Last week Troy Ave dropped his song "2 Legit 2 Quit," where he seemed to say that he'll testify against Daryl "Taxstone" Campbell. Taxstone is currently behind bars and facing murder charges in connection with the shooting at Irving Plaza that killed Troy's bodyguard Ronald 'Banga' McPhatter.
On Monday, The Brooklyn rapper stopped by The Breakfast Club. He avoided questions on whether he'll testify against Taxstone and instead addressed the concept of snitching on a whole.
"If you're talking about your life and everything you go through, I been doing that," said Troy. "At what point is it snitching if you're talking about yourself? I'm good because I sparked a debate. With the debate that I sparked, not talking about my case, but just in general, eight out of 10 people will be like, 'I'm not going to jail for somebody else.'"
Troy also said there's a difference between testifying against someone that you did a crime with and testifying against someone who harmed one of your friends. The Brooklyn rapper also said that staying loyal to the streets and all of its rules is stupid.
"The streets is a myth. It's not real," he stated. "Nowhere in the real world does the streets count. People have street cred through the roof but their credit score is 500. People in the streets put those type of rules in place to manipulate. The manipulation stagnates [people's] growth and you stay in an ignorant mind frame."
What do you think about Troy's words? Does staying true to the streets and its rules really get you anything?
