"About to run up in the court," said Troy in a video. "They might cheat me, you might not see me for a while. But just know the streets is a myth. All them people that was in the car with me, I end up taking the guns. Somebody shot at me, and instead of laying down and dying, I’d have been a hero, a martyr, I took the gun and bust back."
 
"There you have it, here come the consequences," he added. "But we don’t cry over spilt milk. You take the lemons and you make lemonade. God is great and paper straight. Y’all keep supporting and keep running it up. And send prayers; prayers count more than anything."

In a statement, Troy's attorney, John B. Stella, said the rapper was sentenced to one year but may be getting out in a matter of months.

"Roland was sentenced on 2/9/24 to 1 year jail on his plea to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in the 2nd degree,"said Stella. "Under the law he must serve 8 months to satisfy that sentence. Since he previously spent almost 2 months in jail before he made bail, the remaining balance of time he must serve is a little over 6 months."

A lot has happened since the shooting, which took place at a T.I. concert.

Troy's bodyguard Ronald "Banga" McPhatter was killed, and the shooter, Taxstone, was sentenced to 35 years. The rapper testified against him in court, which got him a shorter sentence.
