So finally I hear that my boy Tory Lanez is getting the recognition he deserves. The Prince of toronto ( Drizzy is King ) has been causing up a storm with his early projects and after releasing his EP 'Lost Cause' it seems T Lanez isn't finished shaking up the game.
I first heard Tory Lanez late 2013 , when I came across his project 'Chixtape' and thought 'Who is this?'
I now had my introduction to Tory Lanez, but I needed to hear more of the talented rapper/singer. First thought I had was, 'he sounds abit like drake', so once I found out he was from the 6 (Toronto, Canada) I was slightly put off, thinking he's just one of the many Drake clones. Oh was I wrong.
Chixtape 2 , Tory really found his lane (no pun intended) with classics such as; Crew, Summin Part 2, All That.
Make sure you download !

Thank me later!
In 2014, Tory embarked on a series of releases every Friday with HotNewHipHop, called Fargo Fridays, where he seemed to unleash his inner beast during the countdown for the release of Lost Cause. These Fargo Fridays Included Anthems such as;The Mission, Godfather, Teyana ( Based on his admiration for Teyana Taylor).
Tory Lanez is not only just an amazing artist, he is also heavily involved on the production side too , and on Lost Cause he was co-credited on the production of every song except 1 of the 12!!!
Impressive I know.
To be honest I didn't really think the project was better than 'Chixtape 2' but that could just be me ,download Lost Cause and make up your own mind. Although of course he came through with absolute bangers such as; 'Mama Told Me' & 'A Week Straight'

Now this year Tory has been working mainly with his WEDIDIT Collective members, which includes Shlohmo, RL GRIME, Ryan Hemsworth, Groundislava, D33J, Nick Melons, Juj, 2KWTVR, SUS BOY, Purple.
At the end of June WEDIDIT Collective released Tory's latest project 'Cruel Intentions' shouts out to you , if you've seen that film. 'Cruel Intentions' a 5 track ep which is home to, two of my favourite Tory tracks right now , 'In For It' & 'Acting Like' with RL Grime and Shlohmo on the crazy production.

And now we are here, summer 2015 , and it seems its Tory Lanez season, more and more conversations are being held involving the name of the lyrical , song bird from Toronto.
Tory features on Meek Mill's new album ' Dreams Worth More Than Money' on the beast of a first track 'Lord Knows' but did not get any recognition for the fire hook or even production.
Meek needs to sort that out mate, and I don't think Tory was to happy about it, as he cleared up his part on the song via instagram with a wikipedia image clearly showing his involvment.
Do they not want him to shine?! YA WELL, I don't think they can stop his come up.
