The shooting which left Tjay in the hospital occurred back in June, but in the time since the 21-year-old has made a miraculous recovery. Last week, he shared a video of himself walking that was filmed shortly after surgery.
“The blogs said I was paralyzed and couldn’t walk,” Lil Tjay wrote in the video, which features his song, “Beat The Odds.” “But I started walking a week after surgery. I beat the odds.”
As for 50 Cent, he famously survived being shot nine times early in his career and used it as inspiration to get more serious about making music.
“Now it’s clear that I’m here, for a real reason,” 50 raps on “Many Men.” “‘Cause he got hit like I got hit, but he ain’t fucking breathing.”
