Just last week, Lil Tjay underwent emergency surgery at a New Jersey hospital after being shot numerous times in the neck and chest area. According to reports, a man by the name of Mohamed Konate allegedly tried to rob Tjay which then led to a shootout. Konate was eventually arrested for the alleged shooting and he is still in custody.
Meanwhile, Tjay's surgery was successful, however, for a few days, Tjay was unconscious and unresponsive. This led to various rumors about his condition on social media, although an official update hadn't been provided. Today, that all changed as it was revealed by TMZ that Tjay is now awake, and he can even talk.

Now that he is awake, police are already trying to communicate with Tjay as they are looking for details about the shooting.

For now, Tjay will have to remain in the hospital until doctors tell him otherwise. So far, there is no timeline for his ongoing recovery.
