Tory Lanez Says He's "The Best Rapper Alive"

"Don't tell me nothing about Cole or Pusha T."

Tory Lanez says he's the greatest living rapper.

The 26-year-old Toronto singer/emcee, who released his third studio album, LoVE me NOw?, last October, made the claim Thursday on Twitter, writing, "IM THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE RIGHT NOW...... I WILL BODY ANY OF YALL NIGGAS OUT ! PERIOD."

Lanez also brought up J. Cole and Pusha T as likely contenders for the crown, saying, "Don’t tell me nothing about Cole or Pusha T Either .. some of my favorite rappers but ..... I gave them both an equal opportunity to go bar for bar with me . And they weren’t READY."

He continued, "just remember your favorite rapper wouldn’t step up the last time . BECAUSE NIGGAS IS AFRAID OF THIS WORK."

Last year, amidst his music-based-beef with Massachusetts rapper Joyner Lucas, Lanez also declared he would "smoke" Pusha T and sent an invitation for a battle. In December, Lanez sparked a short-lived beef with Royce Da 5'9 over the Joyner Lucas rap battle that they eventually diffused.
