During an attempted robbery Lil Tjay was shot seven times last year, and after his sensational recovery he received some good advice from 50 Cent.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Lil Tjay recalled that, after physically getting better, he received a phone call from Fifty, who was calling from his private jet at the time.
“Every artist needs pain or something to feed off of. This right here, you shake this s–t off. You got the length for greatness. You going to be bigger than ever.” This would make Tjay feel much better as 50 Cent is no stranger to overcoming injuries from getting shot. The former Shady Records artist was shot nine times back in 2000.
After leaving the hospital, Tjay dropped a remix of 50 Cent’s classic song “Many Men” from his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ which is produced by Eminem. The song is “FACESHOT” and Tjay he channels the G-Unit general’s bulletproof defiance by addressing the culprit who almost killed him, by referencing Eminem and his 2010 Billboard No. 1 hit song “Not Afraid,” from Recovery album.
“I know many men out there wanna get me, tell ’em bend again/ Never on no scary s–t, Not Afraid like Eminem/ Singin’ ni–a, but you sleep on me that be your flaw/ Lettin’ me live that was stupid, must think one plus two is four,” he rapped.
