Rapper Lil Tjay reportedly shot and in emergency surgery

American rapper Lil Tjay was reportedly shot in New Jersey last night.

On Wednesday (June 22), TMZ reported the Bronx, N.Y. rapper was one of the victims of a double shooting that took place in Edgewater, N.J. just after midnight last night. The extent of Lil Tjay’s injuries is not known at this time, but the rapper was transported to the hospital where he is undergoing emergency surgery.

The shootings occurred at two nearby locations: a Chipotle restaurant and an Exxon gas station. Lil Tjay was one of two people injured during the shootings. The identity of the second victim has not been released. Police are investigating the crimes and currently do not have a suspect in custody.

XXL has reached out to Lil Tjay’s team and the Edgewater Police Department for comment.

Legal issues seem to have surrounded the rapper over the last few years. Back in April, Lil Tjay made headlines after a man accused the “Calling My Phone” artist of robbing him at gunpoint. The rhymer never responded to the allegations. Last November, Lil Tjay was captured on video in a huge brawl after someone allegedly tried to take his chain following a show on his Destined 2 Win Tour in Europe. He later denied the fight was the result of an attempted chain-snatching.

“If a nigga really tried to take my chain, it would have been a lot of those right there,” Lil Tjay said in an Instagram video while police cruisers coincidentally rode by in the opposite direction. “I ain’t gon’ lie.”

In December of 2020, he was arrested in New York City after police searched him and found guns and drugs.

Lil Tjay released his sophomore album, Destined 2 Win, last April. The LP debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. He is currently working on a new project, Strictly4MyFans. In April, he released the new single “Going Up.”
