Tory Lanez dropped by Nick Cannon Mornings to discuss the start and success of Quarantine Radio, his boxing match with YK Osiris, feeling inclined to speak about the George Floyd murder and social media backlash on celebrities.
The Canadian singer tells Nick what influenced him to do Quarantine Radio. He says, “Honestly, I can’t take full credit. Originally it started from me watching DJ D Nice, and I had seen him have like 100 thousand people watching him, all kinds of celebrities were in there, the Michelle Obama’s, you know all these people and I thought, wow this is incredible that music is bringing everybody together.” He continued, “So one day, I told my Creative Director, let’s do a sound clash, like Backstreet Boys and N’Sync… And we did it, and people tuned in, like 7 thousand, then Bryson Tiller called in and was like “I want to go next”. I wanted to go in there with the intent to just play music.” He says that he’s great at being a host and shares his love for Old School music and 200’s music and that the adlib man was sleeping in his guest room. He then says, “I was on live for like 3 hours, playing music calling girls name, and then one girl calls in and starts twerking. And boom, it becomes this thing!”
