Rapper Drake is calling for fellow Canadian rapper Tory Lanez's freedom amid Megan Thee Stallion's 10-year shooting sentence.

Following the Cleveland show of his "It's All a Blur-Big As the What?" tour, Drake posted a black and white photo of Tory on his Instagram and captioned it " 3 you," a slang term for free you.

Tory was found guilty of shooting Megan last year August and was sentenced to 10 years in jail and denied bond.

Megan's lawyer had earlier said that Drake and other doubters would be humiliated ahead of the verdict but Drake is still throwing more support to his fellow Canadian.

It appears Tory will be staying put for the time being despite Drake's wishes, Tory has made peace with the situation.

In August 2020, Megan alleged that Lanez shot her in the foot following a pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house in July.

October 2020, Lanez was charged with one felony count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and another for carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

On his Grammy-nominated " Her Loss" album Drake sent a slick shot to Megan about her lying about being shot by Tory.

In the song "Circo Loco, featuring 21 Savage in his lyrics Drake says " This ... lie 'bout getting shot but she still a stallion,"

"Shorty says she graduated, she ain't learn enough

play your album track one, 'kay, I heard enough."

Following his new call for freedom  Drake says the " hotties" won't be getting an apology any time soon.

Megan responded to Drake at the time in a social media post, writing, “Since when ... is it cool to joke abt women getting shot! You ... especially RAP ... 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."

 “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,” Megan added on a follow-up tweet.

Most fans are not pleased with  Drake for still standing with Tory and this is not the first time he has upset them, others seem to support him.
