As the holiday season progresses and Christmas Day inches closer, it’s important to take note of those able to join you, and also those who may not be able to. Lil Tjay is conscious of this sentiment, which lead to him releasing his first Christmas song today (Dec. 1) titled “Christmas In A Cell.” On the track, Tjay gets reflective:

Remember bein’ in that cell, I was prayin’ someone save me, Lord wish me well/ Everybody against it, kinda or so that seem nowadays, so I ain’t beefin’ over nothin’ less it’s power plays/ I’m on a mission, tryna focus, ‘least amount the day

Gotta earn, shit, been workin’ out, I burned some calorie I could be sittin’ in that cell for when they caught me/ Plus somebody got that lawsuit, I know they salty, I’m well aware the money saved me/ Boys tryna pen a n***a fugazi/ Whatever condition, no, I ain’t never coincide

It’s been a few months since Lil Tjay liberated his sophomore LP Destined 2 Win, which contained 21 tracks with additional assists from 6LACK, Polo GFivio Foreign, Tyga, Saweetie, Toosii, Offset, and Moneybagg Yo. The project further solidified the Bronx star’s position as one of the most important artists in hip hop right now, landing him within the top five of the Billboard 200 thanks to 62,000 first-week album equivalent units sold. His previous effort, 2019’s True 2 Myself, sold 45,000 units its first week, subsequently landing Tjay a well-deserved Platinum plaque.

More recently, Tjay has contributed to collab tracks like “Bag Season” by French Montana and “Not In The Mood” with Fivio Foreign and Kay Flock. He also dropped off the official visual for “Forever In My Heart.”
