Amidst swirling rumors surrounding her reported demise, Lil Tay has made a triumphant comeback, releasing a new music video that's set social media ablaze. It was only a month ago that the controversial rapper's family took to Instagram, sharing a post that mourned her alleged passing.
This post, however, mysteriously disappeared a day later. In the freshly released video for "Sucker 4 Green," 14-year-old Claire Hope, better known by her moniker, Lil Tay, is seen flaunting a bold yellow ensemble, reminiscent of her viral TikTok stints showcasing her luxe car purchases at a tender age.
Various scenes display the young rapper crooning around a sprawling mansion in vibrant outfits, while other moments capture her groove alongside dapper-suited backup dancers, their choreography echoing iconic money-themed gestures.
Amid the high-octane visual delight, fans also caught a glimpse of Tay's mother, Angela Tian, and her older sibling, Jason Tian, sharing screen space inside a swanky vehicle.
Lil Tay's Explosive Comeback
Addressing the buzz, Lil Tay's team distributed a press release exclaiming, "Lil Tay is back, not only on social media but with a blazing new single and music video”.
Furthermore, during a candid Instagram LIVE session, the rapper reached out to her massive fanbase, proclaiming, “I’m back. I'm exposing everyone. I’ve been crafting and perfecting this for years”. She passionately added, “This song and video are mere windows into the universe I’ve crafted.
The essence of me resonates in the song's title. Either resonate with it or make an exit”. During her hiatus from the digital realm, Tay revealed that she harnessed her time, honing skills in writing, singing, mastering multiple instruments, and dancing.
On Instagram, Tay teased her audience with snippets of her latest creation, adding fuel to the fire with captions like "Y'ALL THOUGHT THE SHOW WAS OVER. SUCKER 4 GREEN OUT NOW!
A quick scroll through her TikTok profile suggests a clean slate, with only her recent music video excerpts visible.
The enigmatic rapper skyrocketed to fame in 2018, characterized by her brash Instagram videos, blending rap with a touch of audacious luxury. However, her digital presence waned shortly after her rise, leading to her virtual disappearance.
Come August, a shocking post surfaced on her account, sharing the "unexpected" passing of Lil Tay and her brother, Jason Tian. While the cause remains enigmatic, neither her parents nor official sources like the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the news. The cloud of mystery around Lil Tay thickens, but one thing's clear: her comeback is unmissable.
