Troy's lawyer confirms the Brooklyn-born MC was shot in the arm and was grazed in the head by a bullet, but his injuries are not life-threatening.
"Tonight, Troy Ave was targeted again... on Christmas," Scott Leemon, an attorney for the rapper, said in a statement obtained by Billboard. "In Brooklyn, going to meet his family for the holiday, he was shot two times. Thankfully, he will survive the second attempt on his life. As we have said from the beginning -- he is a victim. We pray for his speedy recovery."
50 Cent ran up to the hospital to check on his homie and posted the pic above while saying, "He's good."
Back in May, during a T.I. concert at Irving Plaza in NYC, Troy Ave. was caught on camera firing off his gun during a shoot out. He was charged with attempted murder of his bodyguard as he maintains, to this day, that he did not shoot him. He was also shot in the leg during that fiasco. Troy claims he was firing off his gun in self-defense.
