Lil Tjay On A Boogie Comparisons & Bieber Not Clearing “Baby” Sample–For The Record

Following a whirlwind year that included a slew of highly-streamed singles and a feature on Polo G’s Hot 100 hit, “Pop Out,” rapper Lil Tjay dropped his debut studio album, ‘True 2 Myself.’ On the album, Tjay raps about growing up in the Bronx, losing friends to the streets, and navigating his come up—all perfectly auto-tuned and layered over 808s. Tjay joined Genius’ Head of Artist Relations Rob Markman for a For The Record conversation on the project and discussed why his song “None Of Your Love” didn’nt make it on the album and how he feels about the constant comparisons to fellow Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit da Hoodie.
