In the opening shot, Tjay can be seen laying down an energetic reference track, an insight into his creative process. “I was locked up five years ago exactly,” he reflects. “I was blessed that I caught all my charges and got that phase out of me. It’s definitely a reminder that I don’t want to go back there.”
The voiceover continues as Tjay outlines his surroundings growing up in the Bronx, stating that he often found himself surrounded by people lacking ambition. As the documentary continues, Tjay opens up about several learning experiences he’s faced, teasing that many such reflections will be included on his upcoming project. “I named the album Destined 2 Win cause I always felt I had something in me that was going to be great,” he explains. “It’s a body of work to highlight my accomplishments.”
In an interesting moment, the documentary explores Tjay and his team meticulously arranging the album’s tracklist, revealing the rapper’s desire for a cohesive experience. It’s evident that the rapper is determined to make a lasting impact with this one, and though the jury is still out on the final project, the singles we’ve heard so far have certainly been promising.
