The street code is fake and shouldn't be followed. That's basically what Troy Ave wrote in a longwinded Instagram post about his money and legal woes.
Ever since the Brooklyn rapper suggested that he'd testify against Taxstone in the Irving Plaza shooting, he's gotten clowned by folks like 50 Cent, who dissed him on social media, which Casanova and Memphis Bleek co-signed.
On Thursday, underneath a photo of himself sitting in court, Troy expressed his disappointment with the streets and all those who let him down.
I Got arrested, Stayed in jail to "Kept it Real" cause I believed In "The Streets" .... #StreetsSay: Ya Friends/Homies "Suppose To" "handle business & put in work" while u down!? #StreetsSay: If u all get pulled over Ya homies "Suppose to" take the charge 4 u cause the "Money Earner / Provider" so business can continue. streets lied, this was Myth, when the pressure was on, I'm the only one who performed, all the homies & friends where out for they self, saying things like ... "I got kids, I can't go to jail etc. Im fighting for My freedom because of a "HATER , STALKER or the "cooler new word" a TROLL" it's all the same and it's all fake!

Do you agree with Troy? Is the street code a myth that shouldn't be followed?
