Troy Ave appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday, February 10, for a pre-trial hearing regarding the attempted murder charge he received following his arrest last year for allegedly being involved in a shooting that took place at Irving Plaza in New York City.
Ronald McPhatter was killed and three people were injured, including Troy when shots rang out backstage on May 25, 2016, during a T.I. concert.
The Brooklyn, New York native and BSB Records CEO, showed up in court wearing a floor-length fur coat and bullet proof vest.
He received good news when prosecutors agreed to drop the travel restrictions that were one of the conditions of his $500,000 bail agreement.
Troy, born Roland Collins, can now resume performing and promoting his music at various venues across the country.
“He has a couple of tour dates lined up,” his lawyer John Stella told theNew York Daily News. “They'll start announcing them as early as (Saturday). He’s got an event in North Carolina that's coming together. He's very happy."
Troy is still recovering after being shot again on December 25, 2016, while he was driving in Brooklyn.
"I still get headaches sometimes because there's still a bullet in my head so it'll be throbbing," he said. "I got a bullet in my back so it's hard to sleep. My son likes to pretend he's Batman I'm still trying to get through the pain but It's better than being dead."
Taxstone, born Daryl Campbell, the host of the "Tax Season" podcast, was arrested Monday, January 16, by U.S. Marshals New York, New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and NYPD in Brooklyn.
Prosecutors allege that he was also involved in the Irving Plaza shooting, citing his Troy's and McPhatter's DNA being on the 9-millimeter Kel-Tec semiautomatic handgun used that night. But because Tax's was allegedly on the trigger, hand grip and magazine of the weapon, prosecutors believe it belonged to him. He is currently being held without bail.
As we previously reported, beef between Troy and Taxstone has been simmering for several years.
