Megan Thee Stallion Says After Tory Lanez Released 'Daystar,' Her Diss Track Was Ready 'The Next Day'

The headlining rapper revealed why she decided to hold back her Tory Lanez diss track for her album.

Megan Thee Stallion's Good News is making waves and dominating the Billboard charts. Fans have fallen in love with multiple songs on the album and there is already a dance challenge making its way through the internet. 

But the track that has caused the biggest wave is "Shots Fired," in which the rapper bashes Tory Lanez while rhyming over the classic Notorious B.I.G. beat for "Who Shot Ya," as Blavity previously reported

The 25-year-old eviscerated Lanez for allegedly shooting her and leading a social media harassment campaign against her. Despite Lanez using the shooting to help promote his album DAYSTAR, Megan said she ultimately decided to wait to release her diss track.  


Megan spoke to radio station HOT 97 about her new album and told hosts Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg that she had the Lanez diss written the day after he released his album.

Lanez, who faced backlash for using the incident as promotion, made veiled claims on multiple songs, implying that she lied about him shooting her.  

"It comes a time where it gets hard to be the bigger person sometimes. At the end of the day, I can't just keep letting people walk all over me. I can't keep letting people take these jabs at me and I'm not gon' say nothing. That's just not in my nature," she said on HOT 97. 

"When you know you're right and you know you have nothing to prove, you really don't have to give a response. But once you made it rap beef, you put it on wax, now I gotta say something. I really had the song all ready but I was like, you know what, let me just save it for the album. Because it was ready to go the next day. I was like, you know what, let's be calm. Let's be patient. Let's see how this plays out and let me just wait and put it on my album," she added.


The quote is part of a longer interview where the rapper talks about her Grammy nominations and rapid rise to fame. 

Good News will reach No. 2 on the Billboard album charts after bringing in 92,000 album sales in its first week, according to HipHop N More. Megan is also in the running for Best New Artist as well as three other awards for the "Savage" remix with Beyoncé.

As Blavity previously reported, Lanez is facing two felony charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and possession of a loaded unregistered firearm in a vehicle. If convicted he could see a maximum sentence of 23 years.
