Bun B doubles down on supporting Megan: “We have to protect our Black women”

“And if my relationship with Tory Lanez is damaged, then so be it,” he said.

Bun B is doubling down on his initial statements about Tory Lanez following his shooting incident with Megan Thee Stallion.

On Monday (Dec. 14), the “Get Throwed” emcee spoke to HotNewHipHop about his previous comments when he said Lanez did “some whore shit” to 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. We have to protect our Black women and any Black man that doesn’t feel the same way is not my brother.”

Later in the interview, Bun explained his ties to Megan — which extend beyond music. He said his wife knew the Good News rapper’s father, who was killed when she was very young.

“And so when we’ve been around Megan, my wife has been in a position to kind of tell her things about her father that she maybe didn’t know because her father died when she was very young,” he explained. “He was murdered. And I let her know like, as you move through hip hop, things can get crazy. Every now and then, if you find yourself in one of these crazy situations, don’t worry about it. We will protect you. You know, I’m an elder in the city, we’re gonna protect you.”

Back in August, Meg named Tory as the person who allegedly shot her. Bun took to social media to immediately call him out for his actions.

“Tory Lanez did some whore shit, period,” he said. “Yeah, I know Tory, I know his manager and all them, fuck all that though. Fuck all that. If the man on drugs, get him some goddamn rehab. If the man got mental health issues, get him some therapy. But you not gon’ sit here and shoot this girl and we not gon’ say nothing. That shit not real n*gga shit. It’s not. Anytime a man hurts a woman, that’s obsession. That ain’t love. He had no reason to shoot this girl.
