Taking to Twitter on Thursday (April 19), the “Money Dance” rapper implied that taking Taxstone to court for defamation of character would be worthless because he doesn’t have any assets or money to speak of.
“If I sued this broke ass pancreatic fat n*** for defamation of character it would end up costing Me money😂 them lies ain’t adding up but neither is ya $$$ #DearHaterIWon,” he wrote.
Unfortunately, the response to Troy Ave’s proclamation didn’t go as the rapper planned. “It would end up costing me money — sounds like you the broke one, sir,” one commenter wrote.
Another added: “Well since live nation and irving plaza know your the 1 to start the altercation your not winning anything but you know that by now.”

Meanwhile, VladTV has reported that Taxstone’s sentencing has been pushed back about a month.
The podcaster, who last month was convicted of manslaughter, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon in relation to the death of Troy Ave’s bodyguard Ronald “Banga” McPhatter, was originally supposed to be sentenced on Wednesday (April 19). However, the sentencing date has now been pushed back to May 25.
Since the 2016 shooting death of his bodyguard, Troy Ave has been beefing, extensively, with several different parties. In addition to his beef with Taxstone, the Brooklyn-born rapper has been getting into it with Maino, Joe Budden, Mysonne, and others.
He recently crystallized all this hatred into “Money Dance 1-2-3,” a retooling of the 2021 track of the same name. Produced by Team Nova Boyz and Rolando Big Time, the reworked “diss” title is linked to the drama surrounding the death of Banga.
Troy Ave’s “Money Dance 1-2-3” is not to be confused with his 2017 track “Money Dance,” taken from his Album of the Summer mixtape.
