Drake Stands by Tory Lanez, Calls for His Freedom Amid Appeal for Shooting Megan Thee Stallion

Drake, the Canadian rapper, has publicly shown his support for Tory Lanez, who is currently appealing his sentence for shooting Megan Thee Stallion. In an Instagram post on Monday, Drake shared a photo of Lanez with the caption “3 you,” a phrase commonly used to express the desire for someone’s freedom, symbolizing open handcuffs.

Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison in August after being found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in her feet in 2020. He is now seeking to appeal the court’s verdict, with a hearing scheduled for Monday.

Drake’s support for Lanez comes as no surprise, considering their previous collaboration and Lanez’s involvement in the music industry. However, it is worth noting that Drake had previously made controversial remarks about Megan Thee Stallion in his song “Circo Loco,” which led to a social media exchange between the two artists.

Megan Thee Stallion, who accused Lanez of shooting her following a pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house in July 2020, has been vocal about the incident and the subsequent backlash she faced. She expressed her disappointment in the response from the rap community, particularly in relation to her being a Black woman.

Lanez was charged with assault and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in connection with the incident. Megan’s allegations and Lanez’s subsequent legal troubles have sparked a larger conversation about violence against women and the treatment of Black women in the music industry.

Drake’s public support for Lanez is not the first instance of a rapper defending him and pointing fingers at Megan Thee Stallion. Nicki Minaj, another prominent artist, also made similar claims, suggesting that Megan lied about being shot and comparing her to Rihanna’s experience with domestic violence.

As the appeal process unfolds, the case continues to draw attention and raise questions about the treatment of victims and the responsibility of artists in addressing such issues. Megan Thee Stallion, in a recent interview, expressed her frustration with being portrayed as the villain and questioned whether her appearance and identity played a role in the public’s response to the incident.
