Manolo Rose Explains What Really Happened With the Troy Ave Death Retweet
Manolo Rose has been hard at work focusing on the follow-up to 2015's Concrete Rose. While the "Run Ricky Run" rhymer has been dropping new heat since the beginning of 2016, on Thursday (May 26) he made headlines for news outside of his music when he retweeted a comment on Twitter that wished Troy Ave was dead.
He immediately offered an explanation, stating that despite his differences with the "Doo Doo" rapper, he would never wish that he was deceased. In a new interview with Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, Rose speaks about his relationship with Troy and what really went down with the tweet.
"I laughed, because I was like, This is crazy," Rose said after he viewed the tweet. "I retweeted it because it was crazy. Then people started saying I am wishing death on him." He even touched on their past beef. "We've had our issues... but it's over," he said. "We've never sat down or anything like that... I think sometimes those type of things get overrated."
In his defense, it doesn't seem like Rose has passed Twitter 101. Hot 97 host Laura Stylez had to explain to him that if he would have retweeted it with a comment, then people would have interpreted it differently. Rose chalked it up to him being "insensitive to things going on in society." "For example, Thug's daughter curses on Instagram," he explained. "Nobody agrees with a child cursing but everybody posted it."
Maybe Manolo has a point. Hopefully, Troy can forgive his poor Twitter etiquette and the Brooklyn MC's can finally dead the beef.
The tweet stemmed from Troy Ave's involvement in a shooting at T.I.'s concert in New York earlier this week. News broke that the rapper was one of the victims shot in the leg in the incident. However, Troy has since been arrested on charges of attempted murder, reckless endangerment and illegal possession of a firearm. Video footage of the shooting surfaced in which he's shown firing off bullets at an unknown assailant inside Irving Plaza. He's seen limping, which supports the reports that he was shot in the leg.
