It all started when a fan asked Royce Da 5’9″ who he though won the friendly rap battle between Joyner Lucas and Tory Lanez:
Lanez, the proud lyricist that he is, did not take kindly to this opinion and took to Twitter dot com to provide an opinion of his own:
Oh really? Royce Da 5’9″ is not a good rap battle judge? THAT’S the hill you’re willing to die on, Tory? In my professional opinion, I advise against that sort of logic in the future.
Unfortunately, Tory Lanez did not heed my advice and instead doubled down with his Twitter fingers. Royce replied with a subtle “fuck you but whatever I don’t really care” and Tory replied by being a complete fucking idiot.
Tory is still dying on the hill of Royce not being a good lyricist. It’s a bold strategy, Cotton, let’s see if it pays off for him (spoiler: it doesn’t).
Aaaaaaaand it looks like we’ve got a good ole fashion rap beef on our hands, ladies and gentlemen. I don’t know if Tory Lanez is trolling or not, but I’m fairly certain Royce doesn’t play that shit. Credit to Royce for letting the first couple of tweets slide because Tory’s Canadian. Unfortunately for Tory, though, he’s very dumb and couldn’t help himself.
Good luck to Tory Lanez on staying alive for the near future, I think he might need it.
