Toronto rap star Tory Lanez is working like there’s no tomorrow. The hip-hop crooner has pulled through the Big Apple to deliver an unforgettable Hot 97 radio freestyle for Funk Flex which features a massive shot toward his former flame Megan Thee Stallion.
Lanez completely let loose some bars in the truest essence of freestyle. His bars range from modern day lines to references to music icons like 2Pac and legendary 90’s movie Poetic Justice.
“Bustin’ 2Pac’s out the van like Poetic Justice, last year was last year, on Twitter, ‘Oh he canceled, now I’m back here/Double stash the Rolls-Royce, smothered in cashmere, a mean rookie, I’m seeing p*ssy like it’s a Pap smear, my last chick, that new n*gga d*mn near a dweeb, couldn’t see like a magician with tricks in his sleeve.”
The craziest and most hard-hitting bars feature a direct connection to his publicized July 2020 shooting case involving former flame Megan Thee Stallion. Lanez apologizes to rap stars like DaBaby and Roddy Ricch for them losing out on Grammys and BET Awards to Stallion as a result of him being painted the anti-hero and fuel for protecting Black women.
“Shouts go out to ‘SKAT,’ shout-out goes out to DaBaby, Roddy Ricch and Lil Baby, what I’m about to say is going to sound a little crazy, but it’s true so don’t flame me. Y’all all would have got y’all awards if they never framed me.”
A few days ago, Tory appeared on rap star Soulja Boy‘s “Ricky n Morty” remix and also made a reference to last summer’s attack. While he didn’t name-drop Meg, Lanez referenced the only time he would ‘shoot’ a woman.
Uh, you know my name, ho
Only thing I’m shootin’ at a b*tch is game, ho
Yeah, yeah, it’s Tory Lanez, ho
Clean white tee, still’ll hit a stain, though
I just got in with the stick, mhm
In mid-June 2021, tensions flared between Megan Thee Stallion and her frequent collaborator DaBaby. She took personal offense to him appearing on Lanez’s “SKAT” record and took her issues to social media.
“support me in private and publicly do something different…these industry men are very strange. This situation ain’t no d*mn “beef” and I really wish people would stop down playing it like it’s some internet sh*t for likes and retweets. … justice is slow … as we’ve all seen…back to my good day 💙”
DaBaby attempted to clear his name from any type of drama and stepped up to speak out. Baby also tried to end rumors and speculation about ‘liking’ or even retweeting someone’s remarks about both himself and Lanez getting away with shooting someone and not having to do jail time.
“Baby got enough problems of his own my nigga😂, ion got nooooo reason to inherit the next MF problems.🙅🏾♂️ Y’all chasing a story y’all ain’t gone get. I’m out niggas bidness while still successfully doing business. … Idk what type of Illuminati sh*t Twitter got goin on😂… I ain’t retweet nothing but “Ball If I Want To” promo. I ain’t retweet that silly shit. Then once ppl start tagging me & I saw it and tried to delete it and undo the retweet Twitter didn’t let me.🤔 Type sh*t yall on?”
Instead of speaking their minds and leaving it alone, the duo actually took things a step further with some hard-hitting clashing. Baby quoted Meg and specifically mentioned not wanting to have anything to do between Tory and Stallion.
“You done let these folks get the best of you thug. ion got no bad energy for ya. You know like I know I ain’t no “industry” n*gga , let em fool you into thinking that you trippin. Stand on what you stand on without feeling like I’m against ya. Stay focused my g🖤💪🏾”
Meg refused to let Baby get the last word and questioned his true loyalty and stance in her situation with Lanez.
“My stance hasn’t changed at all YOURS has. We already spoke abt this in private and you specifically said “that ain’t even no good business move why would I promote that sh*t” but now this ain’t your “beef” ? That ain’t real. But you stay on ya “business” my g”
Baby followed this up by suggesting he had a similar conversation with Tory Lanez about how he wanted nothing to do with their legal situation.
“You ain’t tweeting nothing I ain’t tell dat n*gga directly. I told him da same sh*t. lol Whoever cleared it cleared it, so what. Sh*t still ain’t enough of my bidness for MFs to be feelin some type of way bout my pretty chocolate ass Gettin into dat don’t feed my ppl.”
