What began as two Toronto Artists coexisting in the R&B realm quickly escalated into a beef between Drake and Tory Lanez.
Lanez released The New Toronto a while back. The title itself evokes the idea of the “end of a legacy,” and the ushering out any current, popular Toronto talent, namely Drake. On “Summer Sixteen,” Drake referenced the mixtape title, saying:
“All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little/All your exes know I like my O’s with a V in the middle/You would love it if I went away or didn’t say nothing else”
There’s clearly a power struggle between the two, and, if Drake’s opening show last night is any indication, this feud doesn’t look like it’ll cease anytime soon.
Many have suggested that Tory Lanez, as well as a handful of other artists, are incorporating reggae type beats into their music after the success of hits like “One Dance” and “Controlla.” Drake was quick to comment by opening up the show with “Summer Sixteen” and switching the first line to: “All you boys doing fake controllas wanna be me a little?”
Of course, the diss could be aimed at a large majority of people, a talent Drake seems to have a knack for. It’ll be interesting to see if/how Tory Lanez will react.
