Lil Tay is alive – level 1

15-08-2023 07:00

Lil Tay is a young rapper. She is born in America, but she is Canadian. She becomes popular when she is only nine years old. She is 14 years old now.

Her Instagram says that Lil is dead.  But that is not true.  Hackers attack her account. She feels very sad about it. She tells everyone that her real name is Tay Tian. Before, Lil shows money and very expensive things online. Then, she does not talk for some time. Her account is quiet.

Later, she says that she has problems with her family and manager.

Difficult words: dead (when someone does not live anymore), hacker (a person who steals information from people’s computers), quiet (without any activity).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
