Hard Knock Tv sits down with Tory Lanez for in-depth interview at Truth Studios.
Tory and Nick talk about his childhood growing up in Toronto and coming back there after moving around a lot because his dad was a missionary preacher. Tory shares his first musical memory and how he first started writing raps after his cousin kept beating him in Madden. So angry that he couldn’t beat his cousin, Tory went outside and wrote something down dissing him as a way vent.
Rapping became even more therapeutic when Tory’s Mom passed away because writing was one of the only outlets Tory felt he could express himself. Tory got his name ”Lanez” because he would play chicken with oncoming traffic running in between lanes and ”Tory” was short for Notorious (after the rapper Notorious BIG) which his friends didn’t want to call him, so he went for the shorten version with Tory.
