Taxstone Pleads Guilty to Irving Plaza Shooting, Faces Up to 20 Years in Federal Prison

Daryl “Taxstone” Campbell, a popular Philadelphia podcaster, pleaded guilty to two federal weapon charges in connection with the 2016 Irving Plaza that claimed the life of Troy Ave’s bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter.

Taxstone copped to possessing a firearm as a felon and receiving a firearm in interstate commerce relating to the shootout, per NY Daily.

Although Tax, 31, dodged a federal murder charge, lawyers handling the case reportedly told Judge Lorna Schofield he brought a firearm to Irving Plaza and fired the deadly shot.

Prosecutors say Taxstone’s DNA was found on the murder weapon used during the shooting, along with Ave’s DNA. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has charged Ave with attempted murder for his alleged involvement in the incident, but the rapper claims he was acting in self-defense.

Taxstone was originally indicted in February 2017, nearly one year after the shooting.

He faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
