Tory Lanez pleads not guilty to shooting Megan Thee Stallion

She doesn't appear to address Tory again on the album, which features appearances from Beyoncé, SZA, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, and more.

The small print across the July incident by which rapper Tory Lanez allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion within the toes have dribbled out slowly, first in TMZ, then over social media and movies, then surveillance video of Lanez's arrest that night time, and final month within the lyrics to Lanez's extraordinarily lengthy and self-absorbed album "Daystar". While she doesn't call him out by name, the diss track is clearly a scathing response to the Canadian rapper.

Near the end of a year in which she's dominated pop culture - yet also faced trouble she likely couldn't have imagined just a few months ago - Megan Thee Stallion released her long-awaited debut album on Thursday night. "However, it's mostly a traditional diss track and a strong one, with at least two references to Lanez's 5'3" height (Megan is 5'10"), which was revealed in the aftermath of the July incident.

The lyrics, largely taken from Genius.com, fill in some other minor details and are excerpted below.

Lanez is due back in court on January 20, 2021.

In October he was charged with various felony counts including assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and carrying a loaded unregistered firearm in a vehicle, according to the DA's office.

And if it weren't for me, similar week, you'll have been indicted (Lock yo' ass up)...

"The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted", she wrote. You want the M's, and not the top, I guess that made my friend excited.

I used to be selected, I ain't requested to be this motherfuckin' chilly...
