Kiely Williams of R&B girl group 3LW just told Drake to apologize to Megan Thee Stallion, sending a shot via Twitter. Moreover, she responded to comments Drake recently made about artists who reach streaming milestones deserving bonuses. “We should get bonuses like athletes to motivate the future artists to be consistent and competitive,” he wrote this week. “So feel free to send me a Lebron sized cheque I have enough dinner plates,” adding a laughing emoji and heart. Williams then responded to these comments via Twitter. "Oh f**k off," she clapped back. "It’s something like 1000 streams = 1 album sale. Go to bed, Aubrey. And apologize to Meg. Better yet, delete that whole album."

Moreover, the 36-year-old referred to Drake's alleged shots aimed toward Megan Thee Stallion on his song "Circo Loco." It's from his collab tape with 21 Savage, Her Loss, and apparently references the Tory Lanez situation. "This b***h lie 'bout getting shots, but she still a stallion," he rapped. "She don't even get the joke, but she still smiling." Many interpreted these bars as being about Megan, whom Tory Lanez shot in an altercation in July of 2020. Back when Drake dropped this bar, authorities hadn't yet found Tory guilty of the crime.

Meanwhile, Meg herself addressed the diss, as she juggled her legal battle and album drop at the same time. It was certainly a lot to handle, and she didn't hold back. "I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak ass conspiracy theories in bars to my name lol," she tweeted. "N***as nor h**s EVER address me or @ me WITH a fact or receipts. I AM CLOUT B***H keep sucking my pussy...

"Stop using my shooting for clout b***h ass N***as!" she continued. "Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot ! You n***as especially RAP N***AS ARE LAME! Ready to boycott bout shoes and clothes but dog pile on a black woman when she say one of y’all homeboys abused her." For what it's worth, since she tweeted this in November, no party has said that things smoothed out. Still, hopefully things got cleared up behind the scenes. However you may feel about Drake's streaming comments, stay tuned to HNHH to see if the Meg apology comes anytime soon.
