Rapper Troy Ave's Court Date Postponed
The hip-hop world was shocked when video of Troy Ave shooting up the Irving Plaza during the opening set of T.I.‘s concert was released. The East Brooklyn rapper was arrested and charged with attempted murder while being treated for a self-inflicted injury. New reports are claiming that Troy Ave was supposed to have a scheduled court appearance this past weekend, however, it has since been revealed that his date has been postponed due to him receiving additional medical attention.
The Major Without a Deal rapper reportedly had surgery to remove bone fragments from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his leg. On May 25th, the New York Daily News said that the rapper opened fire in the area of the green rooms at Irving Plaza around the time Maino and Uncle Murda were opening up for T.I. Four people, including Troy Ave, were shot in the incident with the former’s affiliate and friend, Ronald “Banga” McPhatter dying from a gun wound to the stomach.
Troy Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, is facing charges of attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon. Officials expect to upgrade the charges to murder once the ballistic investigation is completed. Currently, Troy Ave is reportedly handcuffed to his hospital bed at NYU Langone Medical Center and is under the supervision of a police officer.
