Tory Lanez has sent some warning shots to his haters from behind bars on his first verse since being convicted of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
The Canadian rapper/singer appears on The Verse’s “Ginobili” — an ode to the former San Antonio Spurs sixth man Manu Ginobili. The track premiered as part of WorldStarHipHop‘s Heatseekers series on Wednesday (April 26).
On the hook, Tory raps in front of a mansion: “All of you n-ggas that shitted on me, I promise you’ll reap what you sow.”
It’s unclear when Lanez recorded his feature and shot the video, but the lyrics can be interpreted as a response to all of the detractors that have piled onto him since being locked up and convicted in the Megan Thee Stallion case.
The Canadian singer was ultimately found guilty on all counts of shooting Megan in the feet during a drunken dispute in July 2020 following a high-profile two-week trial in Los Angeles in December.
The Sorry 4 What artist faces up to 22 years and eight months in prison, as well as subsequent deportation to his native Canada.
Lanez’s sentencing was delayed once again earlier this month as his attorneys plan to file a supplemental response to their motion for a new trial, which they filed last month.
As Tory Lanez sits behind bars, his lawyer Jose Baez took to Instagram earlier this week to say that his client will soon be coming forward with information that will prove his innocence but didn’t elaborate on what that information was.
“Today is national DNA day and we are happy to announce that Tory Lanez will be releasing information about the DNA in his case that gave false and misleading information to his jury #freetorylanez” Baez wrote on his Instagram Story.
Last week, Lanez penned a lengthy message to the Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon claiming he’s been “illegally” convicted.
“I write this message with the utmost humility, love, and respect for the remarkable stance you’ve taken in regards to fighting for the justice of Black and brown minorities,” he began. “Today I take a stance as an innocent Black man, wrongfully convicted of a crime I did not commit.
“I’ve watched 2 district attorneys from your office by the names of Kathy Ta and Alex Bott unlawfully misuse their authority to hide and suppress any and all exculpatory evidence that exonerates me, or furthers my innocence. I was completely robbed and deprived of a fair trial.”
