So lets star this off informing T.I. headlined a show at Irving Plaza in NYC which ended in disaster Wednesday night after multiple shots were fired leaving at least 3 people wounded and 1 person dead. Witness accounts detail an altercation that started in or around the VIP section before eventually spilling out into the main stage area. Although Tip was the biggest name on the bill, it doesn’t appear that he or anybody in his camp was in any way involved in the incident.
Also on the bill last night were Maino, Uncle Murda, Troy Ave, Anderson .Paak, PNB Rock and a few others. According to a report from Karen Civil that seems to have now been corroborated by XXL, WPIX 11 and various other outlets, Troy Ave was grazed in the leg. Not exactly sure of the extent of his wounds, or if he is one of the 3 people said to be wounded, but here’s to hoping he’s ok.
