Back in January, Tory Lanez announced that he was working on a mixtape that he dubbed Chixtape 5. The “Chixtape” was set be a series of old school remixes featuring samples from 2003-2008 hits like Trey Songz “Can’t Help But Wait,” and T-Pain’s classic bop “I’m Sprung.” In an interview with Rap-Up, Lanez stated: “The stuff that we sample and the way we bring it back is so tasteful that it has its own cult following.”

He was also in the talks of another mixtaple International Fargo, he hadn’t given a set release date for either of the projects, but he had apparently planned on dropping one of his projects today (April 1st). However, in the midst of the hip-hop community mourning the loss of Nipsey Hussle, the Toronto native has decided that the release can wait.
In an Instagram post Lanez shares:
I actually don’t believe this … like I can’t accept it. you taught me so much, 6 years ago u rented a spot Miami to wrk out of for 2 weeks . I learned so much from u in 2 days of talking to u . Last year u recorded a half finished verse on “connection” and u fell asleep on the floor of the studio exhausted from wrk and u still decided to let your nigga hold the couch .. it’s shit like that I’ll never forget . Your attitude an outlook on life is unmatched and will never be captured in its entirety by anyone but you . I’m broken about this . They always kill the good ones ! Goodbye my brother . This is fucking horrible .We love you Nip
He also posted on his Instagram story text stating that he was postponing the release and may be dropping tomorrow.
