Im giving Tory Lanez debut album "I told you" 5.5/10 stars and here's why:
I've listened to all of Tory Lanez mixtapes and enjoyed each one. There's no doubt the Toronto native is very talented. Very few artist can sing, rap and write their own music. Lanez is an rnb singer, gangster rapper and reggae artist all wrapped in one. Sadly, Lanez debut album I told you did not exhibit his talents. For starters there were way too many skits. I found the skits to be quite distracting and included too much commentary. Tory Lanez gives us a glimpse of his life when he was sixteen years old and started rapping. The album includes 28 tracks, 14 tracks which are skits. I would have enjoyed hearing more tracks with Lanez singing and rapping instead of just one or the other. Unlike his Toronto counterpart Drake, Lanez has not found a balance in his music. In addition Tory Lanez fails to impress with chorus, his hooks are not catchy. Most of the songs on the album were repetitive and lacked individuality. The album did not provide a different listening experience.
Heres what I liked:
I enjoyed tracks 4. Guns and Roses. Track 6. Flex 10. 4am flex 21. Loners Blvd 25. Say It.
