Troy Ave Recounts 2016 Shooting On 12-Minute Track, “Amazing Grace” + Drops ‘Dope Boy Troy’ Mixtape

blame it on Meka March 23, 2017

Troy Ave will officially release his first project of 2017, Dope Boy Troy, later tonight (March 24th). Before its release, however, Troy shares one more song off of the project, “Amazing Grace.”

Produced by Olli Smallz, the 12-minute song details his X-Mas 2016 shooting which left bullets in his head, back and lung. According to Troy, he actually looked the attempted murderer in the eyes, shortly before the shooter opened fire into his Maserati while going to meet his family for the holidays, and was even on the phone with his mother while he and a passenger were struck with bullets, then had to head on foot to the hospital a quarter-mile away with gunshot wounds before a good samaritan picked the two up on the side of the road.
