The rivalry between Troy Ave and Taxstone seems never-ending. It reached bloody heights in 2016 when Taxstone allegedly shot and killed Troy Ave’s Ronald "Banga" McPhatter, and shot Troy in both legs. The star had this to say about the incident. “When the shot goes off I see the light from the spark and I hear the shot. This is all happening fast. I get up and start fighting Taxstone, trying to take him, grab the gun, and another shot goes off. I put my leg up to kind of block the shot from hitting me in the face or chest.” Troy evidently had more to say about Taxstone because he recently released his diss track “Black Church "Taxstone Diss."
“Black Church” is a very heated track where Troy Ave fully unleashes all his rage toward Taxstone. “Opposition I ruin them/ There’s two sides, you gotta be safe in choosing them,/Ain’t have a safety on since then be smart, though/When n****s dumping Troy Ave ain’t scared of nothing ” Troy raps. He continues “He backed the gun, somehow I sent him running, I got a lawsuit coming/You took a life but look at the life this generation is bumming/I wouldn’t wanna live like that, Back to Live Nation and my $32 million, no tax.”
Troy Ave Lays It All Out
These lyrics make reference to what reportedly happened between the two in 2016. According to his Instagram reveal, this song will be a part of an album entitled “Dear Hater, I Won.” The Instagram reveal was captioned “Drop some in the comments.. y’all love and support been crazy thank y’all US NEVER THEM #FreeTroyAve Album • Dear Hater I Won (COMING SOON) Label • THE ALMIGHTY BSB RECORDS.”
This isn’t the first time Troy has taken digs at Taxstone on social media. A few days before the trial Taxstone tweeted “Can’t wait for this delusional lying ass bozo to testify on Monday !!!”. Troy Ave was quick to clap back: “A call to action is crazy ‘I can’t wait’ Said the person with nothing but time…his friends cooked him VERY WELL DONE! I might jus bring the dessert, wat kind y’all want!? #UnSafeTho.” What are your thoughts on the situation? Let us know in the comments below.
