Tory Lanez-Drake

Toronto Artist Tory Lanez Addresses Rumored Beef With Drake (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Tory Lanez looks to be the next star to emerge from Toronto. His single “Say It” is a Top 10 hit on the Hot R&B Songs and R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts. The track has also led the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart.

As Lanez’s buzz continues to grow, comparisons to another rapper-singer from Canada are sure to follow. There have already been a few instances that appeared like Tory was taking shots at OVO leader Drake. Tory once tweeted he did not like people referring to his hometown as “The 6,” a nickname made popular by the “6 God” rhymer.

Lanez also seemed to throw a subtle jab at Drizzy during a freestyle on Sway In The Morning when he rapped, “I know these n*ggas about to act scary. T.O. n*gga, only spitting without the Blackberry.” Drake famously rapped from a Blackberry phone during his own freestyle on Hot 97 years before.

During an interview with The Breakfast Club, Tory downplayed any speculation he has issues with Drake. The 23-year-old Mad Love artist even came across as if he has mellowed out about Toronto being referred to as The 6.

“Me personally, I feel like the term is kind of corny. I later took [the tweet] down, because I realized I didn’t want to alienate a certain audience. And anything that gives the city legs, regardless, should be supported,” said Lanez.

As far as those Blackberry bars, Tory did not directly mentioned if they were meant for Drake. He skirted around the question when it was brought up.

“Is that a shot?” asked Lanez. “I was on Sway, and I didn’t rap with a Blackberry. I was stating the obvious.”

    I agree the 6 term is corny.

        y’all niggas stupid! ” Indigenous people had lived in the area that was Toronto for thousands of years. In 1793, British officials negotiated the Toronto Purchase with indigenous people. The first city created on that area was called the Town of York, named after Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany, which was designated as the capital of Canada.

        The town was raided in the Battle of York, during the War of 1812, by US forces. The population first had a large population increase when the Great Irish Famine caused many Irish immigrants to move into the city. York was renamed to Toronto in 1834, and it became the capital of Ontario in 1867. In the late 1800s, an extensive sewage system was constructed, and a few decades later, it became the largest alcohol distillation center in North America.

        In 1954, the city of Toronto and 12 surrounding municipalities were combined into a regional government. The postwar economic explosion caused a shift to the suburbs. In 1967, the seven largest municipalities of Metropolitan Toronto were merged into a six-municipality configuration that included Old Toronto, East York, North York, York, Etobicoke, and Scarborough. In 1998, all six municipalities were coalesced into one large city, Toronto, the largest city in Canada. thats the real reason he calls it the six, y’all just came to hate on drake for no reason. he put his whole country on the map and made shit possible for a nigga like tory lanez. what have y’all done lately?

    If he’s trying to remove Aubrey from his spot,he has his work cut out for him. Today’s audience isn’t interested in that much diversity in their lives. If they hear Future,Fetty Wop and Drake every hour on the hour,they consider that a good day.
