"Today's a new day, man. I'm chilling, man. I ain't tryna argue with nobody," he said. "I ain't gon lie... I'm going back to the old Lil Tjay. Not arguing. This is why I never like posting a lot because I can't control myself, start getting out of hand and shit. My fault for getting out of composure."
Tjay continued, "Fuck this beef shit, I don't encourage it."

Lil Tjay has expressed his issues with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie in the past, but he's kicked it up a notch over the past week or so. Upon teasing his State of Emergency mixtape, Tjay declared himself the king of New York. In the process, he took aim at both A Boogie and controversial rapper 6ix9ine.
"ALL THAT OTHER NA NA NA SHIT ND SNITCH RAINBOW HAIR SHIT GOING ON IN MY CITY A DUBB," he wrote alongside the teaser.
A Boogie's HighBridge label mate Don Q immediately took issue with the post. "Word to my mother, I'm not saving n***as no more," Q said in a video addressing Tjay. "Next time n***as see n***as, n***as getting stripped out of everything, respectfully. I'm telling you now."
Clearly unfazed by the video, Tjay responded and didn't hold anything back. "Yo, you can suck my fucking dick, how 'bout that, n***a?" he said. "Yo, Don Q, suck my dick, n***a. Slap the shit out of you, n***a. You stupid, n***a? You fucking dumb? Y'all n***as is real pussy."
The back and forth continued, with Q asking Tjay to "come outside" if he really means what he says. Tjay simply posted a picture of Q's Instagram page, in which he joked that he only had 500,000 followers and might need some more if he doesn't want to get dropped by HighBridge.
It didn't end there, as Tjay made claims about the mother of A Boogie's child. Tjay said he almost messed around with her, while his friend backed up his claims. She quickly shot down his accusation, saying she "wouldn't even TALK to that little boy."
A Boogie and Lil Tjay first started taking shots at each other when they were compared, leading A Boogie to subliminally accuse him of stealing his sound. "N***as be mad when it the next n***a time to shine," Tjay said at the time.
"Fr tho this shit is getting outta hand I'm not tryna knock nobody hustle I'm just getting sick of the craft ya bringing to the table," Boogie responded.
His drama with HighBridge comes just after Tjay reportedly flew rapper Rubi Rose to celebrate his 19th birthday. She allegedly called the police on him after he "broke her heart" and didn't pay for her flight home. She expressed her frustration at the situation on Twitter, but he later clarified that he did buy her a flight home at some point.
Lil Tjay's feud comes as the South Bronx rapper plans to release his new project, State of Emergency, on May 8.
