Fargo Fridays is back in a big way, as Tory Lanez has unveiled two massive remixes. This one -- to Drake's "Controlla" -- will likely turn more heads due to the inner-city beef that has been simmering between the two multitalented Toronto artists. The dancehall-inspired R&B tune has become a signature of Drake's, and "Controlla" is perhaps the most masterful effort of that cross-genre style that he's released in his career. Of course, the island sound has begun to seep into the mainstream, and other hip-hop/R&B artists have been dropping off new dancehall-inspired singles in time for the summer. One of the most noticeable examples was Tory's latest single, "Luv" -- loved by many, but not by those in OVO. Boi-1da, the lead producer of "Controlla," implicated the song when he tweeted, "If I hear one more terrible dancehall attempt of a song I'm out," and he proceeded to compare Tory to the Pokemon Ditto -- known for taking the form of a stronger being.
Was Tory intending to stir the pot with his "Controlla" remix? Likely. Regardless, it's sounding pretty nice...
Boi-1da certainly won't appreciate listening to Tory go in over his beat, and Drake will likely be infuriated if he hears Tory's "Controlla" instead of his own at this year's Caribana.
One time for the rude boy, yeah you know that
Hundred down on the new toy, and you know that
I've been looking for you baby
You need somebody wavy
300 down on the Wraith, I bought the whole thing
Young nigga getting this cake, it's not a joke ting
