UPDATE 1: Maino Says him and his entourage was not involved in the shooting.
Original Story: Following news reports of Troy Ave being involved in the shooting taken place last night at Irving Plaza in New York, it has been reported that the man who died in the shooting was apart of Ave’s entourage.
BSB affiliate Banga, who was Ave’s bodyguard, was brought to Beth Israel Hospital on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, where he was later pronounced dead. Banga’s mother, Rose, told NY Daily News that Troy Ave was at fault for the shooting and bashed him for not sending his condolences:
He actually cared a lot about Troy Ave. My wish is that Troy Ave cared as much about my son as he cared about him. I say that because I watched how my son would always bend over backwards to help him.
Though it was reported by Karen Civil last night that the Brooklyn rapper was grazed by a bullet, it is now reported that Troy was not only firing shots, but SHOT HIMSELF IN THE LEG and allegedly shot Banga by accident while in retaliation. ABC7News tweeted footage of the “All About The Money” rapper firing shots:

Drake Says Free Tory Lanez Ahead of Appeal Hearing
Drake recently took to Instagram Stories to advocate for the freedom of fellow Canadian rapper Tory Lanez, as Lanez prepares for his appeal hearing. Lanez had been sentenced to 10 years in prison in December 2022.
In a straight forward message accompanied by a photo of Lanez, Drake wrote, “3 you.” Lanez had been convicted of assault with an automatic firearm, possession of an unregistered loaded firearm in a vehicle, and reckless discharge of a firearm.
Lanez penned a letter to his fans on Instagram, maintaining his innocence after receiving his sentence:
To The Umbrellas,
I have never let a hard time intimidate me. I will never never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will.
This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved. … That’s it.
In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully convicted of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.
I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious.
Tough times don’t last, tough people do.
To my family, friends and umbrellas thank you for your continued support.
See you soon.
