(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn rapper Maino has come forward to deny reports that he was involved with in a dispute with Troy Ave, when a deadly shooting broke out a concert in New York.
Four people, including Troy Ave, were shot backstage at Irving Plaza, at a concert that was supposed to feature headliner T.I., who never made it to the stage.
Instead, thousands of people were forced to flee the concert venue after the shooting, which left one man, a close associate of Troy Ave named Ronald “Banga” McPhatter, dead.
“Won’t let them undo what we’re building! No ‘ongoing beefs’ or ‘entourage issues.’ It always has been and always will be good relations between myself AND MY TEAM and @TroyAve @Hovain @YoungLitoBsB and the BSB crew.”
To remove any doubt, Maino offered his condolences to the family of McPhatter, who was just 33-years-old when he was killed in the shooting.
“Our deepest sympathies again to family of Ronald McPhatter and a speedy recovery to Troy Ave,” Maino wrote. “The movement will not be stopped. #BROOKLYNUNITED #HEARDYOU”
So far, Troy Ave has been charged with reckless endangerment, assault and illegal weapon possession charges.
Police are working to determine if Troy Ave’s gun was the weapon that fired the shot that killed Ronald McPhatter.
Meanwhile, McPhatter’s mother came forward and has criticized Troy Ave, further adding to his woes.
“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,” Rose McPhatter, told The New York Daily News.”
“If he (Troy Ave) cared about my son as much as he alleged he does, I would’ve received a call from him,” Rose McPhatter said. “He didn’t call me. He didn’t call any of my other sons.”
