Three months after the most recent shooting, in which Lil Tjay was shot numerous times, Tjay uploaded a photo of himself with 50 Cent. In the caption, Tjay made a reference to the song “Many Men” from 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ album, in which the renowned New York rapper talks about being shot himself.
A TikTok video of Tjay singing “I’m Supposed to Die Tonight” by 50 from his 2005 album The Massacre was also shared. Following his own shooting, some fans have speculated that Tjay intends to release a remix of “Many Men” as a result of the posts.
Tjay was wounded in a shooting that put him in the hospital back in June, but since then, the 21-year-old has miraculously recovered. He posted a video of himself walking last week that was taken soon after surgery. “The blogs said I was paralyzed and couldn’t walk,” wrote Lil Tjay in the video that features his song, “Beat The Odds.” “But I started walking a week after surgery. I beat the odds.”
Regarding 50 Cent, he famously made it through being shot nine times in the beginning of his career and used it as motivation to become more dedicated to making music. See Tjay with 50 Cent in the photo below.
