New York rapper Lil Tjay was shot and seriously injured in a shootout. Operated, his state of health would be stable according to the police…

Mixing drill, trap and R&B, at 21, Lil Tjay is part of the young guard of New York rap (like Fivio Foreign or the late Pop Smoke, murdered in 2020). A native of the Bronx in New York, the young rapper who had a meteoric rise (although his last album, Destined 2 Win , did not meet with the expected commercial success) released his latest music video, In My Head, at the beginning of April. But by building a solid fanbase, he even imposed his rap to our borders. However, if he now devotes himself to music, Tione Jayden Merritt – his real name – is never far away when it comes to raising his fist or indulging in crime (robbery, theft, etc.). Incarcerated for 1 year in a youth center when he was only 15, involved in affairs with 6ix9ine and Lil Durk in 2020, he even got into a fight when he came to London for a concert in November 2021 and had been arrested again on December 30, 2021 for possession of drugs and firearms. But this time, we came close to drama whenthe rapper was hit by gunfire (7 times) in Edgewater, New Jersey, during 2 shootings that occurred on Wednesday, June 22 . As TMZ reports, gunshots were heard both at a restaurant called Chipotle, but also at an Exxon gas station. Seriously injured, Lil Tjay was quickly transferred to hospital in critical condition, while a second person hit by a bullet was hospitalized without his life being in danger.

After undergoing emergency surgery, the Edgewater Police Department and the Bergen County District Attorney announced in a joint statement that Lil Tjay was cleared and is now in stable condition. If an investigation was opened, the police had quickly announced the drama on the networks insisting that it was not an isolated act: “ At approximately 12:08 p.m. on June 22, Edgewater Police Services responded to a 911 call reporting a shooting at that address. Responding officers found a 22-year-old victim with multiple gunshot wounds at 478 River Road, Edgewater, where they located another 22-year-old victim who also had gunshot woundsThe 2 victims were transported to a hospital in the region where they are being treated On Twitter, his ex-girlfriend, Rubi Rose , had a thought for the rapper: “Pray for Tjay” , just like French Montana .
