Tory Lanez pays tribute to classic tracks from R. Kelly, Fat Joe, and Diddy on his new project.
If you were paying attention to music at all between 2000 and 2005, you probably heard some familiar sounds in Tory Lanez' new mixtape Chixtape 4. Every song on the project features a musical reference to rap and R&B's recent past, including some of the biggest radio hits of the time period. As he did with Brownstone's "If You Love Me," on "Say It," Tory uses the source material as a jumping off point to create his own modern interpretation of the samples, bringing about nostalgia from those familiar with the records he's paying tribute to, as well as providing a history lesson to younger audiences.
Samples included on the project that we didn't get to come from Chingy, Destiny's Child, Ginuwine, and more. You can find five of the most memorable samples (which should take you on a trip down memory lane) by clicking through the gallery above.
