On MLK Day, Brooklyn personality Taxstone (born Daryl Campbell) was arrested after he was allegedly linked to the gun used in last May’s Irving Plaza shooting that resulted in one fatality and rapper Troy Ave’s arrest. Today, Taxstone, 31, bail is set to $500,000 after investigators found his DNA on the gun used in the shooting, according to DNAinfo. Police are also using comments he made on his podcast Tax Season against him.
“When I see you walking up with six dudes, bang-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba,” he said in the contested comments (Taxstone has been feuding with Troy Ave for years). “I want to embarrass somebody, and that’s why I started bullying Troy Ave, you know what I mean?”
