This week the Canadians are ruling the U.S charts – Drake has become the first artist of 2015 to sell 1 million albums, while The Weeknd hit No.1 on the Billboard 100. Now Tory Lanez is making waves with a #1 on Billboards emerging artists via Twitter.
The emerging, Toronto native Tory Lanez is a rising rapper, singer, songwriter and producer and since the release of his critically acclaimed mixtape Cruel Intentions in collaboration with cult label WEDIDT, his currency is rising. Featuring productions from RL Grime, Baauer, Shlohmo and D33J in addition to one track produced by Lanez and Play Picasso, he’s also featured on “Lord Knows,” the opening track on Meek Mill’s latest, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Not only is Tory supported by established artists, but he’s also working with some of the world’s most respected producers including Scott Storch and DJ Mustard. Lanez is making plenty of noise and establishing himself as a multi-talented entertainer that brings a refreshing energy to all of his work.
Lanez rose to prominence following the release of his acclaimed mixtapes Lost Cause, Conflicts of my Soul: The 416 Story and Chixtapes 1 and 2. His new project Cruel Intentions EP continues to solidify Lanez as one of the most exciting up-and-coming artists, pushing boundaries within R&B and rap. The mixtape is available to download here.
