Video: Tory Lanez, “Sh!t (Freestyle)”

FADER PREMIERE

The problem with rappers trying to freestyle over Future songs is that no one can out-Future Future. Texas-via-Toronto rapper/singer Tory Lanez, whose August Conflicts of My Soul tape was some of the best sensitive-thug R&B in a year full of it, avoids this trap by not trying to ape Future whatsoever in his version of “Sh!t,” the latest in his #SwaveSession series. Instead of co-opting the original’s brash staccato, he keeps it slick and melodic, occasionally lapsing into an aggro double-time flow, and slips in a quick Young Thug reference (Young thug, and my chain is a stoner). Up next is Chixtape 2, his R&B project set to drop in 2014, and collaborations with WeDidIt producer RL Grime; in the meantime, watch his San Antonio “PSA (Public Swave Announcement)” video (in which he hat-tips Young Thug once again).

    This is terrible. The guy was a fail with Sean Kingston and he is a fail with his new horrible unknown management, please get this guy deported back to Canada. How do you rep Canada but wear an American flag in your video? So much for Canada, “Tory”. (Porn star name influenced).
