Tory Lanez defended himself social media after being accused of biting Roddy Ricch’s work. The outspoken artist, who often drops remixes and freestyles using popular instrumentals, was called out by Roddy for using the West Coast rapper’s “Ricch Forever” beat in a Fargo Fridays series song titled “Watch For Your Soul.”

“u can’t bite no harder than this,” Roddy wrote in an Instagram comment. “@torylanez i thought we was better than this.”

Tory responded, “I used your beat because I loved your version and wanted to tell my own story about my dog that got killed. I didn’t use anything of yours but a Beat (Millions of niggas go on other beats everyday).”

He then told Roddy he wanted to take the conversation off social media since they have each other’s phone numbers.

Tory’s desire to move the conversation away from social media didn’t stop him from elaborating about the creation of “Watch For Your Soul” though. In a separate Instagram post, he slammed claims of jacking Roddy’s style.

“I made this song about my dead homie … Idgaf what y’all niggas is talking bout right now,” he explained. “It really means nothing .. I went on @roddyricch beat cuz I got luv for his music . And his song . I even did certain things in the song to pay tribute/homage to his song and show love .. not for y’all to tell me Im biting someone who ain’t been in the game making PLATINUM records with THIS style for even half the time I have.”

He added, “One thing I want y’all to stop doing tho . Is acting as if my voice ain’t been the same for the last 9 years .. and that I don’t play a part in a lot of these new niggas sounds and styles . First time I met him he told me I inspired him . Y’all niggas can be funny man . But fuck it … let’s just enjoy the music.”
