Megan Thee Stallion Defends DaBaby After Fans React To Alleged Collaboration With Torey Lanez

Rapper Tory Lanez announced an upcoming collaboration with DaBaby. For some, this was controversial since DaBaby has worked closely with Megan Thee Stallion, whom Lanez was accused of shooting last summer. After Twitter debates sparked about canceling DaBaby, Megan defended him, saying that the verse was “old and not cleared.” She also tweeted, “Nice try,” followed by laughing emojis, a sign that she unbothered by the matter.

In her initial tweet reacting to a fan who said, “f*ck dababy all 2021,” Megan announced that the “Cry Baby” video would be dropping soon. “Cry Baby,” a song from Megan’s debut album “Good News,” is one of several hits Megan has with DaBaby.

Another smash-hit the two collaborated on was “Cash Sh*t,” a record from Megan’s EP “Suga.” According to Hip Hop DX, the latter “cracked the Billboard Hot 100’s top 40 in 2019.” Undoubtedly, it was the song of the summer in 2019. So, when it was speculated that DaBaby was working with someone who allegedly did harm to Megan Thee Stallion, it ruffled some feathers.

Some even brought up the back and forth between Doll and the City Girls. One tweeter wrote, “Megan debunked the Tory and Dababy rumor faster than she came to Asian Doll’s side. telling…”

Others brought the conversation back to protecting Black women and the lack of care Black women seem to face. They noted, “Da Baby working w/ Tory Lamez is why black women be saying that we’re weak and embarrassing,” with a facepalm emoji following it. There was also conversation about Megan collaborating with Cardi B, who was has been at odds with Nicki Minaj, whom Megan has also collaborated with.

Refuting this claim, a Twitter user wrote, “I’m a barb but Megan collab with cardi is NOT the same as da baby collab with Tory. Why? Cardi didn’t shoot Nicki in the fucking foot.”

Overall, this situation has garnered mixed opinions from social media users. Still, it does not seem to be affecting the respective careers of the rappers, who are all picking up steam in the new year.
