Memories are important to Tory Lanez. In fact, the concept comes up at least five or six times throughout our brief conversation, each time with different context. It's no secret that Lanez is inspired by the R&B hits of the past—look no further than his massive hits "Luv" and "Say It," or any of his Chixtape projects for proof—and many of the tracks that he's flipped hold personal significance for him. But it's not just his own memories that play a significant role in his life and his artistic output. He's concerned about creating memories for others too, and seems driven by the idea that he himself could be to one of his fans what Tanto Metro and Devonte or Brownstone were to the younger version of himself.
