Lil Tjay arrested in the Bronx, faces gun possession charges
Platinum rapper Lil Tjay was reportedly detained by police on Monday (January 16) for gun possession in the Bronx, per WABC. Police say the “Give You What You Want” hit-maker and four others were riding through West 183rd Street and Ryer Avenue in a black Cadillac Escalade when they stopped and searched them before finding four handguns. The 21-year-old is facing criminal possession of weapon charges.
The arrest follows the June 2022 near-death incident where Tjay was shot in the chest several times in an attempted robbery in Edgewater, New Jersey.
