Troy Ave got a lucky break today after he was granted bond in court. Troy Ave, whose real name is Roland Collins, was freed on a $500,000 bond. Troy had to put his mother’s Crown Heights, Brooklyn home in order to secure that large sum.
Troy is charged with one count of second degree attempted murder and three of second degree possession a weapon in the May 25 club shooting that left his best friend and bodyguard Ronald McPhatter dead.
The Brooklyn rapper agreed to wear an ankle monitor, abide by an 11 p.m. curfew and to stay away from bars, nightclubs and other venues, according to DNAinfo.com. New York Supreme Court Justice Ronald Zweibel also reportedly Troy to remain within the five boroughs and surrender his passport at the request of prosecutors.
Prosecutors say the gun that fired the fatal shot that killed McPhatter had Troy Ave’s DNA on it and was found in the rapper’s car after he took himself to the hospital gunshot injuries.
Troy professes his actions were self-defense in his “Free Troy Ave” mixtape.
Troy Ave speaks on the shooting in songs “Intro (Troy Ave Speaks/Freestyle),” “Intermission (Troy Ave Speaks),” and “Outro (Troy Ave Speaks).”
“P---- n***a tried to assassinate me/I took the gun from him and turned the tables round like a G,” Troy raps.
Troy’s next court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 8.
