After the deadly Irving Plaza shooting at what was billed as a T.I. show that left one dead and three injured, including rapper Troy Ave, earlier this month, Tip steered clear of the case but weighed in on Troy Ave's situation.

"I'm not gonna get into any discussion or details of any criminal case for anybody. That's what lawyers are for," he told TMZ. "I got a lot of love for Troy and I just think he has enormous potential. I know he has his own relationship with God. All he gotta do is keep God first and he'll pull through."
