In the track he also appears to question her injuries as he says,
“Gotta see a couple questions: how the f**k you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons??How the f**k your team is trying to pay me in some whole millions??I just lost like 10 million dollars because this cold business?But I got like 10 million followers that’s gon’ roll with me”
