Just as J. Cole's newest single, "Middle Child," set the internet ablaze with a Drake reference and subtle Kanye West diss, here comes Tory Lanez in the wee hours of Thursday morning (Jan. 24) tossing his own shade at the Dreamville legend. The 26-year-old is typically known for remixing someone else’s hits, and many presumed he was an R&B singer, so fans were particularly confused when he boldly stated, “I’m the best rapper alive right now.” The Chixtape phenom took to Twitter to declare, simply, that he “will body any of y’all ni**as out! Period.”
As if that wasn't daring enough, he continued with a message to those doubtful about the validity of his sentiments, "Just remember your favorite rapper wouldn't step up the last time BECAUSE NI**AS IS AFRAID OF THIS WORK."
As far as the rest of us are concerned, we shall see for ourselves, when it's time, as Tory Lanez becomes "the biggest artist in the world."
Let's not forget that he barely let the smoke clear after his beef with Atlantic Records signee Joyner Lucas.
