The past year has been rough for Troy Ave, as he was shot just before the T.I. concert at Irving Plaza. There was massive fallout from this shooting, leading to Taxstone being arrested. As the popular podcaster is awaiting trial, Troy Ave is back out here.
Troy Ave has his Dope Boy Troy album he is promoting. With the new album has come several new music releases. Several videos have dropped over the past few weeks with even more to come, leading to his appearance on “The Breakfast Club.”
Sitting down with DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God, Troy Ave made a bold comment. While there, he compared himself to the late Tupac Shakur, hip hop’s primary icon, who died in 1996. Troy Ave called himself the new Tupac, while speaking on the shooting, and Taxstone, prompting Twitter to roast him, saying being shot in NY doesn’t make him Pac.
