The well-known podcast personality Daryl Campbell a.k.a. Taxstone was recently arrested on January 16, 2017 on federal charges of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and Receipt of a Firearm in Interstate Commerce. The arrest is related to the May 2016 shooting in the green room of a T.I. concert at Irving Plaza. The incident resulted in the rapper Troy Ave being wounded and claimed the life of his body guard Ronald McPhatter. As a follower of Taxstone or Troy Ave may know, both have “beef” with each other.
