Tory Lanez is rolling it back to the 2000s in the lead-up to his Chixtape 5 project. The Toronto-bred rapper/singer lit up social media with fresh looks from a bygone era, rocking a durag, baggy jeans and Timberlands.
Tory’s new mixtape is scheduled to drop in November, but he recently dropped the Chixlist, a playlist of songs “that have inspired the Chixtape project.” The cover art includes another throwback with its picture of a pink iPod Nano.
Although Tory likes to pay homage to other people’s music by putting his spin on it, his penchant for doing has caused some trouble. Last month, he was forced to defend himself after being accused of biting Roddy Ricch’s “Ricch Forever” for a track titled “Watch For Your Soul.”
Tory told Ricch, “I used your beat because I loved your version and wanted to tell my own story about my dog that got killed. I didn’t use anything of yours but a Beat (Millions of niggas go on other beats everyday).”
