Cousins! Bronx, New York Drill Rapper Lil TJay has recently turned himself in following a previous gun charge!
Following news of TJay turning himself in a series of reports on social media had indicated that he had been arrested for an outstanding warrant. However his attorney Dawn Florio declares that there were no new charges brought against him nor was there a new incident that followed.
“This arrest is not a new gun charge,” Dawn declared within a direct message screenshot posted by TJay’s verified Instagram account. “He had to turn himself in for the case where he was a victim where he was shot multiple times. The allegation is that there were guns in the car.”
The rumors had gained major traction as
TJay’s New Jersey mugshot circulated throughout social media.
Reports from Bet News show that the charges were in connection to a January 2023 incident where the 21 year old had been traveling in a Cadillac Escalade with four of his friends when he was pulled over by local officials within a traffic stop for the windows of the SUV being tinted and having a missing front license plate.
As the officer searched the vehicle they discovered four fire arms. TJay and the passengers with him were arrested. Him and two other people were charged with criminal possession of a weapon as he made his way to shoot a music video for the song ‘Gangsta Boo’ alongside Ice Spice.
