Tory Lanez dropped new music, but he has been blackballed by many media outlets and artists due to the Megan Thee Stallion drama over the summer.
The album Daystar, Lanez addresses Megan Thee Stallion claiming he was her shooter. He also accused her team of setting him up to take the fall. There haven’t been many other artists or entertainers who have come forward to defend Lanez in recent months, but yesterday (September 29), the singer’s father Sonstar Peterson participated in an interview where he declared his son’s innocence.
Sonstar spoke for over an hour and revealed he’s been in ministry for 40 years, condemned publications for speaking negatively about his son. “You would go to that extent to put your blog or your magazine out there to see something that… but I’m saying that they’re doing it for one reason and one reason only. ‘Cause here is a young man who is not going to back down. We have seen what the industry has done other Black young men.”
He continued saying, “There have been a lot of lies that have already been told,” Sonstar said, before naming off publications that have spoken to “sources” who have said that Tory was the shooter. “I think a lot of these people, be it TIME magazine who put Megan on their front cover as the most influential person fo the year and then put Tory in another page as being the poster child for how to block troublesome artists on your Spotify. I want y’all to know very clearly: This game ain’t over yet. When the stuff really starts to come out of the closet, they will realize who was right, who was wrong.”
