The Daily Late Nightly Show (Shot Dead)

The New Guy


Trevor’s last guest this week is supposed to be Tip “T.I.” Harris.

This will be somewhat interesting. During last night’s concert at Irving Plaza, a Manhattan club, one of the rappers in a supporting act, identified as Troy Ave, opened fire in the Green Room above the stage area and killed an associate of his, Ronald McPhatter. Three other people were shot including Troy Ave who is now under arrest for attempted murder and criminal possession of a fire arm.

Two of them were apparently concert goers unrelated to the dispute.

One bullet pierced the floor and struck a 34-year-old man in the chest, Chief Boyce said, and a 26-year-old woman who was in the V.I.P. area was hit in the leg. They both remained at Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, according to the police.

Even in The City (or especially) people understand that it’s not survival thinking to just stand around when there are bullets flying around so there was a rush for the exits in which several more were injured.

This has caused somewhat of a stir in New York City media, or at least WCBS Newsradio 88 (Traffic and Weather together on the 8s at 8, 18, 28, 38, 48, and 58 minutes past the hour) which I listen to when I’m driving. Some officials like William J. Bratton, the police commissioner, were quick to condemn Rap Music as celebrating a culture of drugs and violence. Mayor DiBlasio had a more nuanced take and said that most Rap Music didn’t celebrate drugs and violence and that there were plenty of other genres that also had isolated examples of that kind of sentiment.

While it would certainly be interesting and topical if Trevor had T.I. perform tonight I don’t think it will happen and I’d be pleasantly surprised if he mentioned it at all.

Another interesting thing to see tonight is if Neil Young addresses the fact that he has withdrawn his objection to Donald Trump (who just today secured the last delegates needed to become the Republican nominee for President) using his music in campaign appearances.
