Tory Lanez’s biggest singles may feature the Canadian artist singing, but the “Luv” crooner can also rap with some of the best of them.
The I Told You artist recently stopped by the Funkmaster Flex show on Hot 97 to spit an eight-minute freestyle over Nas’ classic “Oochie Wally” instrumental. “I ain’t in that lab, writing/Everything is off-top/Word to my bald spot,” he raps.
Tory then takes a shot at some of hip-hop’s newer generation, spitting, “I’m doing this shit for all the people who respect the classic New York culture/I’m doing this shit for all the young niggas who don’t respect this culture because I come, and I respect everything.”
The rapper also gave a few shout-outs to “legendary MCs” such as Juelz Santana, Jadakiss, Styles P and Cassidy. “I know what the fuck I came from, nigga/And this is what the fuck I came from/I respect all the legendary MCs/I do this for niggas like Kiss, Juelz, Cass, Styles P, everybody,” he delivers.
Before footage of Tory’s freestyle was released, he called himself one of the best rappers out today. “I’m really TOP 5 In this rap shit, tired of niggas thinking it’s a game,” he tweeted. “BETTER YET FUCK IT @funkflex RIGHT NOW!! let’s get It.”
Over the weekend, Tory and 50 Cent came together to work on new music. The Queens rapper posted a photo of himself with the Canada rap star, captioning, “We working on something, chill you will hear about it. @torylanez lights cameras action.” TORY LANEZ IS TAKING DATES AT MTA CLICK HERE -> BOOK NOW
