Tory Lanez just dropped the fifth installment of his Chixtape 5 series and dropped in with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk to talk about the project and more!
Chixtape 5 not only includes samples of some of the hottest early 2000 tracks, but the artists themselves also are on the songs. A few of the names include Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, Chris Brown, T-Pain, Fabolous, and Ashanti who was photographed for the artwork of the album. The “Broke Leg” rapper shared that him and Ashanti are good friends and that he looks up to her. Having her on the album cover “Bridges the gap of what’s innovative today and what was nostalgic yesterday.”
When talking about clearing samples, Tory says “It was a nightmare” explaining he didn’t think it was going to work and gained a lot of respect from artists during this process also. Sourmilk asked him if there were any songs he couldn’t get cleared which he shared he was looking to use the Proud Family theme song which Disney was not on board with. The hardest song to clear that did make the project was Jagged Edge’s “Trade It All” since it was on The Barbershop 2 soundtrack.
Speaking on artists he would want to do a full album with, Tory said Chris Brown, Meek Mill, Drake, and The Weeknd are a few names he would consider for that.
