Lanez responded quickly, saying that using "similar words" was not biting.
"I didn't steal anything," he wrote. "None of the punch lines they showing are the same...Niggas tryna expose mans for 'similar words' Get out of here fam... Just go on YouTube and type in Tory Lanez freestyle... u won't find nothing that I haven't ripped. I been doin this for years."

Lanez is right that most of the exact lines don't match up, but there were enough similarities to raise accusations of biting from listeners.
