Soulja Boy, 50 Cent backtrack on Meg Thee Stallion, Tory Lanez

0 6


Soulja Boy has defended and 50 Cent has apologized to fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion after Tory Lanez was found guilty last month of shooting the “Savage” hitmaker in 2020.

In a Wednesday interview with radio host Big Boy, 50 Cent accepted the guilty verdict and explained why he didn’t believe Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Pete, before the trial. The “Candy Shop” performer previously shared multiple tweets and memes mocking and doubting the “Traumazine” artist’s allegations against Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson.

On Dec. 23, a Los Angeles jury found that Canadian rapper Lanez fired a gun at Megan Thee Stallion’s feet in a fit of rage after attending a party in the Hollywood Hills. After reporting Lanez to police and speaking up about the incident on social media, Megan Thee Stallion suffered a wave of harassment and misogynoir from the hip-hop community and beyond.

“I’m gonna apologize to Megan Thee Stallion,” 50 Cent said Wednesday. “I said some things … on social media I posted things.”

The “In Da Club” rapper added that he didn’t believe Megan Thee Stallion at first — citing a 2022 interview with CBS’ Gayle King in which the Grammy winner expressed her pain and denied having a sexual relationship with Lanez. She later said in court that she and Lanez did occasionally have a sexual relationship prior to the shooting.

“At that point, I knew she was lying,” 50 Cent told Big Boy. “It wouldn’t be no reason for them to be around each other then. From that, it felt like she was lying — to me. … I wasn’t being supportive of her at that point.”

However, after a phone conversation between Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion’s former friend Kelsey Harris — who was there the night of the shooting — leaked online, 50 Cent said he changed his mind. During the call, placed by Lanez from jail to Harris — who said she was at the hospital with Megan Thee Stallion — Lanez told Harris he was “deeply sorry” for something he did and knew Megan Thee Stallion was probably “never ever gonna talk to” him again. The same conversation was played during the trial.

“The only reason why I felt like … I should apologize to her is because … I heard the phone conversation,” 50 Cent continued. “That made me feel like, ‘Oh, s—, now I know that this is what happened’ … And I’m sure that that was probably what would sway people in court too.”

In an Instagram Live video earlier this month, Soulja Boy bashed Lanez and called other rappers out for not sticking up for Megan Thee Stallion.

“Y’all … shooting b— out here now, and ain’t nobody saying nothing?” the “Crank That” artist said.

“I’m the only n— in the whole rap game that’s gonna say something? OK, cool. Well, f— you, Tory Lanez.”

Lanez faces more than 20 years in prison for his crimes.
