For unknown reasons, a Canadian rapper decided to messily make a mockery of a woman’s assault claims on his new project.
Last night Drake and 21 Savage released their joint album Her Loss and everyone joined around the social media campfire to listen. The album was immediately met with praise because of Drake’s return to rapping bars, but when fans took a deep dive into the lyrics, they noticed that he dissed several people and things.
There was one lyric in particular, however, that sparked a firestorm of backlash.
Megan Thee Stallion Responds To Drake Insinuating She Lied About Being Shot
In the song “Circo Loco” Drake rapped an interesting double entendre involving the 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion.
Megan has always maintained that Tory Lanez was the one that shot her in the foot but somehow without any proof to support otherwise, Drake and several others continue to paint her out to be a liar.
“This b*** lie ’bout getting shots but she still a stallion.”
Many listeners took the lyrics as Drake insinuating that Megan lied about getting shot while few chalked it up to wordplay about butt shots.
Within the hour Megan Thee Stallion caught wind of what was said and voiced her frustration. After initially expressing doubt that the bar was about her…
she did a heel turn.
“Stop using my shooting for clout b**** a** n*****!” she tweeted. “Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot! You n***** especially RAP n***** ARE LAME!”
Megan continued and seemingly took a shot at all the drama involving Kanye West and noted how quickly people suggested rallying around him to boycott Adidas.
“Ready to boycott bout shoes and clothes but dog pile on a black woman when she say one of y’all homeboys abused her. And when the mf facts come out remember all y’all h** a** favorite rappers that stood behind a n**** that SHOT A FEMALE.”
“People attack me y’all go up for it, I defend myself now I’m doing too much … every time it never ends and this did NOT happen until I came out and said I got shot … y’all don’t fwm okay cool f*** it bye.”
Megan The Stallion’s lawyer Alex Spiro has now chimed in to condemn Drake’s wordplay with an official statement.
“Despite the irrefutable evidence that Megan was a victim of gun violence, the ignorant continue to support her attacker,” Spiro said in a statement shared with Complex.
Drake is a loyal branch of the J Prince family tree that is currently in a legal battle with Megan in her contract dispute with 1501 Entertainment. The connection clearly isn’t lost on Megan but soon lyrics and opinions won’t matter as the Tory Lanez trial is set to begin in just a few weeks.
