Regarding Troy Ave. and his purportedly phony chain that he is allegedly in possession of, Maino has voiced his personal complaints.
In a 30-minute YouTube video posted on Friday (March 31), the "Hi Hater" artist launched a composed yet vicious tirade against the Brooklyn rapper.
“Troy Ave, you’re a very funny guy, man,” Maino began. “You’ve always been funny, you always amuse me. I always thought that you was comical. I never took you serious. I never believed, none of us ever did, we never believed you. The only person that thought that you was important was you, brotha.”
Maino continued by saying that he has no issue with Troy Ave because “you could’ve never been a problem for me.” From there, he expounded on why he’s in possession of the alleged fake chain in the first place.
“I brought something for you that I’ve been keeping on ice for a long time,” Maino said. “I been holdin’ this because I figured at some point, I’d have to put you back in your place. This is your Jesus piece. This is the Jesus piece that you wore every single day. You got up, you went to video shoots wit,’ you got up, you put this around your neck.
“You went to parties with this, you went to industry events with this. You did shows with this on. You took a lot of pictures with this on right here. Anybody that’s watching this can easily find pictures of this same chain around your neck.”
He continued: “The significant thing about this chain is, ’cause I don’t want people to think, ‘Oh, Maino grimey, he got his chain.’ This is the chain that Troy Ave was wearing when he got into his scuffle at Irving Plaza. And the reason why I held this chain is, not because I didn’t want to give it back, but because I just felt like maybe one day I’d have to step on him and remind him of who he really is. This chain is fake. The reason why I’ve been pointing this chain out is because you’ve been a liar since day one. You’ve built a small career on lies. You’ve built everything on lies.”
Troy and Maino have no beef, the rapper reaffirmed, believing that under duress Troy would cave and seek legal advice.
