CIVIC CENTER — Rapper Troy Ave will have to wait until at least next month to see if his bail conditions will be loosened up by a judge.
Troy Ave, who faces attempted murder charges from a deadly May 25 shooting at Irving Plaza, was hoping to ask Judge Ronald Zweibel to lift the order preventing him from leaving New York City and banning him from performing in nightclubs or other venues, according to the rapper’s lawyer.
But that was put off because the judge still has to go over some of the evidence presented to the grand jury before he can decide on motions filed by the rapper’s lawyer.
Troy Ave, whose legal name is Roland Collins, has missed dozens of tour dates and lost tens of thousands of dollars due to the restrictions, his lawyer, John Stella, told DNAinfo New York on Friday.
Troy has had to cancel at least 50 tour dates since he was arrested days after police released surveillance footage of him opening fire in the concert hall, and he has been unable to schedule any new ones, Stella said.
That’s led to financial straits for the rapper, who paid his $500,000 bail by using his mother’s Crown Heights home as collateral, according to Stella.
