Lil Tjay has shared his first new material since surviving a near-fatal shooting earlier this year. “Beat The Odds” discusses filming, which took place in June in Edgewater, New Jersey, while the self-directed video features footage of him recording the track from his hospital bed. Check it above.
Tjay was one of two victims shot dead in a mall during the June incident. He was taken to hospital and successfully underwent emergency surgery to treat injuries to his lungs, neck and chest.
Earlier this week, he shared an update with fans, saying, “I just want to say thank you for the love, thank you for the support. Seven shots was hard… Most people don’t won’t survive it, but I’m here, here for a reason. New music coming soon, we’re gonna come back stronger than ever.
A 27-year-old man named Mohammed Konaté has been arrested in connection with the shooting. He was later charged with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of armed robbery, aggravated assault and weapons offences.
