Tory Lanez addresses Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting claims on his new album DAYSTAR.
Lanez, whom Megan claims shot her on July 12, released the album to argue his innocence.
He raps on “Money Over Fallouts”, “How the f**k you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?” Pitchfork reports.
The rapper also includes snippets from news pieces about the alleged shooting and declares his innocence on “The Most High”.

Lanez alludes to his private conversations with Megan on “Friends Become Strangers”, rapping: “We both know what happened that night and what I did.”
On “Sorry But I Had To” Lanez mentions Megan by name, rapping: “You could’ve asked, ‘N***a what happened, did you do it?’”
He also asks, “If you got shot from behind how can you identify me?”
The album comes after Megan said during an Instagram Live stream in August: “Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs, lying and s**t. Stop lying.”
According to Megan, she and Lanez — along with one of her friends and one of Lanez’ security personnel, were in a car, driving to her house. She alleged that an argument broke out, and she left the car in anger.
Megan claimed Lanez shot her from the back seat of the car.
Lanez was arrested in July following the incident, charged with carrying a concealed weapon and released on bail, the Guardian reported.
The L.A. County district attorney’s office then said it was reviewing the case over a possible assault charge in August, and asked L.A. police to investigate further.
Rapper Rick Ross was not impressed with Lanez’s track, calling its release a “poor decision” in a series of videos he shared on Instagram Story.
“Tory Lanez, poor decision brother,” he said Ross. “Dropping that project… Just outta respect for Breonna Taylor, bruh, we gotta respect these sisters. That ain’t how you address the accusations you facing. That was a poor choice, homie. You ain’t getting no money with that s**t.”

Meanwhile, TMZ is reporting that Megan Thee Stallion’s lawyer is alleging Lanez’s camp have been falsifying emails and planting then in the press in order to create a “false narrative” in the media.
“We have been made aware of manipulated text messages and invented email accounts that have been disseminated to the media in a calculated attempt to peddle a false narrative about the events that occurred on July the 12th,” her attorney, Alex Spiro, told the site.
