When I was 14, I was busy playing Grand Theft Auto and Halo and watching Spongebob. Tory Lanez may have enjoyed those activities as well, but his 14th year holds a deeper significance: that’s when he first picked up the mic. On Fourteen & 40’s, Lanez assures listeners he has been on his grind since before he could drive a car. His verses, delivered in a unique, grainy flow, testify to the years of practice under his belt. The Mekanics (who co-produced the cut alongside Lanez), too, show that they have been at it for a while, creating an edgy beat sampled from Method Man and MJB‘s You’re All I Need. Fourteen & 40’s is the second song release off Tory Lanez’ next project, the currently-unscheduled Conflicts of My Soul.
