Listening deeper, that fatalism has always been there in Tjay’s music. The gravitas isn’t in the sound; it’s in what he’s saying: Bodies drop all the time, I don’t feel nothing.” Tjay is young, and he sounds young, his voice half-cracking as his cadences blur the line between flow and melody. But he’s got dimension. And if he can come up with more songs that hit people the way Pop Out” just hit me, then he’s going places.

With so many new cats coming into the rap game it is sometimes hard to keep track of who is who, so here is a little rundown the Leaked” rapper. Tione Merritt better known as Lil Tjay was born in 2001 and is one of the youngest rappers in the game. He started making music back in 2017 when he released, Resume” and Brothers” on the popular streaming platform SoundCloud. The 18 year has quite a few collaborations under his belt, with some a few being from major hiphop stars such as, French Montana and Thotiana ” rapper, Blueface He is currently signed to Columbia Records, and from the video posted by Akademiks, it’s clear to see why.
Lil Tjay was born Tione Dalyan Merritt and raised in the South Bronx area of New York City with his mother and siblings. In middle school, Lil Tjay began to get into fights and get involved in robberies leading him to serve multiple two and three-month sentences. In 2016, at the age of 15, he was sentenced to one year in a youth detention center. This longer time period influenced Lil Tjay to begin writing lyrics. In late 2017, Lil Tjay made a promise to his mother that he would no longer be involved in crime. Before recording in a studio, he made several songs on his phone and computer, using bars designed to work in hip hop style. He was inspired by Usher and Michael Jackson , which his mother would play as he was growing up. He made a song that is called “No Escape” which talks about his life.

The ” Pop Out ” rapper just dropped his F.N. EP earlier this month, featuring six tracks. It’s possible he was shooting a visual to one of the songs, but he has not yet spoken out on the matter.
Released via Columbia Records, Lil Tjay has shared his latest project, True 2 Myself. The album includes the rapper’s EP F.N. and remixes to two of the F.N. songs, Leaked” and Brother,” featuring Lil Durk and Lil Wayne , respectively. The album also hosts a handful of features on the 17-track offering from Jay Critch, Lil Baby , and Rileyy Lanez. To accompany the release of True 2 Myself, Lil Tjay shared a nine-minute documentary that acted as a behind-the-scenes look into the album-making process.
It’s hard to fathom how a kid with a non-existent social footprint engendered so much buzz, so quickly. He is now a regular staple on SoundCloud’s Top 50 chart, a growing bastion for major-label-backed artists. Tjay is coy regarding his pre-fame popularity, especially in his neighborhood — Nah, I was regular. I was regular. Some people knew me, some people didn’t.” He’s equally elusive about his deal with Columbia Records, even as he sits under their roof for our conversation. On Leaked,” he raps Lowkey ’cause the industry I’m not the old me,” which is a little humorous, considering his career is still in its fledgling stages.
The second-highest-ranking new release that begins its run on the Billboard 200 inside the highest tier comes from Lil Tjay, a rapper who only rose to prominence recently. The hip-hop musician’s debut album True 2 Myself opens at No. 5 with 45,000 equivalent units, 1,000 of which are actual sales. Just a few months ago, Lil Tjay landed his first-ever appearance on the chart when his mixtape F.N lifted to No. 38, narrowly entering the top 40 region.

It seems Lil Tjay may be one to keep an eye out for. He can be added to the list of young rappers set on doing big things; making music their way out of the gritty streets.

The 18-year-old New Yorker’s rise began, as with so many of his contemporaries, with a Soundcloud upload that resonated with his young audience, who greedily devoured tracks like Brothers,” Leaked,” and Resume,” accumulating well over 40 million plays and drawing the attention of Columbia Records, who scooped up the young rapper, adding him to a growing roster that includes proven hitmakers like Ambjaay, Joey Badass , Lil Nas X , Polo G, and Russ A quick review of those rappers’ hits reveals that Lil Tjay fits in — but it’s possible that he blends in a little too much.
Inspired by artists like Usher and Michael Jackson, the rapper has set himself apart with a ‘melodic rap’ sound used to colour incisive and autobiographical accounts of his experiences in the Bronx. Originally crafting his songs on his phone and computer, in 2018, he won first place in a Coast 2 Coast LIVE NYC competition which gained him the attention of a major label, and the rest is history. Fans can catch Lil Tjay on tour with fellow rapper Lil Mosey all throughout 2019: be on the lookout for his upcoming projects, which he provides updates on through his active Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Looking at the tracklist, it may feel like True 2 Myself isn’t all that new. After all, seven songs on the album have been released previously, including Hold On” , and two of the tracks are bonus remixes. It’s a logical move by Lil Tjay, though, who likely will score extra stream points by jamming his popular singles onto one album.
Tione Dalyan Merritt (born April 30, 2001), better known as Lil Tjay, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter from the Bronx, New York He is best known for his collaboration with Polo G , ” Pop Out “, peaking at 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as “Resume”, “Brothers”, and “Leaked” with the latter receiving 44.4 million plays on SoundCloud , which led to his signing with Columbia Records It has also been a staple on SoundCloud’s Top 50 chart.
On his own, Wale has now pushed four full-lengths into the top 10 on the all-genre tally, including a pair of chart-toppers. As a member of Maybach Music Group, which is a record label he’s signed to that also records and releases collaborative albums from time to time, he’s also snagged another three top 10s, bringing his career total to seven such wins.
A clip of Lil Tjay being arrested went viral online earlier this week, but we’ve since found out that it was just part of his new music video for “F.N.,” which was released on Thursday. The menacing visual has quickly amassed more than 1 million views in less than 24 hours since its premiere.
Of course, with the influx of similar-sounding, melodically-inclined rappers currently flooding the game, it’s important for him to do so in more than words. In just the last year, rap has seen a rise in hits from trap-inspired artists hailing from cities outside of the subgenre’s origin of Atlanta, including Roddy Ricch , TJ Porter , Lil Tecca , and Tjay’s Pop Out” collaborator Polo G , with whom Tjay scored his first major hit. Once Atlanta-born trap stars like Lil Baby and Gunna get added to the mix, it’s clear that this is a lane which is rapidly filling up; any new artists merging into it must also find ways to distinguish themselves. On True 2 Myself, Lil Tjay makes a promising start, but also shows just how far he has to go.

Lil Tjay has been building up steam for some time now and he dropped his debut album at the perfect time to capitalize on it. The 17-track True 2 Myself came out on Friday it boasted one of the most highly-coveted features in the game right now. No disrespect to Lil Wayne (who appears on the remix of Tjay’s hit “Leaked”), but this year, Lil Baby has been popping up on everyone’s records and knocking his verses out of the park every time he does.
Raised in an NYC neighborhood saturated with gang culture and deficient of positivity, Lil TJay eventually earned himself a year of incarceration. Upon release, he committed himself to finding legal routes toward his music dreams. The studio would be his saving grace and destiny. His first recording birthed the heartless yet catchy Resume.” Soon after, the flammable Brothers” would earn him his first Internet smash. The infectious hook and sophisticated harmony snatched ears and eyes to the tune of 27 million plus YouTube viewers. The follow-up, None of your Love” exhibited TJay’s artistic range as it swam into deeper R&B waters to express a Pitbull’s puppy love. It’s as if Jackson 5 MJ and Future turnt up in some alternate universe.
New York City rapper Lil Tjay has shared the title and tracklist of his upcoming album. The record, called True 2 Myself, features contributions from a handful of hip-hop stars, including Lil Wayne and Lil Baby. It drops this Friday, October 11th, via Columbia.
When Lil Tjay started showing up in my feeds a few months ago, I wasn’t trying to hear it. If I didn’t much care about A Boogie, then why would I care about this teenage kid who seemed to be some kind of underground answer to A Boogie, half-singing generic street-life drivel over Type Beats type beats? If anything, his success reminded me of the late-’00s heyday of Ron Brownz, the producer and singer who briefly hit gold while howling tuneless Auto-Tune hooks on Jim Jones and Busta Rhymes songs. And when was the last time you heard Arab Money”? Tjay didn’t seem like something I needed to worry about. But then a song snuck up on me. Songs will do that.

After a relatively tight race between hip-hop stars YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Post Malone, the former has come out on top, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the first time in his career.

Tione Merritt is 17, and his rise over the last year has been fueled by pure youth and unfiltered instinct. To him, Drake and Meek Mill are elder statesmen, the way those rappers looked at Jay-Z or Biggie when they were growing up. If you’re over 25, Lil Tjay probably thinks you’re old, too.
As far as he’s concerned, there isn’t an overarching plan for his first album. In fairness, why should there be? Tjay has made it this far dropping one-off singles and waiting for the millions of streams to roll in. He’s direct about his methods: If I don’t feel like it’s a hit then I don’t feel like dropping it.” Nevertheless, the young rapper has already witnessed what a bubbling rap career can do for the people around him.
