Troy Ave and Taxstone seem to be going back and forth on Twitter this week.
On Friday, March 10, Troy Ave appears to have called Taxstone “hateful” during a heated exchange on Twitter. It all started when Taxstone tweeted Thursday, March 9, “Can’t wait for this delusional lying bozo to testify on Monday!!!”
Although the embattled former podcaster, born Daryl Campbell, didn’t mention any names, he’s likely referring to Troy Ave since Taxstone is on trial for the infamous 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza in New York that claimed the guard’s life. of Troy’s body, Ronald “Banga” Mc Phatter.
Taxstone attorney Kenneth Montgomery confirmed XXL that Troy Ave, born Roland Collins, is expected to testify at his client’s trial on Monday March 13.
“Yes, he is. He is expected to show his cooperation,” Montgomery said in a statement.
Troy Ave, possibly in response to Taxstone’s tweet, wrote on Friday: “A call to action is crazy [rolling on the floor laughing emoji] ‘I can’t wait’ Says the person who only has time [skull emoji]…his friends cooked it [steak emoji] VERY WELL DONE! I could just bring the dessert, what do you want? [four tears of joy emoji] #UnSafeTho.”
The “UnSafeTho” hashtag may be a flip of the #BeSafeTho hashtag often used by Taxstone.
Troy then tweeted a strange message to former President Barack Obama and possibly called Taxstone “hateful” in his tweet.
“Dear @POTUS44 [former President Obama] this Hater is trying to frame MY FRIEND’s murder on Me. I’m innocent, I exploded @ self defense hater! Her man Caswell and Malcolm ate the [cheese] already on him! My new album will be called “DEAR HATER I WON” for pre-order MONDAY!” he wrote.
On Saturday, March 11, Taxstone posted several tweets that possibly target Troy Ave.
“Reject self-reflection at all costs,” he began his rant on Twitter. Lowlifes think the most of themselves.”
“Keep their face away from mirrors but put them in front of everyone’s face,” he continued. “Sometimes we get lost and have to find ourselves, but let’s never forget to reflect on ourselves[.]”
The lawsuit is the result of Taxstone’s involvement in the shooting and death of Banga. During a TI show at Irving Plaza in New York City in 2016, an argument occurred in the VIP section around 10:30 p.m. Gunshots rang out, which ended the show and resulted in Banga’s murder. Surveillance video from the location showed Troy Ave firing a gun. He claimed he was shooting in self-defense. Troy, who was also shot in the leg, was arrested for the shooting.
Taxstone was also arrested for his role in the shooting. He was charged with one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of receiving a firearm in interstate commerce. Taxstone’s DNA was found on the gun that killed Banga and injured Troy Ave.
Twitter beefs aside, it will be interesting to see what happens at Taxstone’s trial on Monday.
