Tory Lanez continued to promote his new album “I Told You” Wednesday, but his fresh music wasn’t enough to distract from his rumored beef with Drake.
“Nice try, buddy,” he responded when “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne when asked about his recent comments he made in Philadelphia. As previously reported, many believed that Lanez said Drizzy wasn't allowed in that city because of his beef with fellow rapper Meek Mill.
On the radio show, Lanez spoke about having beefs with other rappers in general. “I don’t have a problem with anybody in Toronto,” he explained.
“If somebody has a problem with me, that’s different. You’re going to know if I have beef with somebody, then one of us is just falling out. You’re going to start seeing people missing from either my crew or his crew. I don’t have beef with nobody …You know when it’s beef, because then we just start playing scoreboard, and nobody wants to play scoreboard.”
A conflict between Drake and Lanez first arose after the younger rapper named his 2015 mixtape “The New Toronto,” which Drizzy seemed to respond to in his song “Summer Sixteen.” “All you boys in the New Toronto wanna be me a little,” he rapped.
Afterward, while speaking to Revolt, Lanez was asked about that line and seemed baffled why the “Back To Back” MC would be angry with him.
“If people really do believe that it was a diss or whatever the case it is, I don’t know what the man has against me,” he said in February. “I’m getting money over here. I’m good. I’m young. I’m finally in a position to feed my family. Please don’t take that away from me. All I wanna do is rap.”
Besides stating that he wants to avoid any problems with “Views” rapper, Lanez said that he supports artists from his country, despite what others may think.
“I like the music from Drake,” he told “The Breakfast Club” hosts Wednesday. “I like the music from PARTY[NEXTDOOR]. I like the music from The Weeknd, Justin Bieber. Everything that comes out of Canada musically I support. I support Toronto 100 percent, because I’m on the side of the music.”
