The Brooklyn rapper busted for his alleged role in a gun fight that left his pal dead at a T.I. concert posted bail and was released Monday – but he won’t be back on stage anytime soon.
The package forbids Roland Collins, whose stage name is Troy Ave, from entering clubs, bars, arenas or stadiums, and requires that he wear a GPS ankle bracelet and stick to an 11 p.m. curfew.
After the $500,000 bond was posted, Collins, 33, limped out of court wearing a Givenchy sweatshirt over his shoulders and matching Givenchy slip-on sandals.
He has been in custody since the day after a wild May 25 shootout at Irving Plaza in Union Square that left him with a gunshot wound to his right leg, his bodyguard and pal Ronald McPhatter dead and two others injured.
He declined to comment as his family and friends helped him into a waiting white Mercedes SUV blaring his single “Chuck Norris (Hoes & Gangstas),” which was released after his arrest on attempted murder and gun possession charges.
On the track, he brags, “I’m a pretty fly ni—a that’ll shoot ya.”
Prosecutors said that the details surrounding the shooting-death of McPhatter, 33, remain murky.
“What is clear is that the investigation has, from the outset, been hampered by the defendant, who not only fired and then removed the weapon from the crime scene, but has, along with his entourage, refused to help investigators in any way bring the person who killed his friend to justice,” said ADA Joshua Steinglass during the bail hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Collins still hasn’t been ruled out as McPhatter’s shooter, the prosecutor added.
