Tory Lanez Says He’s An Innovator of Current R&B Thuggy Sound; Talks Drake Beef
Tory Lanez sat down with DJ Drama recently on his StreetzIzWatchin show and discussed a lot of stuff fans have been asking him about.
The ‘Say It’ hitmaker has been going back and forth with Drake which got intensified after Drake released his ‘Summer Sixteen‘ single where he rapped: “all you boys in the new Toronto wanna be me a little”.
Last month, he claimed that he was a fan of Drake and wasn’t sure what the Toronto superstar had against him. But in this interview, which seem to have taken place just before the Super Bowl last month, he talks in length about past issues with Drake (beginning around 6 minute mark). The rising singer from Toronto says maybe Drake feels “threatened” by him that he took a shot on his ‘Summer Sixteen’ single.
Then around the 15 minute mark, Tory goes on to talk about his sound and claims that he’s one of the innovators and taste makers of the current “R&B Thuggy’ wave which got overlooked for years. He claims artists like Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj & Bryson Tiller are currently doing what he was pushing years ago.
Maybe Tory hasn’t done his research. Sigh.
