Last night (October 3), Megan appeared as the first musical guest of the new season of the popular US late-night television sketch show, which was hosted by Chris Rock.
During the performance of her hit single ‘Savage’, Megan and her dancers stopped to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed by police officers during a raid on her home in Kentucky in March.
The Texas rapper played a clip of audio from Malcolm X’s ‘Who Taught You To Hate?’ speech. She also called out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron over his handling of Taylor’s killing, sharing comments made by activist Tamika Mallory, who accused Cameron of being “no different than the sellout negroes that sold our people into slavery.”
Megan herself then proclaimed: “We need to protect our Black women and love our Black women, because at the end of the day, we need our Black women.”

Elsewhere during the show, Megan returned to the stage with Young Thug to perform a live version of their new collaborative single, ‘Don’t Stop’.
The track’s eye-popping video was released earlier this week, blending a number of fantastical references, including Alice In Wonderland and Edward Scissorhands.

In August, Megan claimed on Instagram that it was the Canadian rapper who had shot her. In a surprise-release album called ‘DAYSTAR’, which arrived on September 25, Lanez said Megan and her team were “trying to frame me for a shooting”.
