Rapper Troy Ave expected to be released from hospital in Brooklyn

The hip-hop artist is recovering in hospital after the attack. "Dope boy Troy all good, Merry Christmas", Fif captioned the bedside picture of the Brooklyn rapper looking better than you would expect for a guy who was just shot at on Christmas. The Brooklyn-born MC was reportedly shot in the arm and was grazed in the head by a bullet, and is in stable condition.

The 31-year old MC is now at Brookdale Hospital, in stable condition. Longtime rap mentor 50 Cent visited the rapper at the hospital.

This week's shooting comes less than one year after Troy was shot during an altercation at a concert at New York City's Irving Plaza.

Doctors say Troy Ave is "in a fair condition". At this time, no arrests have been made in connection with the shooting of Troy Ave. The lawyer adds that Sunday's incident proves that Troy Ave is still the victim, and was 'targeted.' Police have not confirmed that though, and there are no suspects at this time. The rapper was charged with attempted murder and he spent six weeks in jail. In May, Troy was shot at New York's Irving Plaza shortly after his bodyguard Ronald "Banga" McPhatter was shot and killed. He was released on July 11 on a $500,000 bond.

Collins had been en route to visit family for the holiday when shots broke out, according to ABC. "The venue had a duty to protect Troy, as an invited performer, and they failed him miserably", the rapper's lawyer said. Leemon referred to the shooting on Christmas Day as "the second attempt on his life".
