Even though he is currently behind bars awaiting trial on attempted murder (Click HERE if you missed that) rapper Troy Ave is doing something to support members of his community. Troy has set up an athletic scholarship at his former high school. This is also the same school that Troy’s friend Ronald ‘Banga’ McPhatter who was killed in the Irving Plaza shooting attended.

The scholarship will be given to a student at The New Utrecht High School each year. The individual who is awarded the scholarship will receive $2,000 a year for five years according to Troy’s lawyer.
