Ave to support his innocence.
