Rolland Collins aka Troy Ave is heading to court soon. And, he admits that his going to tell it all. Troy’s body guard who was a close friend, as well was killed at Irving Plaza. According to Troy he admits he did not tell the entire truth about what happened that day. However, he is now willing to do so. Here is some of what Troy had to say:
“I didn’t tell everything that happened, I held up to the street code like and idiot,” Troy Ave said. “If I’d said in the hospital,’here’s what happened, here’s who shot me,’ (the case against him would) be over.”
It appears that Troy had a change of heart since being shot along with four others in May of 2016. Troy, Uncle Murda and Maino were all at Irving Plaza that day. While Troy survived his injuries Ronald “Banga” McPhatter (Troy’s body guard) was shot and killed. If Taxstone is the shooter then he will certainly be going to prison for a very long time.
