On Thursday, Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez posted on Twitter to declare himself “The best rapper alive right now”
Hip-hop fans aren’t too far removed from hearing Lanez send an open-call to the world at large, in the hopes of securing worthy battle-ready opponents.
Joyner Lucas answered the first challenge, acquitting himself quite comfortable in the situation, but a slight majority still sided with tory for the win. So, to no one’s surprise, Tory Lanez jumped on Twitter to declare himself the current best, while also questioning the work ethic of his closest competitors – a list too long to read in one sitting.
in a third successive tweet, Tory Lanez offered J. Cole and Pusha-T the loaded compliment of being among his “favourite rappers,” yet mocked their unwillingness to engage in battle. “equal opportunity,” he openly states, is his preferred way to-do-battle, and lure the most talented rappers into the trap.
Tory’s next tweet reiterates his desire to conquer the globe. and in all honesty, a willingness to wear many hats could see him rise to the summit – one day.
