Did cops harass Lil TJay? Rapper goes Live on Instagram to share incident, Internet says 'he almost got arrested'
The ‘Brothers’ hitmaker, who has close to five million followers on his Instagram account, shared a five-minute video where we can see cops searching him
Bronx rapper Lil Tjay was apparently filming his new music video with his circle when NYPD cops crashed the site and searched him, reportedly without a warrant. The 19-year-old rapper took to his official Instagram account and went Live to share the recent incident.
The ‘Brothers’ hitmaker, who has close to five million followers on his Instagram account, shared almost a five-minute video where we can see cops searching him and also checking his car as the curious crowd gathered around to know what happened. Lil Tjay captioned the video as, “Smh” which for the unversed stands for “Shaking My Head.” The cops did not explain why they searched the rapper and his car despite being aware of being filmed. The reason for Lil Tjay getting harassed is still unknown. MEAWW will keep you posted with the details.
A lot of social media users then took to Twitter to speak on the matter. An individual posted, “Lil Tjay was ready to die just to stay on live.” Another expressed, “@liltjay almost gets arrested buts escapes!!!!! #liltjay #nypd,” One user said, “I hope they arrest lil tjay so he can finally stop making music.” Another added, “Lil tjay was getting harassed and the cops were checking his car.” One shared, “@NYPDnews stop wasting @liltjay time he could be working on that song.” Speaking on the same one tweeted, “boy it don’t matter what they do these days they just make up their own rules i guess.” Another gave a hilarious twist to the incident and said, “I hope they found his new album.”

Lil Tjay, who was one of the biggest breakout rappers of 2019, spent his early teenage years getting into fights and pulling off petty robberies, which landed him in a youth detention center in 2016 at the age of 15, as reported by Complex. The singer-songwriter returned home in late 2017 and started dropping his music on SoundCloud. His songs such as ‘F.N', ‘Resume', ‘Brothers', ‘Leaked' and ‘None of Your Love’ gained momentum while gradually racking up millions of plays.
