Tory Lanez has been a busy man during quarantine. The New Toronto 3 artist has not only evolved as an entertainer since the beginning of the global pandemic, but he’s taken full advantage of the spoils of riches.
The Toronto artist was cruising Saturday (June 27) in his Bentley Bentayga listening to Usher’s “U Make Me Wanna” when he let the vehicle flex for him. “This shit driving itself,” Lanez says in the video. “This shit driving itself!”
The Bentley Bentayga has a feature where it can change speed in line with local speed limits by reading road signs and Lanez put it to good use in the video as he cruised around 40 mph.
2020 has been prosperous for the 27-year-old Chixtape 5 artist. With everyone having to embrace a “work from home” type strategy at the beginning of the pandemic, Lanez quickly became one of the first artists to make good use of Instagram’s Live feature. Quarantine Radio, which featured outrageous twerk-sessions, Tory adopting the persona of a rowdy host who engaged guests to indulge in some NSFW antics and celebs popping in to give their quarantine updates.
The hype swelled so much that it became proper promo for The New Toronto 3 which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart in April with 64,000 album-equivalent units earned. He had become the heir to the throne of BET Uncut long after the program signed off from BET nearly 15 years ago.
Having a self-driving Bentley is only a small victory for Tory as his recent moves have made him a sought-after guest feature, as he appeared on Jack Harlow‘s highly-touted “Whats Poppin” remix with DaBaby and Lil Wayne.
