Troy Ave recently opened up about the notorious 2016 shooting at a T.I. concert in Irving Plaza in New York City, claiming he was the hero in the incident.

Troy's friend Ronald “Banga” McPhatter died in the shooting and DNA evidence linked the podcast host Taxstone, who had beef with Troy, to the gun which killed Banga.

Taxstone pleaded guilty to gun charges and is currently behind bars. Troy has been charged with attempted murder and illegal weapon possession and will be back in court on September 13.

"Sh*t, everybody knows what happened. It ain’t even nothing to argue," Troy told AllHipHop. "They see that it’s not my gun, I never brought no gun in the club. DNA evidence proves that, so where’d I get it from? I got [the gun] from the assailant ... If this were to happen somewhere else, I would have been a hero. Because if you look at it, I saved mad people from getting shot. There are three other victims, more people could have died. If I didn’t do what I did, fought the gun away and wrestled."

"I went head-on with a gunman and by the grace of God, took the gun out his hand. So why am I not looked at as a hero? Why am I not praised like 'Wow this guy did something heroic?' Instead, the media paints you like he’s coming in the club shooting all crazy."

Would you call Troy a hero?
