Someone is out to kill Ronald “Troy Ave” Collins, as he has become a victim again from the second attempt on his life.  The first time he was shot was back in May at Irving Plaza during a shootout at T.I. concert performance.  Troy Ave’s long time friend was shot and killed during the same shooting, while Troy escaped with his life, but still suffered a self-inflicted bullet wound to his leg.

Now, just yesterday on Christmas Day, while trying to spend time with his family, Troy Ave had another attempt on his life.  Him and his girlfriend was sitting in a car on E. 91st St. and Linden Blvd. in East Flatbush Brooklyn at about 4:20 p.m. on his way to see his family and celebrate the holidays when reportedly a lone gunman let off shots at his Maserati leaving him leaking.  Troy was able to drive himself to the hospital.

Fortunately, although Troy Ave was hit multiple times, his attorney has reported that the shots were non-life threatening, as he was shot in the arm and grazed in the head.  This cat has nine lives and has been extremely lucky.  The motive for the assault is speculative, as no suspects have been identified or arrested.

50 Cent is standing by Troy Ave’s side and has visited him in the hospital.  The legendary NY rapper has been by Troy’s side since the Irving Plaza shooting.  The two are developing quite the bond.  Let’s hope for a speedy recovery for Troy Ave and let’s hope he stays safe on these streets.  It’s not a game outchere’.

Kevin Gates Going to Jail for kicking fan

Rapper Kevin Gates received surprising news as his trial hearing this week.  He has been sentenced to 6 months in jail after being convicted of assault and battery for kicking a female fan, 19-year old Miranda DIxon, at a Polk County, Florida nightclub last year.

Gates attorney, Jose Baez argued his client was repeatedly badgered by the woman prior to the cellphone recording that witnessed the brutal kick.  However, the jury wasn’t hearing any of that and came back from deliberation with a guilty verdict.  The jury requested 60 days behind bars, but the judge unhappy with Gates antics up’d the bid to 180 days.

Here’s the video of the kick that led to the sentencing.

T.I. and Killer Mike started a campaign to have rappers move their money to local black banks.  This has been a long time coming.  They have both opened accounts in Atlanta at the black owned bank, Citizen Trust Bank.

They’ve encouraged others to do the same, such as Young Thug and Young Dolph.  They’ve also encouraged Houston rappers to make the same move at the local black-owned bank in H-Town, Unity National Bank. This included Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Willie D, Trae The Truth, and others

To commemorate this historic moment T.I. and Killer Mike took to their Instagram accounts to show the festive occassion.  On the show What Now? MTV Town Hall Meeting, Killer Mike asked the people to move their dollars into black owned banks.  Since making this request, Citizen Trust Bank reported that an additional 8,000 accounts have been opened.

This is a big move for the black community, and hopefully more rappers as well as, athletes, actors and other celebrities will follow suit.  I think it’s important we show solidarity in this manner and make efforts to empower our communities.  Now, it’s all up to the black banks to start doing good and honest business with black people and if so, this could be the first phase of change for our people.

Do your part and put your money in your local black bank.  Even if it’s just a percentage of your income, it can create change.  Here’s a list of black owned banks in America,
