Tory Lanez Enlists Ryan Hemsworth and Evokes Drake on “Mama Told Me”

The R&B star rehashes darker days while eyeing the bright future that’s now within his grasp.

Showing no real signs of slowing down, Tory Lanez—aka the R&B guy you ought to be watching—has filed yet another excellent Fargo Friday drop, this one called "Mama Told Me." Built upon ethereal yet slightly nightmarish production by Ryan Hemsworth, Play Picasso and Lanez himself, it finds him rapping about darker days past while eyeing a bright future that's now fast-approaching. The song definitely evokes a certain other Canadian star (e.g. I'm a rich young nigga from the 416, all the Boy and all my niggas finally here talk), but that's not really a problem, is it? Lanez's Lost Cause mixtape is out September 29th.
