Since the KIRK rapper joined up with Tory Lanez for the “SKAT” video last month, Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby haven’t been on speaking terms. They both unfollowed one other on social media after a public dispute on Twitter, thus ending their formerly cordial friendship.
DaBaby chose to bring out Lanez during his set at Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday (July 25), just after Megan performed, in what looked to be an attempt to rub salt in Megan’s figurative wounds. Lanez’s identity was first covered by a massive outfit, so it wasn’t immediately evident.
“I’ll give somebody out here a million dollars if they can guess who in here,” DaBaby said. Lanez was then assisted out of the outfit, which drew mixed comments from the audience.
Tory Lanez is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020, after a wild night out with Kylie Jenner ended in the Toronto native’s arrest.
Lanez pled not guilty to two felony counts in November — assault with a semiautomatic pistol and driving with a loaded, unregistered firearm — and maintains his innocence.
However, there are many others who support Megan, as seen by someone in the audience throwing a shoe at DaBaby’s head midway through his performance.
Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby have worked together before on tracks including “Cash Shit,” “Nasty,” and “Cry Baby.” Following the release of the “SKAT” video, DaBaby seemed to repost a tweet mocking the Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident.
The post read, “I guess @DaBabyDaBaby and @torylanez cool now bc the both shot somebody and don’t have to do no jail time.”
DaBaby quickly blamed it on a glitch in the matrix with, “Idk what type of Illuminati shit Twitter got goin on…I ain’t retweeted nothing but ‘Ball If I Want To’ promo. I ain’t retweet that silly shit. Then once ppl start tagging me and I saw it and tried to delete it and undo the retweet Twitter didn’t let me. Type shit yall on?”
Megan replied, “Support me in private and publicly do something different…these industry men are very strange. This situation ain’t no damn ‘beef’ and I really wish people would stop down playing it like it’s some internet shit for likes and retweets.”
It doesn’t appear like a reconciliation is in the cards, based on DaBaby’s newest action.
