Lil TJay speaks out for the first since he was shot back in June.
We previously reported that the rapper was shot while in Edgewater, New Jersey. According to TMZ he was shot 7 times along with one other victim whose identity has not been disclosed. There were reportedly two shooting sites — one at a Chipotle Restaurant and another at a nearby Exxon Gas station.
After months recovering in the hospital, the rapper has spoken out publicly for the first time. He shares a video on Instagram thanking his fans for all of their love and support. He says, “It’s ya’ boy TJay. I’m just checking in with y’all. I just wanna say thanks for the love, thanks for the support. I feel loved- 7 shots, it was tough. Most people don’t survive it, but I’m here.”
He tells fans that he’s working on new music and that he’s going to “come back stronger than ever.”
