Tory Lanez took to Instagram on Tuesday (January 5) to reveal a collaboration he has on the way to set the stage for 2021 featuring DaBaby. Many of Lanez’s fans were excited to hear about new music, but once the news made it to Megan The Stallion’s Hotties, they weren’t too thrilled to learn that Baby was on a track with Lanez.

Meg had worked with DaBaby on numerous occasions including “NASTY” alongside Ashanti, Good News standout “Cry Baby” and “Cash Shit,” which cracked the Billboard Hot 100’s top 40 in 2019. The pair of collaborators have manufactured a strong friendship outside of music and sat next to one another at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
Baby has remained quiet about the alleged July 12 shooting, which reportedly left the Houston Hottie with bullet shells in her feet after Lanez shot a round from a firearm. The Canadian singer denied all of the allegations and he pleaded not guilty to felony assault with a semi-automatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
Hours later Tuesday (January 5), Meg called out Tory for the framing of his collab with DaBaby by explaining that the upcoming track was actually “old and not cleared.” The 24-year-old also retweeted a tweet from a fan saying, “That ain’t Dababy that’s my baby.”
“Nice try,” she wrote on Twitter. “That shit was old and not cleared. CRYBABY VIDEO dropping soon.”
In December, Bun B revisited the Meg-Tory shooting and detailed why he made the choice to speak out and side with his fellow Houston native in the matter.
“I mean, people are usually waiting for that first person to say something, and then more and more people will step to the table,” he said. “I feel like if I hadn’t said anything, I’m not sure how much people would have even spoken on this issue. And if my relationship with Tory Lanez is damaged, then so be it. We have to protect our Black women and any Black man that doesn’t feel the same way is not my brother.”
