Late last week, Tory Lanez threw down the gauntlet when he called himself “the best rapper alive right now.” And now Don Q has answered his call.
A few days ago, the New York rapper fired shots with the intimidating “I’m Not Joyner,” named in reference to Joyner Lucas, with whom Lanez feuded last year. It’s racked up more than a million views on YouTube alone.
Lanez clapped back with “Don Queen,” which resounded with ultra-personal, below-the-belt roasts—a strategy he’s now becoming known for. “How could I beef with a dude only poppin’ in four cities?” Lanez sneers. He also dismisses Q, a longtime associate of A Boogie wit da Hoodie, as “Boogie’s shadow,” and ups the ante with a vicious claim that Q has an STD.
But forget Don Q: Lanez has bigger beef on his plate. After specifically calling out J Cole, yesterday Lanez exchanged tweets with Dreamville rapper JID, who’s eager to defend Cole and his label’s honor.
In real time, this shit bigger than Tory, y’all really be having dreamville fucked up, niggaz try to disrespect cole one of the realist people I ever met, bro changed my life and I can feed my self now, I ain’t going for no Dreamville disrespect, it’s on sight, bout whatever
