Megan Thee Stallion didn’t hold back while criticizing Drake’s new song “Circo Loco,” which appears to imply she lied about Tory Lanez allegedly shooting her two years ago. “Stop using my shooting for clout,” the Houston rapper tweeted on Nov. 4. “Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot. . . . Ready to boycott bout shoes and clothes but dog pile on a black woman when she says one of y’all homeboys abused her,” she added, along with other comments concerning lyrics from the song on his new collaborative album with 21 Savage, “Her Loss.”
The Drake lyrics in question state: “This b*tch lie ’bout getting shots, but she still a stallion / She don’t even get the joke, but she still smiling.” Later in the song, Drake seems to reference her again, rapping, “Shorty say she graduated, she ain’t learn enough / Play your album, track one, ‘kay, I heard enough.” The latter line may be alluding to Megan’s graduation from Texas Southern University in 2021.
In an interview with Rolling Stone in June, Megan reported that she and Lanez had a growing friendship until a July 2020 confrontation during which Lanez reportedly shot her feet while yelling. The “Traumazine” artist detailed the traumatic experiences that followed the incident, including hospitalization for bullet shards in her feet. Lanez, who pleaded not guilty, is currently on house arrest as he awaits trial, which is scheduled to begin Nov. 28.
Megan continued to defend herself on Twitter, adding, “People attack me y’all go up for it , i defend myself now I’m doing too much … every time it never ends and this did NOT happen until I came out and said I got shot.” Despite the backlash she’s received for coming forward with her story, she continues to highlight the importance of supporting and believing victims, especially Black women who are speaking up about their trauma.
Whether or not Drake’s lyrics are about Megan and Lanez’s confrontation is unconfirmed. A representative for Drake did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request to comment.
