Tory Lanez has discussed the postponed criminal trial he will have against Megan Thee Stallion towards the end of the year.
Lanez is accused of shooting Megan and injuring both of her feet in July 2020. The trial was initially scheduled to begin in September, but it was postponed when Tory urged the judge to do so since his attorney was concerned with other cases. Now, between November 28 and December 8, it will begin.
The Chixtape rapper explained on DJ Akademiks Off The Record podcast that he has purposefully remained silent about case specifics since now is not the “time and place” to share those things.
Time and place are the key concepts, Lanez stated. There will be a proper time and location for that. But I am aware that now is not the appropriate moment. As I have stated, the internet is not a therapist. What I say to those folks online is irrelevant. There will be a time and a place because it doesn’t matter until it is that clear-cut.
The difference between many artists and myself, he said, “is that they grow so tired of the ‘Ahh nah!’ And they were being yelled at. individuals feel the urge to communicate with people they don’t know about the accusation or whatever it is they are going through. There is a place and a time, brother, where those who I do not know and to whom I owe no explanation will receive one.
How does he have the endurance to put up with the hatred directed at him, Akademiks said.
Lanez answered, “I don’t know, I’ve never been a patient man. But I’ll tell you this: I’ve always been a time and place man, which is why I mentioned in my most recent interview that while the narrative may be working against me, it’s the story working against me and not me.
“What people don’t realize is that one thing relates to another in a lot of cases and circumstances, and when you start talking about one thing people then connect it to something else, and sometimes, most of the time, those things have no correlation to each other,” says author..
The Canadian rapper continued by claiming that his reserved approach was partly a result of the seriousness of the accusations made against him.
I’m facing 24 years in prison, so I must be making crap look pretty, don’t I? I’m in an open case, so maybe I do make this shit appear really lovely. But guys, I’ll be turning 24 the next month. As if this is not a situation for play. I have three years of experience in this. With you guys, I’ve never played online games. I won’t begin right now.
In October 2020, Lanez was accused by the L.A. County D.A.’s Office of carrying a loaded, unregistered pistol in a vehicle and one felony count of assault with a semiautomatic weapon.
In September, Lanez’s request for a delay was approved by Judge David Herriford. The arbitration of Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer, who is involved in a legal dispute with his accuser of sexual assault, is keeping Shawn Holley, his defense attorney, very busy right now. Additionally, he is defending actor Danny Masterson in his upcoming October 11 serial rape trial.
In Los Angeles, California, during the hearing, Tory Lanez made an appearance before Judge Herriford. The judge also ordered eyewitness Kelsey Harris, who Megan Thee Stallion claimed accepted hush money from Lanez, to return on December 9 in response to a subpoena from the prosecution. Tory Lanez was asked by TMZ how he was feeling as he was leaving the courthouse, and he said, “Chilling.”
Tory Lanez released his album Sorry 4 What on Friday in the music world (September 30).
