Speaking of music, Tory Lanez new album just dropped on everything from Apple music to Soundcloud. Tory Lanez samples some of our favorite 2000 R&B songs in his latest album Chixtape along with including some well known artist  in the tape as well. The hour and 10 minute long album includes 18 songs that create a smooth throwback vibe .Though Lanez is extremely talented he would not be able to accomplish this vision without the featuring of Lil Wayne , T-Pain ,  Ludacris, Chris brown, Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz,Lloyd, and Ashanti ,Jagged Edge and Fabolous , Slim and Nyce. Lanez is no stranger to creativity and he makes this clear when he gives us a blast to the past with phone calls, story lines, and skits throughout his album. His latest mixtape Chixmake has fulfilled the 2000 R&b mix that listeners crave. The album is not only catchy but brings us back to much simpler times; who knew we missed some of the greats so much ? Tory Lanez definitely did. 

Each song on the album allows for a smooth alternation while still  incorporating a different yet creative era we still adore It was genuinely refreshing to hear the old bears clash with his new R&B style . The Song Went from  Jerry Sprunger featuring T pain which our 2000 love song interest to Beauty in the Benz featuring Snoop Dogg touching the heart of all our inner rappers. He is not only a rapper but expresses his talents as a vocalist in as well. Overall his newest album has reintroduced us to the Tory Lanez we knew in the beginning of his career.
