Prayers | Rapper Troy Ave shot twice while sitting in his Maserati

Rapper Troy Ave was shot twice Sunday while sitting in his red Maserati in Brooklyn, sources said. We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us but us which means there is no sparing of us. It’s without a shadow of a doubt that a judge should allow this man to move somewhere else but it will be up to Rapper Troy to stay discrete and get a new circle of people.

NYP: The shooting unfolded in Canarsie at East 91st Street and Linden Boulevard around 4:20 p.m, according to police. The hometown hip-hop star was grazed in the head and struck once in the arm as he sat in the six-figure sports car with his girlfriend, sources said.

His shooter walked up and opened fire without warning — blasting out the driver-side window, cops said. Ave, 34, cruised for a couple blocks before driving off the road and leaving behind the convertible Maserati, which was still facing the wrong way in the westbound lane of Linden Boulevard as of 8 p.m.

A good Samaritan took him to Brookdale Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, sources said. When asked how he was doing, a bandaged-up Ave told The Post, “Shot in the head, man,” before being wheeled away by medical staff. A photo that was later posted to Instagram by rapper 50 Cent showed the Brooklyn MC laid up in a hospital bed.

“Dope boy Troy all good,” the caption read. “Merry Christmas.”

Ave — born Roland Collins — was slapped with attempted murder and weapons possession charges earlier this year after he was involved in a shooting at Irving Plaza during a T.I. concert. The headline-grabbing incident left his friend and bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, dead and Ave with a gunshot wound to his right leg.

Despite surveillance footage that showed him firing a pistol, Ave pleaded not guilty and claimed that he was the victim of a calculated hit. He has long insisted that the weapon used to kill McPhatter didn’t belong to him or anyone in his entourage. Ave later rapped about the shooting, saying: “I’m a pretty fly ni—a that’ll shoot ya.” Cops are still investigating the Sunday incident and have not yet released a description of the suspect or suspects. Ave’s lawyer, Scott E. Leemon, released a statement afterward condemning those responsible.

“Tonight, Troy Ave was targeted again … on Christmas,” he said. “In Brooklyn, going to meet his family for the holiday, he was shot two times. Thankfully, he will survive the second attempt on his life.” “As we have said from the beginning — he is a victim,” Leemon added. “We pray for his speedy recovery.”
