Troy Ave, arrested on an attempted murder and weapons possession charges after a shooting at a T.I. concert in New York City on May 25, has been released on $500,000 bail. The 33-year-old Brooklyn rapper, who was shot in both legs on that night, will wear an ankle bracelet monitor and is not permitted to leave NYC, including to visit his two children, who live in New Jersey. 

The New York Daily News reports:

"Collins must also stay away from all concert halls, bars, arenas and other performance venues. The order essentially handcuffs his career while the case is pending and he will be missing a number of shows he was contracted to perform at, his attorney John Stella said."

On June 22, Troy Ave—birth name Roland Collins—pleaded not guilty in the death of his bodyguard and childhood friend, Roland McPhatter. 

DNAinfo spoke to Troy Ave's mother, Tracey Collins, on Monday, who "said she's looking forward to cooking broccoli rabe, penne and sausage for her son and catching up on Game of Thrones with him." She paused Season 6 when her son got locked up, specifically looking forward to this moment.
