Late last week, a Canadian rapper named Dax came for Lanez, dropping a diss record titled “I'm Not Joyner or Don Q.” The record didn’t seem to be based on any real tension between the two; Dax starts off his verse saying, "Hey no hard feelings my n***a."
We gon' laugh about this one day
This was not murder, it was manslaughter
You brought it upon yourself
From yours truly
The next upcoming Canadian hip hop artist Dax.
Lanez didn’t take the diss in stride, and by some chance coincidence, he ran into Dax in person. The interaction can be seen in an Instagram video shared by DJ Akademiks, where Lanez says, “Come here or this shit not gonna end my n***a.”
“Apologize, bro,” he demanded multiple times.
Back in January, Lanez took to Twitter to declare himself “the best rapper alive right now.” He even made a point to specifically mention both Pusha-T and J. Cole. “Don't tell me nothing about Cole or Pusha-T either,” he said, adding that they are both two of his “favorite rappers” but—in his opinion—haven't stepped up. “I gave them both an equal opportunity to go bar for bar with me,” he said. “And they weren't READY.”
