Autotune and high-flown trap sounds are used by a sizable portion of hip-hop artists these days, causing room for confusion. Canadian act Tory Lanez was met with a bit of it on Friday (Oct. 28) when his guest verse on a Meek Mill track was mistaken for Travis Scott.
The track in question was “Litty” from Meek’s latest mixtape, DC4. Produced by Sound M.O.B., the Philly native and Lanez exchange machismo-like lyrics on their luxurious lifestyles. Using a heavy amount of autotune, fans questioned Lanez on his approach to the track,
“I can’t sound like somebody I wrote for…” Tory wrote as a defense on Twitter. Lanes shared with HotNewHipHop in 2014, he helped write Scott’s verses on “Brand New Choppas,” a single from T.I.’s Hustle Gang project. “I do a lot of writing and sometimes people don’t really know how much writing I do,” he said. “I did the latest s**t for Travis Scott and T.I., the ‘Brand New Choppas’ s**t, I wrote that.” He also mentioned penning tracks for Jeezy and August Alsina.
