Tory Lanez dropped two mixtapes over the weekend Chixtape 4 and New Toronto 2, and he definitely has everyone chatting. I had the chance to see Tory at his I Told You concert and his energy is amazing. I wasn’t a huge fan before the concert but I’m slowly liking his vibe more and more.
These mixapes are installments from previous tape series and I must say Chixtape 4 is nostalgic to early 2000s R&B. Samples from Pretty Ricky, The Proud Family Theme song, R. Kelly, Bobby Valentino just to name a few are all through the tracklist. Tory puts his new age R&B (trap soul) spin on the samples or what he would call Swavey. The mixtape is definitely playable from start to finish without skips, glad he slowed down with the skits.
New Toronto 2 had more original beats and more vibe music, Chixtape 4 is presented as if it was written for a special girl (noted in the intro). I probably enjoyed New Toronto 2 more than Chixtape 4 but all in all both were solid projects. Tory Lanez had an amazing 2016, I’m excited to hear what is in store for the Toronto native. Listed below are my top 5 tracks from each tape. Contact me and let me know what were your favorites.
