Tory Lanez has high praise for Weezy. The Canadian crooner tweeted yesterday (Jan. 19) that Lil Wayne will die the best rapper of his time and era.

"LIL WAYNE WILL DIE THE BEST RAPPER OF HIS TIME and ERA," Tory tweeted. "Niggas gotta stop the bullshit and give the man his credit."

Tunechi is undoubtedly one of hip-hop's most prolific rappers, as the New Orleans MC has put out tons of solid albums, mixtapes, features, singles and the like. Shout-out to Tory for paying homage to one of the game's greats. Wayne has yet to respond to Tory's tweet, but maybe the two will end up collaborating in the near future.
