After much anticipation, Tory Lanez dropped the fifth installment of his beloved mixtape series, ‘Chixtape 5.’

The album is inspired by iconic R&B hits of the early 2000s and is stacked with features from the likes of Ashanti, The-Dream, Lil Wayne, Lloyd and more—all of whom teamed up with Tory to remix songs from their extensive catalogs. Lanez stopped by For The Record to discuss the project with Genius Head of Artist Relations Rob Markman and explained the complicated process of clearing samples for the album. He also discussed why Melii chose to sign with his One Umbrella imprint over Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label.
