More information about the spring 2016 shooting comes to light.
Daryl “Taxstone” Campbell, host of the popular podcast Tax Season, was arrested this morning in Brooklyn in connection to a shooting at a T.I. concert at New York’s Irving Plaza on May 25 of last year. NBC News 4 reports Campbell was “wanted on a federal warrant charging him with being a felon in possession of firearm and was also being sought by the NYPD in relation to the Irving Plaza shooting.”
Campbell was previously incarcerated at Rikers Island from 2006-2009 for robbery and gun possession charges and jointed Twitter in 2009, where he became popular under the Taxstone moniker. He launched his podcast in March 2015. A profile on Campbell published in October by The Ringer reports that he has spent a total of seven years in prison.
Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave has been the central figure of the Irving Plaza shooting, having both been a victim and an alleged shooter. He, along with two other victims, are in the process of suing Live Nation over security concerns at the venue.
