Taxstone’s Lawyer: Why Is Troy Ave Free While My Client Is In Jail?

Taxstone is sitting in jail while Troy Ave, who was allegedly seen firing a gun in Irving Plaza on surveillance footage, is out on bond. Tax’s lawyer pointed this out, and other matters, in a letter he sent to the judge seeking his client’s release. 

Reports Bossip:

In a letter to the judge, Taxstone’s lawyer argued that he’s no flight risk, has a good job and questioned why Troy Ave was granted bail despite facing more serious charges for his alleged involvement with the shooting.

The popular podcast host, who was born Daryl Campbell, was arrested in January and indicted on charges of possession of a firearm as a convicted felon and having a gun that was the result of interstate commerce.

In court papers obtained by BOSSIP, the “Tax Season” host said that it’s Troy Ave, not him who is facing an attempted murder charge, and said police have the rapper on video firing wildly and found the gun used that evening in Troy Ave’s possession.

Further, Taxstone’s lawyer argues that Troy Ave and his crew were implicated in another shooting in a club days earlier, and the rapper’s best friend Roland “Banga” McPhatter – who was killed at the TI show – was out on bail from that incident.

Interestingly, Taxstone’s lawyer, Kenneth Montgomery, also noted that his client has yet to be charged.

As for Troy Ave, thanks to a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, he’s been adding fire to the resentment Banga’s family feels for him and drawing the ire of those who feels he’s milking the incident for publicity.

Troy Ave maintains they he wrestled the gun away from the initial perpetrator, and only fired in self-defense.

Taxstone is currently being held without bond.
