Tory Lanez has kept us all entertained with “Quarantine Radio” as we try to live day-to-day through this pandemic. Now, the hit Instagram Live show could be expanding.
In an interview with Billboard, the Chixtape 5 rapper says MTV offered him a deal for the show.
“MTV offered me something like a little 30-minute segment, but I don’t know what I want to do,” he said. “But I want it to be something that the fans decide. If I end up coming up with an idea for it, hopefully, it’ll be on MTV.”
“Quarantine Radio” has seen guest appearances from Diddy, Raven Symoné, Trina, Drake, Fabolous, Chris Brown, Young Thug, Megan Thee Stallion, DMX, Wiz Khalifa and more. With twerk contests and talent shows, Lanez has caught the attention of over 300,000 viewers at one time.
After taking a short hiatus from the hit show, the MC announced that the popular Live will return this week after many states around the country extended their stay-at-home orders.
“4 Announcements,” he wrote on Instagram. “#1 NEW MUSIC FROM ME WILL START DROPPING AFTER MAY 10th #2 QUARANTINE RADIO WILL COME BACK NEXT WEEK! #3 I WILL NOT LET NONE OF MY FANS DOWN CUZ YALL CONTINUE TO RIDE FOR ME #4 WHO DO YALL THINK I SHOULD PUT ON THIS.”
Aside from hosting the hottest show on Instagram, Lanez just became an independent artist after releasing The Toronto 3. The mixtape landed at No. 1 album on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart. Although the “Jerry Sprunger” rapper revealed that he has received huge offers from record labels, he plans to stay independent.
“To be 100 percent, there’s so many labels offering me so much money — like millions of dollars,” he said. “I’ve gotten offers that are life-changing offers, but I don’t care. I already own my masters and publishing and everything. So I don’t see any reason to give that to somebody else.”
