Tapping into the Hip-Hop/R&B music from when thirty-somethings were coming of age, Tory Lanez pulls in the original artists for his reimagined versions of their songs. The array of artists he brings in are legends with classics, but Tory’s well-executed remakes are something to consider. Tonight, we went to the Soul Train Awards. It would have been great to see him nominated for something. Some may argue that he isn’t the type of singer that Soul Train would celebrate, but he is one of the few artists to bring the spotlight back to R&B, in the traditional sense. He incorporates legacy with what’s trending, often.

Based on what we’ve heard on this tape and in his past catalogue, Tory Lanez will be around for a long time. Without further ado, stream the eighteen-track album featuring everyone we love (Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Mario, Trey Songz, Ashanti and Lil Wayne) and miss like Jagged Edge (The Trade), Mya (Best Of You // Busted (SKIT)), Lloyd (Thoughts), and Slim (Room 112). If you’re a fan of good melodies, great experimental production, and beautiful vocals, you’ll appreciate what’s happening here.
