NEW YORK (AP) — A judge has revoked bail for a hip-hop podcast host arrested in connection with a New York City concert venue shooting that left a rapper’s bodyguard dead.

A Manhattan federal court judge on Wednesday stripped away the $500,000 bail granted Tuesday to Daryl Campbell, also known as Taxstone.

Campbell was arrested Monday on a weapons charge stemming from the May shooting at Irving Plaza in Manhattan just before rapper T.I. was to perform. Prosecutors say Campbell killed Ronald McPhatter, a bodyguard for Brooklyn rapper Roland Collins, who performs as Troy Ave.

His defense lawyer, Kenneth Montgomery, says his client did not kill anyone. He says Campbell is “no angel” but had found redemption with his podcast and interviews.

Campbell is the host of the popular podcast Tax Season.

NEW YORK (AP) — Police have arrested a second man in connection with a fatal shooting at a popular Manhattan concert venue.

Authorities say 31-year-old Daryl Campbell, of Brooklyn, was arrested Monday on a charge of criminal possession of a weapon.

The May 25 shooting at Irving Plaza occurred just before the rapper T.I. was to perform.

A bodyguard of rapper Roland Collins, who performs as Troy Ave, was fatally wounded. Three other people, including Collins, were wounded.


Collins also was charged in the case, and was freed on $500,000 bail after pleading not guilty to an attempted murder charge.

Collins’ attorney says Collins didn’t shoot his bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter.

Then, while sitting in his car Dec. 25 at a Brooklyn intersection, Collins was shot in the arm and a bullet grazed his head.
