Back in August, Bun B came to Megan Thee Stallion‘s side and spoke out against Tory Lanez after the Good News rapper revealed that it was Lanez who shot her. Now, in a new interview HotNewHipHop, Bun has shared that he has no regrets in calling out Lanez, and why he felt it was necessary to publicly defend Megan.
“I mean, people are usually waiting for that first person to say something, and then more and more people will step to the table,” he said. “I feel like if I hadn’t said anything, I’m not sure how much people would have even spoken on this issue.”
“And if my relationship with Tory Lanez is damaged, then so be it,” he added. “We have to protect our Black women and any Black man that doesn’t feel the same way is not my brother.”
Previously, Bun had addressed the situation between Megan and Tory in an Instagram post in August.
“As an OG in Houston, I’m standing up… I know Tory, I know his manager… Fuck all that though… If he has some mental health issues, get him some therapy. You not just going to sit here and shoot this girl and we not say nothing… Anytime a man hurts a woman that’s obsession, that ain’t love. He had no reason to shoot this girl,” the Houston rapper said.
As HipHopDX noted, Lanez addressed Bun on his album DAYSTAR, rapping on the track “Sorry But I Had To…”:
We got Bun B on live saying I should burn in a cage/In these times of Black lives, he saying I should turn to slave/If [Pimp C] heard that, then my n-gga would have a rage right now/No diss to Pimp and Bun, but you made ‘Big Pimpin’,’ son/Pouring champagne on women faces while they flick they tongue/I’m too young to give you lessons, but I’d like to give you one/Please stay the fuck up out my case, I ain’t convicted, son.
Megan recently released her debut album Good News; she has also been nominated for Record of the Year and Best Rap Song for her “Savage Remix” alongside Beyoncé for the 2021 Grammys.
