Rapper Lil Tjay was busted in The Bronx on Monday after cops found loaded firearms inside the Cadillac Escalade he was riding in, according to police.
The 21-year-old musician, whose real name is Tione Jayden Merritt, was in the SUV with four friends when cops pulled them over for unknown reasons.
Four guns were confiscated by police during the traffic stop at 183rd Street and Ryer Avenue close to 4 p.m., the NYPD said.
The Bronx-born rapper and the four others were taken into custody, cops said. No charges connected to the incident were announced hours later.
The “Brothers” artist, who is signed to Columbia Records, appears to have been in the borough to shoot a music video, according to social media posts.
“Video shooot today lol it’s litt,” reads a post on his Instagram story.
The bust comes seven months after Lil Tjay was shot several times during an attempted robbery at an Edgewater, New Jersey, shopping plaza.
