Today’s the day star rapper Megan Thee Stallion released Good News, her highly-anticipated studio debut, and the album features a song called “Shots Fired,” on which she addresses being shot, allegedly by Tory Lanez. 

She also addresses her former best friend, Kelsey Nicole, referring to the pair allegedly conspiring to harm her.

“Good News,” the long-awaited debut album from rapper Megan Thee Stallion, hits eager fans of hers today, buoyed by the track, “Shots Fired.”

“You want the M’s, and not the top, I guess that made my friend excited / Now y’all in cahoots, you a puss in boots / You shot a 5’10” b***h with a .22 / Talkin’ ’bout bones and tendons like them bullets weren’t pellets,” Megan blasts on “Shots Fired.” “A pussy n*gga with a pussy gun in his feelings / Okay, he in the backseat and he keep callin’ me a bitch (He a bitch) / We all know this shit I coulda came back with (Lil’ ass n*gga).”

She continues: “He talkin’ ’bout his followers, dollars and goofy sh*t / I told him, ‘You’re not poppin’, you just on a remix’ (What’s poppin’?) / Now here we are, 2020, eight months later / And you still ain’t got no f**kin’ justice for Breonna Taylor (Breonna Taylor).”
