G-Unit member Tony Yayo has paid homage to the memory of slain hip-hop artist Banga following a fatal New York concert shooting last week.
The “Talk of New York” relied on Instagram Tuesday (May 31) to remember Banga.
This week, Yayo’s mentor 50 Cent shared his thoughts on fellow rapper Troy Ave‘s involvement in the shooting.
A couple nights ago, fellow rapper Meek Mill posted up a pic of the New York rapper in a wheelchair and started up a “Free Troy Ave” hashtag.
This week, Troy Ave’s attorney spoke out on Banga losing his life from the fatal gunfire.
“In the hip hop world, he’s not known as one of these troublemakers. He doesn’t live a gangster rap lifestyle,” said attorney John Stella. “What really happened here is Mr. Collins here is the real victim,” said another Collins attorney, Scott Leemon. “The person who was killed at this event, he died a hero. He was his bodyguard. He wasn’t shot by Mr. Collins. He was a lifelong friend.” (NY Daily News)
