It’s not uncommon for rappers to write rhymes about current events, but some subjects certainly carry more weight than others. In a new song with Dream Doll, Jadakiss put a couple of bars on the track, one of which made reference to the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion.
The track is called “Outside”. The veteran veterinarian came up with his punch lines that clearly related to other hot topics this year (ie, the entire “entanglement” of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith / August Alsina), but perhaps the one about Tory Lanez ended up not as for some as for other .
It was a line where fans hit that rerun to make sure they heard it right.
In his verse, Jada says, “Big man says we don’t play shorty games, retire, bus on her foot (pow pow) Tory Lanez.”
Jadakiss was apparently referring to the allegations that Tory Lanez shot Megan Thee Stallion. Since July, the incident and a major conversation about protecting black women, especially when talking about their perpetrators, have permeated social conversations on the internet and beyond.
So it was no surprise that Jada, despite being a song, came across some criticism of the bar.
Although a few “hotties” on Jadakiss’ Instagram page managed to tell him mostly about themselves, the verse seems to be flying under the radar. Jada hasn’t responded to the criticism yet, and neither Megan and Tory have said anything about the song.
It would probably be in Tory’s best interests to keep calm about the situation in court. He is expected to appear in front of a Los Angeles judge next month for the three offenses he’s faced in connection with Megan’s shooting.
We exclusively reported that Tory Lanez was beaten with a warrant against Megan who identified him as the man who shot her in the Hollywood Hills on July 12th.
We promise to keep you updated on this case and more.
