"Shots Fired" is released on the heels of slanderous misinformation being presented about a car she received as a gift being repossessed. Although the actual car dealer spoke candidly about the situation being false, (Part 1 http://bit.ly/cy9kIx & Part 2 http://bit.ly/aCAlKR), very few outlets issued a retraction or event posted the update.

They'll chose to see the truth, or they'll run with what's more entertaining, either way I'm moving forward."
