Troy Ave Hints at Testifying Against Taxstone in Court in “2 Legit 2 Quit” Video
Podcast personality Taxstone might have been behind bars for over a year now, but that doesn't mean Troy Ave's done beefing with him. The Brooklyn rapper makes that much crystal clear in his new video for "2 Legit 2 Quit," a cut from his White Christmas 5 mixtape.
In the animated new visual, Troy comes at the person responsible for shooting him on Christmas Day in 2016, with a re-creation of the events of that day. He explains that he didn't have his pistol because he was on probation, and that his attacker would have been dead had that not been the case.
Getting back to Tax, we eventually see an animated Troy Ave seated in court, flipping his middle finger at an unspecified person in front of him. The lyrics attached to this particular clip are more than a little ruthless, and hint at Troy testifying against the man suspected of killing his friend and bodyguard, Ronald “Banga” McPhatter, at Irving Plaza on May 25, 2016.
"I’m only loyal to my fam/Middle finger from the stand/It’s either me or you," he raps on the track. Doesn't sound like Troy's trying to hide anything about what he means here.
On June 15, 2017, Taxstone was indicted for firearm possession as a felon and he admitted to receiving a firearm in the interstate commerce connected to the New York City venue in which the shooting took place. A little less than a month later, on July 13, 2017, Tax was indicted for second-degree murder for the killing of Banga.
