Although details are still unclear of the concert that left one man dead and three people wounded, Troy Ave has garnered criticism from some in the hip-hip community, but one rapper has recently showed his support – Meek Mill. On an Instagram posted uploaded yesterday, the Philly rapper posted a photo of Troy Ave in a wheelchair and added a caption about “crabs in the barrell” and cops.
“The laws they made ain’t designed to protect us! “They like get killed or get a 100 years” Don’t let the press “gas” you to go against ya own people! Because if that was a cop Tryna protect his life the police force gone stand behind them 100% “Pic look crazy” #freetroy & never let these “bum ass nobody “sucka” crab in the barrel dudes pull you down! Most of the time it’s all for attention…. that’s all these bustas be wanting forreal!”
Troy Ave has since been released from the hospital and is currently being held without bail until his trial. Troy Ave’s lawyer, Scott E. Leemon claims that Troy is “the real victim” in the Irving Plaza shooting fallout. “He’s the real victim here,” Leemon said. “McPhatter died a hero trying to protect Mr. Collins. He was not shot by Mr. Collins.”
