It’s been an interesting ride for Tory Lanez, to say he least.
After toiling in independent scene for years, Lanez’ career took off when his major label single “Say It” hit the airwaves in 2015. Thanks to the Platinum success of both that and its follow-up single “LUV,” his major label debut I Told You peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
Of course, being from Toronto meant that he would inevitably get those unwarranted Drake comparisons, which led to the two subtly (and, at times, not-so-subtly) jabbing at each other on wax and beyond. Ultimately though, the two would squash their beef, with Tory joining Drake at his OVO Fest in 2017.
Tory now comes through with his sophomore studio album, Memories Don’t Die. An 18-track effort—led by the previously-released singles “Shooters,” “Skrt Skrt,” “B.I.D.,” and “Real Thing” with Future—the Brampton native also recruits 50 Cent, Fabolous, Wiz Khalifa, NAV, and a few others.

Ahead of the project’s drop, Tory stopped by Sway In The Morning, and participated in his “5 Fingers Of Death” series where he rapped over beats from Diddy (“All About The Benjamins”), Jadakiss (“Still Feel Me”), 50 Cent (“50 Shot Ya”) and Cam’ron (“Welcome To New York City” and “Down And Out”).
