avatar for Tory Lanez

Tory Lanez

Tory Lanez is one of the hottest emerging artist in hip-hop. Annexing evermore hip-hop and R&B territory for his native Toronto, Lanez’s baritone and rumbling basslines, haunted by ghosts of UK grime, has a more sinister, dystopian edge than is often associated with the Toronto scene. After several years of releasing mixtapes, Lanez appeared on a cut from YG’s hit album My Crazy Life, “Me & My Bitch,” in 2014. That year Lanez released the mixtapes Conflicts of My Soul: the 416 story, Chixtape II, and Lost Cause, as well as the EP Cruel Intentions. In 2015, Lanez released the first single from his upcoming album, “Say It.” Whereas many contemporary references to 90s R&B emphasize the hushed tones of Aaliyah, here Lanez works with the maximalist, dookie braids-and-doorknockers R&B of Brownstone’s “If You Love Me.” Such individualism on a buzzing single aptly demonstrates Lanez’s hustler’s ambition to follow his own muse and leave his own imprint, an ambition on the precipice of fulfillment.
