50 Cent Visits Troy Ave In Hospital


(AllHipHop News) Troy Ave got a visit from 50 Cent today after he was shot two times on Christmas day.

50 Cent has showed an affinity for the young Brooklyn rapper for quite some time and reasserted his support on the holiday.

The elder rapper simply said, “Dope boy Troy all good, Merry Christmas.”

Ave was on his way to Christmas dinner with his family when he was shot in the arm and the head. The headshot grazed him and his wounds were non-life threatening. Roland Collins, Ave’s real name, was sitting in a red Maserati when the shots rang out.

This is the second attempt on his life. Earlier in the year, Ave was involved in a shooting incident that left him injured and his bodyguard dead backstage at a T.I. concert in Manhattan. For his role in the shooting, he was charged with attempted murder and eventually posted $500,000 bail in July.

Police are investigating this current matter, but have not released any information on the suspected shooter.
