Although it has been reported that Lil Tjay is alive and well, fans are baffled as to why they haven’t heard anything directly from him. No one from his camp has even issued an official statement about his health after he was shot so many times that he required emergency surgery.
Fans prayed and clamored for information for over a month, but… Apart from the occasional “report” released about him but not from him, there has been complete silence.
Rolling Loud 2022 has been one of the more credible sources that has attempted to keep fans up to date on Lil Tjay’s whereabouts. It was previously stated that the rapper would eventually perform at one of its festivals. It appears that it has no intention of disappointing its fans.
Rolling Loud has once again put on spectacular festivals in 2022. In the last month, they’ve held festivals in Portugal and Miami. Headliners for the Miami edition included Kid Cudi, Future, and Kendrick Lamar.
Cudi took the place of Kanye West, who was eventually introduced during Lil Durk’s performance. Future also introduced Travis Scott.
Rolling Loud is currently planning its annual New York festival, which will take place on September 23-25 at City Field in Queens. Nicki Minaj, A$AP Rocky, and Future will all perform over the course of three days.
Fans in New York City will also be able to catch performances by Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, and 21 Savage, among others.
Interestingly, Lil Tjay is on the first day’s lineup, despite the fact that fans are still waiting for him to perform. The released poster makes it clear that he will be attending the festival, and fans should be overjoyed.
After a harrowing fight for his life, he was finally discharged from the hospital, according to the last report. After all, he was shot seven times during an attempted robbery.
Rolling Loud also announced that another special guest performer, Playboi Carti, will join them in New York. He’ll be playing at City Field.
Carti also performed on day 2 of RL Miami. Fans can purchase Rolling Loud New York tickets that are already on the website.
As previously reported, Lil Tjay was shot on June 22 during an attempted robbery in Edgewater, New Jersey. According to police, Tjay and two friends, Jeffery Valdez and Antoine Boyd, were sitting in a vehicle near The Promenade when a gunman approached them and demanded cash and jewelry.
