(AllHipHop News) The Irving Plaza shooting involving Troy Ave has been one of the most talked about stories in Hip Hop over the last several weeks. West Coast emcee YG has now given his thoughts on the situation.
YG recently spoke with DJ Self, and the “Why You Always Hatin?” rhymer offered a defense of Troy.
“I feel like this, if I got popped I would have did the same thing. I would have made my way out that joint period,” said YG. “That’s just reaction.”
Troy claimed he and his bodyguard, Ronald “Banga” McPhatter, were shot by an unnamed individual, and the Brooklyn rhymer fired back at the person. McPhatter was killed. Three other people, including Troy, were injured.
Troy Ave has been charged with attempted murder and weapon possession. He is currently being held without bail.
