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.”
