AceShowbiz - Lil Tjay fans have been provided with another positive update on his condition. A new video has surfaced online, showing the rapper apparently awake at the hospital after he got shot in New Jersey last month.
In the video posted by DJ Akademiks on Instagram on Monday, July 4, the New York City native is seen having a video call with his friends or relatives from the hospital. "Apparently this is a video of lil tjay in the hospital," the YouTuber captioned the clip.
In the footage, some unseen folks are excited to see Tjay getting better. "He good, he good," one woman is heard shouting, while another demands that the 21-year-old "say something." Another person remarks, "Tjay is good."
Upon watching the video, fans expressed their gratitude that Tjay is recovering well after the unfortunate incident. "All praise to the most high," one person wrote in the comment section of DJ Akademiks' post. Another hailed God, "All the glory be to must high."
"Glad bro okay fr," a third fan commented. Another wished him a full recovery, "You will get better bro, God bless you," as another wrote, "Praying for a speedy recovery." One other said, "He definitely moving keep moving brodie you got this," while someone else chimed in, "I hope he's able to come back fully."
Tjay was shot multiple times in the chest and neck area in Edgewater, New Jersey in the early hours of June 22. It was reported at the time that there were two shooting sites, one at a Chipotle Restaurant and another at a nearby Exxon Gas station. Antoine Boyd, 22, also of the Bronx, who was with Tjay, was shot in the back, but survived.
The shooting suspect, Mohamed Konate of New York City, was arrested later that day. He was charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder, three counts of first-degree armed robbery, and multiple weapons offenses. Antoine and Jeffery Valdez, who was also with Tjay but was not injured, were also arrested for second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, but charges were later dropped.
In late June, TMZ reported that the "Calling My Phone" rapper was awake and talking. Sources further told the outlet that "doctors recently removed his breathing tube, and when speaking, his voice sounds just like it did before the scary incident."
