On Friday (Nov. 20), Megan Thee Stallion released her debut album, Good News.
With 17 tracks to hold us over, Thee Stallion wasted no time clearing the air with the opening track, “Shots Fired,” where she addressed the shooting incident that transpired on July 12th with Tory Lanez in Hollywood Hills, which resulted in her being wounded.
Serving as a response to Lanez who denied all accusations on his album DAYSTAR, Megan Thee Stallion decided to sample Biggie Smalls 1994-record, “Who Shot Ya” and come out the gate swinging: Imagine ni**as lyin’ about shootin’ a real bitch,” she raps. “Just to save face for rapper ni**as you chill with / Imagine me givin’ a f**k it was your fu**in’ birthday / You in your feelings, I just thought it was another Thursday/Now imagine me cockblocking ni**as, on some dry sh*t / I don’t want you on a bitch, believe you wouldn’t have been invited / And if it weren’t for me, same week, you would have been indicted.”
Megan also addresses Lanez snitching allegations:”Who a snitch? I ain’t never went to the police with no names/ Next ni**a send a shot, I’ma send it right back … Shoulda let them lock your ass up,” she raps.
Lanez dissed Megan Thee Stallion on the opening track of DAYSTAR, “Money Over Fallouts.”
“Girl, you had the nerve to write that statement on the affidavit / Knowin’ I ain’t do it but I’m comin’ at my truest / Tryna keep this shit 200 with you,” he spits. “Don’t forget you was my bitch / I held it down and kept it real / I would never paint no fake picture of you just for some mills.”
