Everyone in the new Toronto wants to be like Drake. At least that’s what Drizzy thinks.
Fellow Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez recently appeared on the radio show Sway in the Morning to speak about his upcoming album, the controversy over Tory’s “Controlla” remix, and his pseudo beef with Drake.
When it comes to his “Controlla” remix, Tory says, “I just like that song. That’s all it was. I’m not a hater. I’ve expressed this before. I’ve never been a hater. We like you. We just want to be No. 1. Is there a problem with that? Can I be the best? Can y’all watch me be great? Can y’all allow me to do that?”
Tory even addressed the line in “Summer Sixteen” that was allegedly aimed at him, claiming, “Y’all gotta really look at that line. ‘All you boys in the new Toronto wanna be me a little.’ If he was talking about me, I definitely don’t want to be … I want to be me, the greatest me I can be. So after that was done, what kind of relevance did that hold?”
Elsewhere in the interview with host Sway, Tory talks about just uniting the city of Toronto, saying he’s never used a ghostwriter and doesn’t even write anything down because all of his lyrics are freestyles.
Tory’s debut album, I Told You, is set to drop August 19. Watch the interview up top.
