While Tory Lanez released his debut studio album “I Told You” last year, he’s been piece-feeding listeners with mixtapes like January-released ‘Chixtape 4,’ and ‘The New Toronto 2,‘ plus his remix-tape, ‘Swave Session,‘ in April.
Consequently, the 25-year-old artist has now finished his untitled sophomore album, which apparently won’t include any samples; just a whole a bunch of bars. Hashtag: FLAMES.
The album is done ! Finishing Clearance and Art and it's yours .

There is a verse on my new album called "Hate to Say" that's 4:30 seconds of me laying everything on the table ….#Iconic

Additionally, the Toronto native spoke with Hot New Hip Hop recently, where he mentioned his forthcoming album and other industry-related topics.
Furthermore, Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, admits the new project is better than his debut ‘I Told You,‘ including a few features, but zero samples.
“This album will be something different for you to love in a different way [than I Told You]. There’s a lot of bars on this, for sure…It’s definitely not I Told You.”
Moreover, in regards to his debut, Peterson explains:
“It was cool, my problem with it…I wouldn’t even say my problem with it, because I love that album, I still will always call it classic because of what it is, my thing with I Told You when I listened back to it, it was nothing to really dance to.”
Meanwhile, he clarifies:
“And when I say dance I don’t mean necessarily get up and pop-lock, I mean it was nothing that made you like…Like I’ll play this at a party, it was only the two singles that came out.”
Also, he adds:
“But now, for the second album, I’m glad I did that [on I Told You], cause there’s so many different things I can do this time.”
Additionally, Fargo recently performed at Drake‘s 8th annual OVO Fest in their native hometown of Toronto, after squashing their beef.
Moreover, the music news website states the clip premiered is just a brief intro to the full 40-minute sit-down, arriving early next week.
In addition to talking on his new album, we’ll also hear more on Peterson’s thoughts on industry politics and his new baby boy, Kai.
