"It's really sad to see somebody at that kinda reminds me of, like, Bobby Shmurda, but Bobby Shmurda didn't even get to go as far. For somebody to go that far, you got Kanye, Nicki Minaj, your album's dropping. It's like, the only ni##a who had s##t like that popping was Tupac. When Tupac was in jail he dropped the biggest album. Not to say it was the biggest album of all f##king time, but it was a pretty big moment. It's sad he's gotta be locked up during it, is all I'm saying.," Tory told Tim Westwood in a December 3, 2018 interview.

"I brought him out in L.A. I brought him out in different places. When he would go on stage its like yo they reacting to this n##ga like in a different type of way. So at the end of the day who are we to take away from this n##ga because we don't like this n##ga," said Lanez.

I’m not a hater just I find 69 and PAC in the same sentence wired and I don’t disrespect people with mental health issues just because I think Ye is a wolf dressed like a sheep. Cuz whenever he speaks of love it just rubs me wrong. They both are genius though so all respect for that!
