Troy Ave (born: Roland Collins) appeared in criminal court in Manhattan Monday and pleaded not guilty to an attempted murder charge linked to the deadly shooting at Irving Plaza last Wednesday (May 25). During the hearing, Troy’s lawyer, Scott Leemon, also claimed the Brooklyn rapper was a victim in the incident, according to New York Daily News.

“What really happened here is Mr. Collins here is the real victim,” Leemon said. He also claimed Ronald “BSBBanga” McPhatter, a former member of Troy’s entourage who was killed that night, was not shot by Troy. “The person who was killed at this event, he died a hero. He (McPhatter) was his bodyguard. He wasn’t shot by Mr. Collins. He was a lifelong friend.”

Leemon has a long history of defending rappers in legal proceedings, most notably 50 Cent and Jim Jones, the latter of which has used the ad-lib “leeemon” in several instances.
