Drake has his fellow Canadian crooner’s back, and appeared to voice his support for Tory Lanez in the Megan Thee Stallionshooting case.

The 6 God took to his Instagram Story on Monday (Feb. 26), seemingly calling for Lanez’s freedom with a photo of the incarcerated singer, which he captioned: “3 you.”


It’s possible Drake used the “3” to rhyme with “free,” while also having the numeral signify broken handcuffs. The 6 God and Tory previously had beef in the earlier portions of their careers, but came together and squashed the feud in 2017.

Lanez is still awaiting yet another ruling in his latest appeal attempt after being sentenced to 10 years behind bars in August for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot.

He was convicted in December 2022 on charges of assault with an automatic firearm, carrying an unregistered loaded firearm in a vehicle as well as discharge of a firearm with gross negligence.

Billboard has reached out to Drake and Megan Thee Stallion’s reps for comment.

Per legal reporter Meghan Cuniff, Lanez — born Daystar Peterson — filed a habeas petition seeking re-sentencing in December, citing statements from his former bodyguard and driver, who didn’t testify during the highly publicized trial.

Drake has had an icy past with Megan Thee Stallion, as some fans believed he took shots at the Houston Hottie on 2022’s Her Loss track “Circo Loco” when rapping, “This b—h lie ’bout getting shots, but she still a stallion/ She don’t even get the joke/ But she still smiling.”

Thee Stallion then appeared to respond indirectly to the OVO boss by calling out “lame rap n—-s.”

“Stop using my shooting for clout b–h ass N—-s! Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot ! You n—-s especially RAP N—-S 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,” she tweeted in November 2022. “People attack me y’all go up for it , i defend myself now I’m doing too much … every time it never ends and this did NOT happen until I came out and said I got shot … y’all don’t fwm okay cool f–k it bye.”
