Now I’m sure all of you on here have heard of The Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, and if you haven’t yet, then you’re slacking and need to get on that. ASAP. Boogie is famous for the way he’s able to flow on his beats and rap about some of the real life pain he goes through. He has a unique high pitch to his voice that separates him from other artists. You may know him from songs such as “Still think about you” and “Jungle” or also maybe some of his work from his last album “Hoodie SZN 2” with songs like “Swervin” ft currently incarcerated artist Tekashi69.
Well now Hip-Hop has a new face for this style of music. His name is Lil Tjay. Tione Merritt, or better known by his stage name, Lil Tjay, is also from The Bronx, NYC. He has a similar sound to A Boogies, with the same high pitched voice and flow that he has singing/rapping along to his melody bar for bar. One thing in particular that also sticks out with Lil Tjay is that he’s only 18. He’s already starting to make some big waves in the rap game.
Lil Tjays legacy is due to blow up any minute now. His verses are filled with great uses of metaphors and analogies, and he’s a very talented lyricist. A few of his most popular songs are “Brothers”, “Leaked”, and “Long time”. All good songs worth giving a listen too, i’ll post a link below to a free playlist with some of his best work.
Lil Tjay is also starting to catch some real good features that have been helping expand his name to multiple fan bases. He’s done work on YNW Melly’s “Ready For War” and also had a killer feature on Polo G’s ” Pop Out”. His features have been very consistently good. Not one yet has made me sit there and want to skip through. His next big single “Ruthless” will also feature Jay Critch.
I encourage everyone to give the playlist below a listen. Lil Tjay has potential that is sky high. Who knows, he may just even catch A Boogie Wit da Hoodie if not pass him up… Just remember you heard it here first.
