TORY LANEZ SHORT DOC

 

 

“It’s simple B. I just go.” “Y’all can fucking do anything you fucking want,” Toronto talent Tory Lanez told a packed-out Brixton Electric last month, as he scaled the walls of the south London venue.

 

A lot of rappers trot out that inspirational message, telling fans that anything can be achieved if they grind hard enough. Lanez’ difficult route to the brink of melodic hip-hop greatness, however, suggests that he lives by that mantra for real.

From a period living on the streets, to a job in Denny’s, before finally working his way up to appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and more, his slick R&B is forged in some tough times that have only strengthened his resolve to make it to the top.
