50 Cent Defends Troy Ave After Irving Plaza Shooting

As New York police investigators try to get to the bottom of the Irving Plaza shooting that left three injured and one dead last week, rappers are defending Troy Ave — the Brooklyn MC who was wounded in the leg and pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges after a video surfaced that appeared to show him firing a gun at the venue.

New York hip-hop mogul 50 Cent shared a shorter message on his own Instagram feed. “Self Defense thats more like it now. Hold ya head TROY. See how the story change.”

The most recent statement from Troy Ave came from his lawyer, Scott Leemon, who said the accused rapper was the “real victim.” Troy Ave’s bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, 33, died after the shooting. Leemon added, “[Troy’s] longtime friend and bodyguard died trying to protect him. As my co-counsel, John Stella, said in court, Troy has no criminal record and he is not a gangsta rapper.”
