Nearly two months after being jailed in the Irving Plaza shooting in May, Troy Ave is out on bail.
According to the New York Daily News, the rapper (real name: Roland Collin) was released from custody on Monday (July 11), after posting $500,000 bond.
Troy has been charged with attempted murder, weapons possession, and other charges in connection with a deadly shootout at NYC’s Irving Plaza… and has pleaded not guilty.
During the shooting, his bodyguard and friend Ronald “Banga” McPhatter was shot and killed. Troy, himself, was also shot in the leg as well.
Troy denies being responsible for his death, but has not been ruled out as a murder suspect.
Although he’s free, awaiting trial, he has to wear an ankle monitor and is not allowed to leave the city. He has also been ordered to stay away from concert venues.
Troy’s attorney John Stella believes his client will prevail. “We feel that we have a case to present that’s ultimately going to exonerate him and indicate that his actions were justified,” Stella said.
Following his release, he shared the following message on Twitter:
