Christmas Day 2016 took George Michael and attempted to pull Troy Ave from us after he was shot in Brooklyn on his way home for Christmas.

According to reports, Troy was at a stop light, driving a red Maserati convertible when someone opened fire on his car striking him in the arm and grazing his head.

The 34-year-old Brooklyn performer, whose real name is Roland Collins, was sitting in a car on E. 91st St. and Linden Blvd. in East Flatbush at about 4:20 p.m., when an attacker came up to him and opened fire, sources said.

The rapper is now in stable condition, and was even visited by 50 Cent at the hospital yesterday.

We’re glad Troy made it out of 2016 alive.
