Troy Ave Claims He’s Being Extorted for His Sex Tape
This year has been a tumultuous one for Troy Ave, and unfortunately, things don't look to be getting easier. In a recent Instagram post, the "Your Style" rapper claims that he's being extorted for a sex tape he's featured in.
In the post, the BSB rapper explains that someone stole his laptop, which happens to have some X-rated footage of himself and another woman. In the screenshot, the alleged thief says The Shade Room is asking him for the footage, and he implies that Troy needs to cough up $20,000, or else he's going to release the video.
Troy says that he had planned on using some of the less explicit parts of the footage for a music video, but it's now unclear what he's going to do with it. What is clear is that he doesn't plan on paying the money. In his post, Troy writes that he won't be extorted and that the video is supposed to be going live at 3 p.m. E.T.
The New York native uploaded the screenshot, but considering that he doesn't know the identity of the alleged thief, there's not too much else he can do. At this point, he's probably more interested in promoting his forthcoming project, It’s Bricks in My Backpack 4 This White Christmas, which is all set to be released on Friday (Dec. 23). Keep it locked with XXL for more updates on the project.
