Megan Thee Stallion is mere hours away from releasing her debut album, Good News, for her fans.
The hip hop artist has been on a promotional run to let everyone know about her project. She was celebrated by GQ Magazine as “Rapper Of The Year” and spoke about the incident she had earlier in the year where she was allegedly shot by Tory Lanez.
It appears that Megan Thee Stallion’s team was selective of who she gave interviews with that information as the Breakfast Club called her out over it.
DJ Envy stated, “I think it’s crazy because when she does White publications, she’s able to talk and talk about everything that she wants to talk about but when she goes to the Black press and Black publications, there’s a list that the label sends out that [says], ‘Don’t ask her about this, don’t talk about this, don’t talk about that… But we the ones that support her and hold her down and play her music and talk about all the good things that she does and go through all that stuff.”
Today (November 18), the radio show wanted to address previous comments. “We have always shown love to Meg The Stallion,” Angela Yee began. “I’ve personally interviewed Meg The Stallion several times, she’s always been amazing so I wanted to say that first and foremost before we clear some things up… Don’t put that on Meg because I don’t think she’s the person sending out—like Envy said it’s the label that sends it out. This was never a shot at Megan Thee Stallion. She never said, ‘I’m not doing The Breakfast Club’ or any of those things.”
Yee added that it wasn’t just Tory Lanez that couldn’t be discussed as the rapper’s New York Times op-ed was off of the table. Charlamagne added, “Salute to Megan. We’re sending her love, light, and energy. Like you said, Yee, I think people missed the part where we said we’re a hundred percent sure it’s the label. It’s the representatives.” He also made it clear that his comments didn’t have anything to do with the rapper and were targeted at labels “not keeping the same energy for Black media outlets and publications that they do with the White ones.”
Charlamagne also said that he doesn’t want Megan to have to “relive her trauma” by speaking about the shooting incident again, “but it’s about principle.” Check out the segment below.
