Harry J hopped on IG Live to inform fans Lil Jay’s court date has been pushed back to September
Lil Jay made a court appearance on Friday, Aug. 4. Clout Lord is fighting a reckless discharge of firearm charge in a shooting that left an associate dead.
Last month, Lil Jay updated fans on the hearing during a recent video chat with manager Rockstar Harry J.
Clout Lord told Harry J and fans that his friend FBG Butta, born Rakeem Wilton, is set to testify against him in their murder trial. Butta is being held on $250,000 bond in Cook County.
Butta appeared In Jay’s “Take You Out Your Glory” music video.
“N****s ain’t right through this b***h,” Lil Jay said. “N****s out here is really telling. Like the little n***a Butta, man. The n***a gon testify against me at trial. N***a’s a b***h. N****’s ain’t 100 no more. N****s ain’t 100 like they used to be. N****s y’all think y’all friends, they ain’t y’all friends. They lowkey jealous, and they envy y’all.”
Lil Jay and Butta were both charged with murder for the shooting death of 25-year-old Filmon N. Rezene.
Rezene appeared in Jay’s “Faneto (GMix)” music video.
Lil Jay and Butta were arrested alongside Roshinda Young, Monique Lane-Calhoun and Brittany Dupree.
Rezene was shot in self-defense following an argument with a then-22-year-old man in Calumet City. Lil Jay, Rezene and the group allegedly went to purchase marijuana from the 22-year-old man, but an argument ultimately erupted. The group left and returned with a firearm provided by Rezene’s girlfriend Young.
The 22-year-old was shot four times but was also armed and fired back at Rezene, who was struck “several” times, prosecutors told the Sun-Times.
Lil Jay, Young, Lane-Calhoun and Butta were arrested at the scene after police spoke with the 22-year-old victim and witnesses. Police later arrested Dupree after spotting her leaving Lil Jay’s apartment with a bag of handguns, including two used in the shooting.
Rezene died May 15 from his injuries in Stroger Hospital.
