Troy Ave, "2 Legit 2 Quit"

Subtlety is certainly not part of rapper Troy Ave’s intentions in the insane new video for “2 Legit 2 Quit,” a cut from his White Christmas 5 mixtape.

The video is -- even in its cartoon format -- a considerably graphic comic-book-style depiction of the rapper’s plans to avenge whoever shot him on Christmas day in 2016. The visuals are a play-by-play of what happened that day, with Ave promising his shooter he would've been dead had he not been without a gun due to his probation at the time.  

“I do murder without a sound,” he raps. “I do murder and don’t get found.”

Ave continues, going after hip-hop podcast personality Taxstone, who was indicted this summer for murdering Ave's bodyguard Ronald “Banga” McPhatter, in a shooting in May 2016. The shots that killed Banga were allegedly due to an initial argument between Taxstone and Ave, who was also arrested for attempted murder and weapons charges for the same incident. The video shows Ave seated in court, flipping the middle finger and testifying against an assumed Taxstone. 

Taxstone has been in jail for the murder for almost two years, but it seems like Ave is definitely not ready for any sort of reconciliation. Check out the full video below.
