Meek Mill Defends Troy Ave After Irving Plaza Shooting And Arrest
Meek Mill has taken many Ls in his life but it looks like Troy Ave might have him beat!
A rapper accused of opening fire at a nightclub was the victim, despite video showing him shooting a gun as patrons ran for their lives, his lawyer said Monday.
Rapper Roland (Troy Ave) Collins, accused of attempted murder and of shooting himself in the leg, was wheeled into court to face charges in the Wild West melee between shows Wednesday at Irving Plaza nightclub in Union Square.
After ballistics tests, Collins’ charges could be upgraded to murder in the death of 30-year-old Ronald (Edgar) McPhatter. Collins pleaded not guilty, and was remanded without bail. The shooting happened at a T.I. concert, before the Atlanta-based rapper was set to take the stage.
Prosecutors said Collins fired five times in a crowded venue with no concern about the consequences. In addition to McPhatter dying, two other people were wounded.
Meek Mill recently defended the Cheddar Bob rapper on IG:
Do you think Meek is right for defending Troy or should he just have a stadium of seats??
