Unless Troy Ave coughs up $20,000, a shady character will release a sex tape they claim feature his bedroom acrobatics. Yesterday, the Harlem rapper posted on Instagram a screenshot of back-and-forth texts he had with the crook. The thief says they have a deal pending with The Shade Room for $20,000. Apparently, Troy Ave, whose album White Christmas 4 drops Friday, will have none of it.

Troy said he made the tape to use for a music video -- with the X-rated parts edited of course. He invites the highway robber to release the sex tape saying, "it ain't like I'm doing some freaky R. Kelly shit all me and my fans care about us my freedom." The rapper's still going to release his music video.

At the time this article was published, no sex tape video of Troy Ave doing the nasty has gone viral yet.
