Megan Thee Stallion Slams Drake Lyrics About Her Shooting



  • Drake and 21 Savage’s new song “Circo Loco” from their joint album “Her Loss” dropped on Friday.
  • The song appears to accuse Megan the Stallion of lying about being shot in the foot by Tory Lanez.
  • “Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot”, Megan wrote in response.

Megan Thee Stallion has responded to a lyric on Drake and 21 Savage’s new joint album “Her Loss” that appears to accuse her of lying about being shot in the foot by Tory Lanez.

In the opening lines of the first verse of the track “Circo Loco,” Drake raps: “This bitch lie ’bout getting shots, but she still a stallion / She don’t even get the joke but she still smiling.”

Many listeners — including Megan herself — have interpreted the lyric as a reference to the “Savage” rapper allegedly being shot in the foot by Tory Lanez in July 2020.

Just over an hour after the album was released on Friday, Megan posted a string of tweets defending herself against accusations that she fabricated the incident. She also appeared to take aim at Drake and 21 Savage, demanding that they “stop using my shooting for clout.” 

 

“I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak ass conspiracy theories in bars to my name,” she began, before adding in a second post: “Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot.”

Referencing the fact that many artists and fans are boycotting brands that have not yet cut ties with Kanye West following his antisemitic remarks, Megan continued: “Ready to boycott bout shoes and clothes but dog pile on a black woman when she say one of y’all homeboys abused her.”

Megan then added that she would be vindicated “when the mf facts come out,” and asked fans to “remember y’all hoe ass favorite rappers that stood behind” someone who “SHOT A FEMALE.”

 

Megan’s last tweet on the matter read: “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 fu–k it bye.”

In August 2020, Megan — who was hospitalized and underwent surgery following the shooting — accused Lanez, 30, of shooting her in the foot outside of a party at Kylie Jenner’s house in Los Angeles on July 12 of the same year.

In January 2022, Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, pleaded not guilty via his attorney to the assault and weapons charges related to the incident. Per Rolling Stone, his court case goes to trial on November 28.

If he’s convicted, Lanez is looking at up to 22 years in prison, according to Variety.

Meanwhile, Megan has had to continuously defend herself against “skepticism and judgment” about the shooting.

In an op-ed for The New York Times in October 2020, she wrote: “The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted.”

Representatives for Drake and 21 Savage did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
