Brooklyn rap veteran Fabolous recently shared his thoughts on fellow New York rapper Troy Ave catching an attempted murder charge and explained how he tries to stay out of potentially dangerous situations.
Talking to radio personalities DJ Envy and Angela Yee this week, Fab said he is always cautious of environments he is placed in.
“I think it definitely does,” Fab said when asked if he thinks differently about how he goes out following his own past incidents. “I think you just gotta be aware of your surroundings, be aware of where you’re going and how you move. I got a lot more experience in it but even when I see certain people and certain energies and certain faces. … They gotta experience [those situations too]. My thing came from experience. Me seeing different entourages and energies and mean-muggin’. You can tell when something is not [right]. Even if I need to be there, I come there, do what I gotta do and get out of there because you don’t want to be a part of something that ain’t even for you anyway.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Although careful with his words, rapper YG recently said he understood the decisions Troy made in a now-infamous New York concert shooting.
“It’s sad homie,” YG said about the recent New York shooting. “Troy, that’s my dude, you feel me? One time for Troy. That’s sad ’cause, I don’t even want to say what I want to say on mic, on air, but it’s the same thing. I don’t know bro because I feel like this – if I got popped, I would have done the same thing. I would have made my way out that joint. Period. And that just goes for anybody. Reaction. Protocol. I don’t know, man, it’s sad, I mean, it was backstage at a concert so the first shot shouldn’t have went off like right there.” (WSHH)
A few days prior, prosecutors announced Ave’s indictment on multiple felony charges.

Earlier this month, Troy proclaimed his innocence and intent to receive bail from jail.
“I lost my best friend and the worst part about it is I didn’t realize he was my best friend until I lost him. And that sh*t hurts worse than these bullets from when I got shot. It’s out of the elements, out of my control, can’t do nothing but pour salt into the wound. … I got no choice but to adapt – Shout-out to everyone that’s been supporting me. It’s Free Troy Ave. As soon as I get a bail I’m up out of here and then the world will know the truth. They’ll know I’m innocent.” (DatPiff)
