Tory Lanez Drops 17-Song Album After Megan Thee Stallion Shooting
Written by DJ AquaTrunk on October 15, 2020
On Friday (Sept. 25), the Canadian rap-crooner put out the new album, Daystar. The project contains 17 songs with features from Yoko Gold. Tory addresses the Megan situation on the LP’s first song, “Money Over Fallouts.”
He claims Megan’s team is trying to frame him for the shooting. “Ho caught me D’d up, talk down, we T’ing up/Megan people tryna frame me for a shootin’, but them boys ain’t clean enough/I see how they teamin’ up, watchin’ and I’m calculatin’/Gotta keep it quiet, I can’t jeopardize the outcome waitin’/Seein’ certain niggas hatin’, like, how this nigga hatin’?/I done gave these people so much features, made these niggas famous/They was on the blog sayin’ I’m canceled from this entertainment/I was on that Spotify like 30 million monthly listeners, I’m fuckin’ goin’ crazy,” he raps.
Tory also questions how Megan got shot in her foot but no bullets hit bones or tendons. He even calls out Jay-Z. “Gotta see a couple questions: how the fuck you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?/How the fuck your team is tryna to pay me in some whole millions?/I just lost like $10 million because this cold business/But I got like 10 million followers that’s gon’ roll with me/Fans that support me ’cause they know my heart/So I don’t give a shit if shorty know Jigga/I was taught to beat the block/Eeny, meeny, miny in these streets, and so my Nina cocked,” Tory rhymes.
The Quarantine Radio founder teased the project right before its release, including a photo of the cover art on Instagram. “There is a time to stay silent . And a time to speak ….. I said all I could say on this,” he wrote as the caption.
As previously reported, Tory was arrested on July 12 in Los Angeles and charged with a felony for carrying a concealed firearm after police responded to a disturbance outside a home in the Hollywood Hills in California involving Tory, Megan and her friend, and then found a gun in the vehicle the three were in. When authorities arrived, witnesses claimed the group was involved in an argument inside an SUV. Then, someone fired gunshots and the vehicle left the scene. Tory, Megan and an unnamed woman assumed to be her friend Kelsey were present in the vehicle when it was stopped by police who discovered the firearm. Following initial reports that she’d been cut by glass, Megan was later identified as the victim of the shooting and had been shot in her foot, requiring surgery.
As more details emerged, reports that Tory Lanez was allegedly the person who shot Megan surfaced. According to a Page Six article about the incident, a source told the outlet, “Tory fired the shots from within the vehicle while Megan was outside trying to leave. There is video and the police are investigating. This is a case of a man physically harming and abusing a woman.”
Following backlash, Megan confirmed Tory shot her on the night in question. “Since y’all hoes so worried ’bout it,” Meg said on Instagram Live on Aug. 20. “Yes, this nigga Tory shot me. You shot me. And you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and shit. Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really fuckin’ dragging it. Muthafuckas talkin’ ’bout I hit this nigga. I never hit you. Muthafuckas was like, ‘Oh, she mad ’cause he was tryna fuck with Kylie.’ No, I wasn’t. You dry shot me.”
Police have reportedly opened an assault with a deadly weapon case surrounding the incident. Tory Lanez, born Daystar Peterson, bailed out of jail the same day he was arrested after paying a $35,000 bond, and had been completely mum on the situation until now, despite pleas for answers and criticism from his rap counterparts. Although there were rumors Tory had been deported, he remains in the U.S. His next court date is set for Oct. 13.
