Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave won’t let a few bullets slow him down. The hip-hop artist has finally spoken out on his near-death shooting in New York.

Ave went to Instagram Monday (December 26) with footage of his release from a hospital and update on his condition.


A few hours ago, details surfaced about Ave’s well-being and possible hospital release.

A CT scan Monday showed one bullet still in his head, his lawyer John Stella said. “They are discharging him today,” he said. “He is very sore. The doctors told the family that he came dangerously close to having a spinal cord injury, but it looks like there’s no lasting damage from the wound track.” (New York Daily News)

Last night, G-Unit’s 50 Cent went to his Instagram page and showed off a pic of himself alongside Ave.


Hours prior, details surfaced about Troy’s near-death shooting.

Rapper Troy Ave was shot twice Sunday while sitting in his red Maserati in Brooklyn, sources said. The shooting unfolded in Canarsie at East 91st Street and Linden Blvd at around 4:20 p.m, according to police. The hometown hip-hop star was grazed in the head and struck once in the arm as he sat alone in the six-figure sports car, cops said. His shooter walked up and opened fire without warning — blasting out the driver-side window, cops said. (New York Post)
