A California jury convicted Tory Lanez on three felony charges in 2022, which were connected to the 2020 shooting of Megan The Stallion.
Megan Thee Stallion publicly named Tory Lanez as the shooter. Following his trial, a judge sentenced Lanez to 10 years in prison for assault with a semiautomatic handgun, having a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle and gross negligence in discharging his firearm.
Despite the judicial system ruling Tory Lanez guilty, there are rap personalities who believe the Canadian singer/rapper’s claims of innocence. For example, Wack 100 still thinks Lanez didn’t pull the trigger that night.
“Tory’s innocent… He didn’t do that s###,” Wack 100 said on No Jumper’s Adam & Wack 100 Show. Wack also went on to say, “He’ll be home in two years.” No Jumper founder, Adam22, disagreed.
Adam22 argued anyone claiming Tory Lanez didn’t shoot Megan Thee Stallion essentially accepts a conspiracy theory about the case. At one point, Lanez’s father, Sonstar Peterson, pushed an unsubstantiated narrative that Roc Nation somehow conspired against his son.
“Who do you think shot [Megan Thee Stallion]?” Adam22 asked Wack 100. The longtime manager of rap acts like The Game and Blueface responded, “Kelsey… accidental they’re struggling for the gun, yeah.”
Kelsey Harris, Megan’s former friend, was at the scene of the shooting on July 12, 2020. Harris testified during Lanez’s trial. Prosecutors also presented a text message from Harris that night which read, “Help. Tory shot Meg. 911.”
Akademiks previously expressed skepticism about Tory Lanez’s guilt. The podcaster said, “I’m still kinda a little doubtful, but the verdict is the verdict. I think the people who were reporting at court at that time were biased.”
Megan Thee Stallion recently delivered a message to her doubters and condemners. During her set at the Outside Lands Festival, the Grammy winner declared, “F### all my haters! None of that s### you was doing or saying broke me.”
