Tory Lanez Apologizes for Calling Himself the 'Best Rapper Alive'
Tory Lanez is having a moment of clarity.
The rapper-singer has never been one for humility, but he’s had a change of heart. Tory took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize for once claiming that he was the “best rapper alive.”
“Lol yo I’m sorry for the time I said ‘Im the best rapper alive .. even if I feel that way about myself . It’s a dumbass statement,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
In retrospect, he realizes that his comment may have been arrogant. “And even though I’m always ready to stand behind my talent . It made me look like a dick head . And I’m truly not that. so yeah . My bad lmao,” he added.
The apology follows a tweet from January 2019 where he laid claim to the throne. “IM THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE RIGHT NOW …… I WILL BODY ANY OF YALL NIGGAS OUT ! PERIOD ….” said Tory.
IM THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE RIGHT NOW …… I WILL BODY ANY OF YALL NIGGAS OUT ! PERIOD ….
