Having built a cult following around his Chixtape series – which sees him flipping R&B classics – Tory Lanez returns with the long awaited fifth instalment.

Taking the concept to new levels with Chixtape 5, the Toronto artist recently revealed the cover which stars Ashanti, and released ‘Jerry Sprunger’ with T-Pain.

Now across the full 18 tracks, he really indulges himself, and his listeners in early-2000s nostalgia, with features coming courtesy of Jagged Edge, Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Ludacris, The-Dream, Mya, Marion, Trey Songz, Ashanti, Lloyd, Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Slim and Nyce.

“2000-2006, I want to personally thank these six years for being the main inspiration to the samples and nostalgia used on Chixtape 5,” Tory says of the record. “I have never went this hard on the production of any of my albums.”
