Troy Ave Says Read His Lips: "[I'm] The Second Coming Of 2Pac, New Pac" [Video]
New York rapper Troy Ave is going to have social media going crazy. The hip-hop artist has proclaimed himself the new Tupac Shakur.
In a new interview, Troy Aveli likened himself to the late hip-hop icon.
"I go in the motherf*cking clubs and n*ggas is going crazy, in the clubs and the streets where they're playing all the f*cking trap music, all types of sh*t. N*ggas go crazy. 'Oh sh*t, that's Troy Ave.' N*gga, is the second coming of 2Pac. New Pac. I go do shows, n*gga, everything different. The handshakes different. N*gga, women suck a n*gga d*ck different. Everything is different, n*gga. N*gga, I said [I'm] the new Pac. I said that's how it feel. Everything is different." ("The Breakfast Club")

Recently, Troy spoke out on his now-infamous 2016 near-fatal New York concert shooting.
"I wear bulletproof vests. You see I had to take off my vest before we sat down here. But I've just been through so much, I'm not letting nobody kill me. Nobody's taking my life. I'm going in just to build on my dream and I'm like, 'Wow. I'm in New York City. Tip's got a show. T.I.'s got a show. I'ma come out. Everybody's gonna go crazy like, 'Oh, Troy Ave. He's one of us. It's the Brooklyn boy. He made it independent." [The viral video of me shooting?] I'll say that video doesn't show everything and I would love to talk to you more about it but I'm facing a serious case. My freedom's on the line. I could go to jail for 20 years." (Fox 5)
Earlier this year, Ave's attorney issued a statement on an arrest being made in the case.
"I view the charges brought today before the SDNY as a positive step in the direction of true justice for what occurred at Irving Plaza that night," the Brooklyn rapper said in a statement through his lawyer, John B. Stella. "As we have said since May 26, 2016, Roland Collins (Troy Ave) did not enter Irving Plaza with a handgun the night of the TI concert," his lawyer Stella, said in a statement. "He was not responsible for the four shots fired inside the Green Room that took the life of his dear friend (Ronald) McPhatter, and caused injury to him and two other innocent bystanders." (Bossip)
Back in late December, Troy reflected on dodging death and surviving a separate shooting.
