Following the release of his new single “Temperature Rising,” Tory Lanez is celebrating becoming an independent artist.

“I waited and calculated for 4 years,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “TO BE MY OWN BOSS … I OWN all my masters/publishing/royalties etc … This may not mean nothing to y’all, BUT SEEING MY RECORD LABEL AT THE BOTTOM UNATTACHED to a Major label is what we have worked this hard for …#TemperatureRising ON EVERY MAJOR PLATFORM OUT NOW!!!”

Back in February, Lanez took to Twitter to announce that The New Toronto 3 would be his last project released under Interscope Records. The mixtape peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

“ITS OFFICIAL, NEW TORONTO 3 COMES OUT MARCH!!!!” he tweeted. “AND AS SOON AS YOU HEAR IT … I HAVE OFFICIALLY FINISHED MY DEAL WITH INTERSCOPE … IT’S BEEN REAL.”

Despite airing frustrations with the label in December, the MC says that their relationship ended on good terms.

“And it’s no bad blood with the label [Interscope],” he wrote in a second tweet. “I HAD A 5 ALBUM DEAL ….I GAVE THEM 12 PROJECTS /ALBUMS if u include all the mixtapes with original music. I can OFFICIALLY go on record and say I exceeded that 5 ALBUM MARK … AND I’M STILL JUST GETTING MY FEET IN THE WATER.”

Last month, the “Jerry Sprunger” rapper revealed that he received a few “life-changing” offers from record label companies, but he wants to remain 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.”
