I think it is safe to say YES! He is.
Daystar Peterson AKA Tory Lanez came along way from his freestyling on youtube thru his teenage years, rapping over artist beats such as Lloyd Banks Beamer, Benz or Bentley, all the way up to his first successful debut single, “Say It” off of I Told You album which is now being certified Platinum after hitting number 1 on not only on the Rhythmic chart but Urban radio charts as well.
We cannot neglect to also mention him being the highest selling urban artist in 2016.
