Tory Lanez has released a statement via social media after receiving massive backlash for sharing his side of the story of the Megan Thee Stallion shooting on his new Daystar album.
On Tuesday, September 29, Tory shared a lengthy message via his Instagram Story. He has however deleted the post. In the mysterious Instagram story, the Toronto artist appeared to be sharing an affirmation.
“I don’t move on social media’s time,” the Daystar rapper-singer wrote. “I move on Gods time. I don’t operate in fear, I operate in FAITH. I don’t bow down to the lies of man. I stick with the TRUTH of god. And for those reasons. It doesn’t matter who rises against me in this hour and small season. BIG OR SMALL OBSTACLE …. I WILL PREVAIL and RISE to GREATNESS. As GOD SAID I WILL.”
Tory Lanez who released the statement several days after he dropped his 17-song Daystar album, sort to address the July shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion as well as their rumored relationship.
Shortly before the LP’s arrival, Tory broke his silence on Twitter for the first time in months, issuing an apology for not addressing the situation sooner.
He also hinted that he’d be speaking out soon, having people under the impression that he’d be sharing his side of the story via a livestream of some sort. However, he put his thoughts into his music.
After dropping off the album, Tory received criticism from rap fans and critics accusing him of acting in poor taste by speaking on the shooting incident on the album, which he can monetarily profit from.
He was also called out by Rick Ross for putting out the LP right after the Breonna Taylor decision was made, in which a Louisville, Ky. grand jury decided not to charge any of the three officers with her death after firing multiple shots into Taylor’s home after entering her residence on a “no-knock” warrant, killing her.
Tory later gave full details in an Instagram post that he released the album on Sept. 25 because the date is his mother’s birthday and also the day she passed on.
