Be you, be yourself with it, with no boundaries or borders that stop you from doing what you do.” – Tory Lanez

I’m just a very generous person, so a lot of the time even if (another producer) were to ever bring an idea to the table and ask me to change it all completely around to the point where it sounds nothing like it (did before), I’ll still give that person credit for that (ahead of myself).” – Tory Lanez

I personally feel like there’s nobody f**king with me. All these kids out here, rappers, singers, all your favorite artists, they’re all going to have to take the number two right now. If you’re in the number one spot, you gotta slide over to number two. I’m completely confident. I’m completely ready. I’m in the best shape of my life. I just feel like no one can stop me. At the end of the day, I haven’t even begin to even get to anything that’s remotely close to what they call a peak. I’m just getting warmed up. My warm up game is about kill everybody in the championship round. It’s that serious. ” – Tory Lanez

23.) On NOT Dissing Drake:

“I’m getting money over here. I’m good. I’m young. I’m finally in a position to feed my family. Please don’t take that away from me. All I wanna do is rap. I’m a f—— Drake fan. Drake could diss me 20,000 times, and I would never diss him.” – Tory Lanez

24.) Mistake Are Inevitable:

“Yo, I need ya’ll to know, I’m coming for the game, the biggest artist in the world. Everybody on DX, some of ya’ll probably gonna hate, some ya’ll probably not gonna like me, but it’s ok. I’m used to not being liked.” – Tory Lanez

25.) On The Meek Mill And Drake Beef:

Bonus Tory Lanez Quote:

“You know, my dad was a very famous dancer in his time actually, before he started preaching. He was an entertainer as well, so my dad kind of understands that God has a certain purpose for me in my life. And even though I might be in this world right now, he knows that it’s all going to go together for the good and grace of God. He’s never ever been in one of those situations where he just felt like “No you shouldn’t do that.” He always challenged me to be better and supported me. And a couple of times, we’ve been split from each other because I was just very rebellious and I had to take some time to myself. But basically, in those times he always stayed in contact with me and always gave me wisdom, and understanding and knowledge, and stuff like that. I mean it influenced me in a good way, and it helps me even while I’m in the industry–just how to deal with people, how to talk to people, treat people with respect and be humble.” – Tory Lanez
