Following a fake press cycle that included fake “appearances”. The Howard Stern Show and NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series, as well as a staggering number of hentai porn pics posted to Drake’s Instagram Stories, rappers Drake and 21 Savage launched their new album your loss in the early hours of Friday morning.
And one song in particular – or rather one line – causes a stir.
On the track “Circo Loco,” Drake raps, “This bitch is lying about getting shot but she’s still a stud / She doesn’t even get the joke but she’s still smiling.”
In the line, Drake accused rapper Megan Thee Stallion of lying about being shot by rapper Tory Lanez, prompting Megan to take to Twitter and reply, “And when the mf facts come out, remember everyone all your f***ing favorite rappers who stood behind a n*** who shot a woman.”
In a follow-up tweet, she added“People are attacking me y’all going into it I’m defending myself now I’m doing too much…every time it never stops and that didn’t happen until I came out and said I was shot…y’all not fwm okay cool.” fuck it bye.”
Megan came forward on August 20, 2020 to claim Tory shot her in the foot after a pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house on July 12 this year. (She initially told police she stepped on glass out of “fear.”) Tory launched a smear campaign against Megan (who allegedly fabricated emails from her label) and ended up facing two charges related to the incident in question: one Count of assault with a semi-automatic handgun and one count of carrying a loaded unregistered weapon in a vehicle. He faces a maximum of 22 years and 8 months imprisonment. After Tory delayed the trial multiple times, it will begin on November 28. He pleads not guilty.
Tory’s antics — and the lack of support Megan received from other male members of the hip-hop community — prompted her to write one New York Times Guest post in October 2020 that addressed the episode and the public reaction that followed.
“The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I had a role in my own violent attack proves that unfortunately my fears about speaking out about what happened were justified.””
“I was recently the victim of an act of violence by a man. After a party, I was shot twice while walking away from him. We weren’t in a relationship. Honestly, I was shocked that I ended up in this place,” she wrote.
“My initial silence about what happened was out of fear for me and my friends. Even as a victim, I have faced skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I had a role in my own violent attack proves that unfortunately my fears about speaking out about what happened were justified.”
Despite Tory’s claims, all known evidence seems to support Megan’s account. On December 14, 2021, LAPD Detective Ryan Stogner – who arrived at the scene – testified in court that Tory yelled “dance, bitch, dance!” at Megan as he fired shots at her feet. Megan, Det. Stogner testified, “Immediately felt pain in her feet, saw blood, fell to the ground, and then crawled to an adjacent apartment building driveway,” TMZ reported.
Det. Stogner further testified that Megan told him Tory asked her not to tell the truth about the shooting and even offered her money for her silence because he was on probation. Additionally, he testified Megan told him she initially said it was glass that caused her injuries because she feared the situation could escalate to violence given the political climate — it was the summer of 2020 — if she would direct the police towards Tory. A black man with a gun in his car.
As if that wasn’t enough, a phone call Tory made to a friend of Megan’s while he was behind bars was reportedly played in court, apologizing for a bad thing he’d done because he was too drunk.
Tory and his supporters have not provided any hard evidence disproving Megan’s side of the story, despite breaking a protective order that says he must stay at least 100 meters from Megan.
It’s beyond disappointing to see Drake displaying misogyny. He should know better and Megan deserves a sincere apology.
