Who Is Lil Ty and How Did He Snag a Jadakiss Feature?
A video called "Ridin Round" emerged a few days ago and it is causing the hip-hop world to collectively ask "Who is Lil Ty and how the fuck did he land a Jadakiss feature?" Not only that, but Jada's in the video. Like, actually with this dude in the same shot. Not edited in from another location. DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, French Montana, and Meek Mill couldn't muster up enough clout to get Jay Z to appear in the "They Don't Love You No More" video, but this all-powerful pipsqueak managed to get the LOX vet to show up on shoot day. Jada, you okay, dog? Should we be worried?
Here's what we know about Lil Ty: he is, in fact, lil, he's from Philly, he's on Twitter, he's unsigned (look out XXL 2015 Freshman Class!), "if he wasn't up in this booth" he'd "be out committing some crimes," and he is just SO HAPPY to have Jadakiss in his video, as you can see in the screengrab up top.
What we don't know, and may never know, is how the fuck did he land a Jadakiss feature.
