The Toronto-based rapper-slash-singer readies Cruel Intentions.

Tory Lanez is another bright spot in a Toronto scene that has produced Drake, The Weeknd and PartyNextDoor. We’ve been impressed with his singing voice since last year’s Chixtape 2, and on ‘Acting Like’, he sounds like a sweeter-voiced Weeknd — with less sleaze — over a woozy beat by Shlohmo.

The song isn’t a one-off: on June 26, Lanez will release the Cruel Intentions EP via Shlohmo’s WEDIDIT collective, right on the heels of Purple’s debut album.

Stream/download ‘Acting Like’ below. FACT TV caught up with Lanez at SXSW for an interview and a capella freestyle.
