Megan Thee Stallion delivered her Roc Nation debut Good News at midnight EST on Friday (November 20) and, like many of her fans suspected, wasted no time ripping Tory Lanez to shreds on the album opener “Shots Fired.”
Over the 1994 Biggie beat “Who Shot Ya,” the statuesque rapper immediately ridicules the Canadian rapper’s diminutive height with, “Imagine niggas lyin’ ’bout shootin’ a real bitch (Huh?)/Just to save face for rapper niggas you chill with/Imagine me givin’ a fuck it was your fuckin’ birthday (Fuck you)/You in your feelings, I just thought it was another Thursday.”
Of course, Megan is referring to the now infamous July 12 shooting in which she was hit in both feet, allegedly by Lanez. During a recent interview with GQ, she claimed Lanez offered her money to stay quiet about the incident, something she addresses in the first verse while calling him a “bitch.”
“You offered M’s not to talk, I guess that made my friend excited, hmm/Now y’all in cahoots, huh (Okay), you a puss in boots/You shot a 5’10” bitch with a .22/Talkin’ ’bout bones and tendons like them bullets wasn’t pellets/A pussy nigga with a pussy gun in his feelings/OK, he in the backseat and he keep callin’ me a bitch (He a bitch).”
But apparently, the 1501 Entertainment artist was just getting warmed up. In verse two, she compared him to a sorry piece of seafood, spitting, “I’m a steak, you a side plate, shrimp, stay in your place/Real bitch, yeah, yeah, I ain’t sellin’ fairytales.”
Megan took aim at her ex-best friend Kelsey Nicole who was with her at the time of the shooting.
“Who a snitch? I ain’t never went to the police with no names,” she raps. “I thought a bitch that got her chain snatched, caught a loss had something to say, ayy/I be speakin’ facts, uh, they can’t handle that, uh/They want me to be the bad guy, let me put my mask on.”
Shortly after “Shots Fired” hit streaming services, “Tory” became a trending Twitter topic. Check out some of the best reactions below.
