Lil Tay took to Instagram to call out her father Chris Hope and release new music.

A month after the rapper and influencer’s family announced her death in a post on Instagram, Lil Tay shared a music video for her new song “Sucker 4 Green.”

In the music video, the 16-year-old rapper, whose real name is Claire Hope, is seen dancing around luxury cars and more.

In other scenes, she could be seen singing around a mansion in an orange crop top and short shorts. During the chorus, she danced in front of other suited dancers, making the money sliding gesture.

Her mother Angela Tian and her older brother, Jason Tian, also made an appearance in the video alongside her in one of the luxury cars.

A press release from Lil Tay’s representatives said, “Lil Tay is back, not only to social media but with a big single and music video.”

Along with the music video, her representatives also released a statement detailing the rapper’s video on Instagram LIVE in which she told her fans, “I’m back. I’m exposing everyone. I’ve been waiting for this moment for years, studying my own craft and perfecting it along the way….”

“This video and song are only glimpses into the world I’ve been building. What and who I am are in the title of the song. Get with it or GTFO,” she added, noting that she’s taken the time away from social media to learn how to “write, sing, play multiple instruments, and dance.”

Lil Tay also appeared to have scrubbed all her previous TikTok videos, with only two videos showing scenes from her new music video that is available to view on the platform.

Tay first rose to fame in 2018 at the age of 9 thanks to her lavish videos online yelling expletives and even rapping.

Not long after she rose to fame, the young star vanished from the internet and deleted her Instagram account. The young star also went silent on the millions of fans she amassed on the app.

Then in August, an Instagram post was shared to Lil Tay’s account, announcing “the devastating news of our beloved Claire’s sudden and tragic passing. We have no words to express the unbearable loss and indescribable pain. This outcome was entirely unexpected, and has left us all in shock,” the post continued.


The post said that her brother, Jason Tian, also died. The cause of death is “still under investigation,” according to the statement.

Lil Tay’s mother and father both did not have any comment at the time. The Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner also said they had no record of the alleged death.
