Before emerging as an internet heartthrob with streams in the multi-millions, Lil Tjay was just a kid with humble beginnings in the Bronx. Delving deeper into his story reveals the compelling biography of a young individual who endured the burdens of adult sins and their consequences, all before he was old enough to drive. Growing up in an NYC neighbourhood entrenched in gang culture, Lil Tjay found himself facing a year of incarceration. However, upon regaining his freedom, he devoted himself to pursuing his musical aspirations and the recording studio became his saving grace and destiny.

Since then, Lil Tjay has captivated the rap scene at a young age with his signature swag and blaring bars that have garnered him an audience of millions. His debut album True 2 Myself features platinum-certified hits F.N., Brothers, Leaked, Hold On, Ruthless, One Take and GOAT.

His collab release Calling My Phone featuring 6LACK debuted at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became Lil Tjay’s highest chart debut and career chart peak. Across all releases, Lil Tjay has accumulated over 9.3 billion global streams and was featured as one of XXL’s Freshman Class 2020 and Billboard’s 21 Under 21.

Most recently, Lil Tjay unveiled June 22nd. The track is lifted from Lil Tjay’s recently released album 222. This project showcases Lil Tjay’s growth and evolution as an artist and is the first body of work since his 2021 platinum-certified release of Destined 2 Win. The 15-track album features note-worthy, star-studded lineup of collaborations including Polo G, NBA Youngboy, Summer Walker, The Kid Laroi and more.
