Tory Lanez And The New Toronto
Tory Lanez has had a busy new year. He dropped two mixtapes on New Year’s Day, Chixtape IV and The New Toronto 2 (TNT2). This comes five months after he released his debut album I Told You which had the radio single “Say It” as its anchor. TNT2 is eight tracks and includes original beats and concepts. Chixtape IV uses a lot of older songs as a base, but the beats were still cut up in a unique way.
The fact that he dropped two separate projects may strike some as odd, but they are different sounds. He utilizes auto tune on both projects which may not be advisable, but Lanez sees it as his strength. ChixTape IV provides a relatively light hearted experience (there is a song that includes The Proud Family as a sample). It takes the listener on a trip through old rhythms and melody’s such as “Just A Friend” by Mario (obviously that is a remake in itself), “Differences” by Ginuwine, and “Need A Girl” by P.Diddy.
TNT2 is a much truer to life version of what fans can expect on his forthcoming studio offering. It is a slower project than the other tape. It is filled with bangers like “DopeMan Go” and “Talk To Me Nice” and is a well put together project that ends up having a couple tracks worth two listens.
Tory Lanez has continued to capitalized on his newfound fame and having dropped two mixtapes only months after releasing his studio album, he shows no sign of stopping.
