Troy Ave brags about taking the stand against Taxstone in new song

Brownsville, Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave dropped a track last night intimating that he will take the stand and testify against Taxstone, the New York personality of the “Tax Season” podcast.

Taxstone is currently being held without bond for the alleged murder of Troy Ave’s former bodyguard Ronald “Banga” McPhatter during an incident at Irving Plaza in Spring 2016.

On the new song “2 Legit 2 Quit”, Troy Ave raps about his apparent willingness to testify against Tax at about the 0:58 mark of the song.

“I’m only loyal to my fam/Middle finger from the stand/It’s either me or you.”

The corresponding visuals to “2 Legit 2 Quit” depict Troy Ave on the stand with his middle finger up. Shit is rather hotboy.

Not to mention, Tax is an extremely beloved figure in the hip-hop community. His podcast had become must-listen material for rap listeners.

Tax’s interviews brought a different perspective to the music and culture. Since his incarceration last January, there’s been a massive void in the podcast game.

As for Troy Ave, hip-hop Twitter lost its collective shit responding to Troy proudly claiming that he’ll testify against Tax.

Perhaps we should stop believing rappers….

Does this make Young MA the realest out?

Might wanna find a new career

Nino Brown ish

It’s a new era!

No comment…

Twitter fingers etc., etc.

As funny as some of the Twitter reactions were, this is obviously a pretty serious situation. It’d be great if it could be resolved simply without prison time for either individual, but that doesn’t appear to be an option.

Free Tax though.
