Tory Lanez Releases New Statement, Says He Moves on God’s Time
Tory Lanez has offered a statement via social media following the backlash he's been receiving for sharing his side of the story of the Megan Thee Stallion shooting on his new Daystar album.
On Tuesday (Sept. 29), Tory posted a lengthy message on his Instagram Story, which he has since deleted. In the cryptic post, the Toronto artist appears to be sharing an affirmation.
"I don't move on social media's time," the Daystar rapper-singer wrote. "I move on Gods time. I don't operate in fear, I operate in FAITH. I don't bow down to the lies of man. I stick with the TRUTH of god. And for those reasons. It doesn't matter who rises against me in this hour and small season. BIG OR SMALL OBSTACLE .... I WILL PREVAIL and RISE to GREATNESS. As GOD SAID I WILL."
Tory Lanez's statement comes several days after he released his 17-song Daystar album, which addresses the July shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion as well as their rumored relationship. Shortly before the LP's arrival, Tory broke his silence on Twitter for the first time in months, issuing an apology for not addressing the situation sooner. He also hinted that he'd be speaking out soon, having people under the impression that he'd be sharing his side of the story via a livestream of some sort. However, he put his thoughts into his music.
After dropping off the album, Tory received criticism from rap fans and critics accusing him of acting in poor taste by speaking on the shooting incident on the album, which he can monetarily profit from. He was also called out by Rick Ross for putting out the LP right after the Breonna Taylor decision was made, in which a Louisville, Ky. grand jury decided not to charge any of the three officers with her death after firing multiple shots into Taylor's home after entering her residence on a "no-knock" warrant, killing her.
Tory later explained in an Instagram post that he released the album on Sept. 25 because the date is his mother's birthday and also the day she passed away.
