First and foremost my deepest condolences to the family & friends of Ronald Mcphatter who was tragically killed last night. Despite having to cope with more senseless violence. I woke up to the usual FALSE and ridiculous lies being circulated by irresponsible members of the media. What transpired was absolutely NOT the result of MYSELF or ANYBODY IN MY CAMP , ENTOURAGE, TRAVELING PARTY or ORGANIZATION IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM. We entered the venue respectfully as always and exited in shocked like all other concertgoers. For the last 5 years Troy Ave, his team and I have had a great working relationship. Not only have we performed and done several songs together but we’ve had many personal conversations about life our goals and efforts as musicians. Despite media reports to the contrary, there are No “ongoing beefs” or “entourage issues.” It always has been and always will be good relations between myself AND MY TEAM and @TroyAve @Hovain @YoungLitoBsB and the BSB crew. Our deepest sympathies again to family of Ronald McPhatter and a speedy recovery to Troy Ave. The movement will not be stopped. #BROOKLYNUNITED #HEARDYOU

Ronald Mcphatters mother’s is now demanding answers. Rose Mcphatters says her son died the way he lived.
” He Actually Cared Alot About Troy Ave, said Rose. My Wish Is That Troy Ave Cared As Much About My Son, As He Cared About Him. I Say That Because How My Son Would Always Bend Over Backwards To Help Him. If He Cared About My Son, As He Alleged He Does, I Would’ve Received A Call From Him. He Didn’t Call Any Of My Other Sons “
