Tory Lanez was interviewed by Tim Westwood earlier this week and was, of course, asked about 6ix9ine. In the interview, the rapper compared Tekashi to Bobby Shmurda. Tory explained, “It’s really sad to see somebody at that platform…it kinda reminds me of, like, Bobby Smurda…For somebody to go that far, you got Kanye, Nicki Minaj, your album’s dropping. It’s like, the only n**a who had shit like that popping was 2Pac.”
” was insinuating to 6ix9ine dropping his album DUMMY BOY while incarcerated. As many know, 2Pac also dropped an album while in jail as well.
The “TAlk tO Me” singer took to Twitter to clear the air about his statement in the interview. He tweeted, “I did not compare 6ix9ine to 2 pac … I just said they both dropped big albums from jail at the level of fame that they had. Get off my dick.”

The Game also had some words to say about this statement. In the (now deleted) Instagram post, The Game went on a rant telling rappers to stop comparing others to 2Pac. Tory Lanez responded to The Game on an Instagram story, consisted of, “Stop the subliminals.”
Was The Game right in calling out rappers who make comparisons to GOATs like 2Pac?
