Tory Lanez isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last recording artist to have his words misunderstood, especially when it comes to someone as revered as the late Tupac “2Pac” Shakur. During a recent interview, the Canadian crooner and spitter seemingly compared Tekashi 6ix9ine to ‘Pac and he obviously caught flack for it.

While sitting down with Tim Westwood earlier this week, Lanez spoke on Tekashi’s legal predicament and how it went down during the very height of his career similarly to 2Pac.

“The only n*gga who had sh*t like that popping was Tupac. When Tupac was in jail he dropped the biggest album. Not to say it was the biggest album of all fu*king time, but it was a pretty big moment. It’s sad he’s gotta be locked up during it, is all I’m saying,” Lanez said, while mentioning Tekashi’s features such as Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.

Fans have been giving Lanez grief over the comment, but he fired back with a not so friendly missive himself.

“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,” Lanez tweeted on Tuesday (Dec. 4).

Welp, that settles that.

Eminem Pays Tribute To 2Pac With A Personal Essay

(AllHipHop News) Paper is tapping current Hip Hop representatives to pay homage to deceased icons of the culture. After Kendrick Lamar honored Eazy-E, the publication recruited Marshall “Eminem” Mathers to pen a personal essay about Tupac Shakur.

“He was taking things further than a lot of rappers at the time — pushing it to the next level as far as giving feeling to his words and his music,” writes Eminem. “A lot of people say, ‘You feel Pac,’ and it’s absolutely true. The way he chose which words to say with which beat was genius.”

Previously, Eminem wrote a letter to Pac’s mother Afeni Shakur. He also drew a picture of the late West Coast legend. Both items are now at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

“When his mother, Afeni [Shakur], let me produce one of Tupac’s albums – the Loyal to the Game album – I wrote her a letter thanking her for letting me do it,” added Em. “You wouldn’t be able to tell the 18/19-year-old Marshall that he would ever be able to get his hands on some Tupac vocals and have that opportunity. It was such a significant piece of history for me and so much fun.”

The Shady Records leader continued his praise for Pac, “Regardless of how good a rapper someone is, it’s easy for things to eventually get dated. But when you make songs like Tupac did, songs that feel like something, that feeling never goes away.”
