Troy Ave has been indicted on charges related to his role in the the May 25 Irving Plaza shooting that left his friend and bodyguard Ronald “Banga” McPhatter dead, New York Post reports.
“I’m filing a certificate of affirmative grand jury action,” ADA Chistine Keenan said in Manhattan court on Thursday. Troy Ave was not present at the court hearing.
Troy was arrested on attempted murder and weapons charges after surveillance video showed him opening fire in a crowded room. The charges on which he’s been indicted have not been revealed.
Troy rapped the intro to his new mixtape Free Troy Ave over the phone from Rikers Island, where he is currently being held without bail. “Locked in the jail but I’m gon get free,” he rapped. “I wear icy gold chains, can’t no brass break me. Pussy nigga tried to assassinate me, I took the gun from him and turned the tables ‘round like a G.”
He is due back in court on July 7.
