Tory Lanez has finally revealed a release date for his upcoming project New Toronto 3.
“#NEWTORONTO3 APRIL 10 DO THE MOST VIDEO PREMIERE -TODAY AT 5 PM **********What a Monday ! ******** QUARANTINE QUARANTINE QUARANTINE! *Drops mic*,” he wrote today (Mar. 30) on an Instagram post.
The Chixtape 5 rapper also revealed the mixtape’s cover art on his Instagram account. In the cover art, Lanez is seen holding his son while wearing multiple gold chains. One of the gold chains has a diamond Toronto pendant.
Lanez previously stated that the project would be released this month while simultaneously announcing that he left Interscope Records.
“ITS OFFICIAL, NEW TORONTO 3 COMES OUT MARCH!!!!” he tweeted back in February. “AND AS SOON AS YOU HEAR IT ... I HAVE OFFICIALLY FINISHED MY DEAL WITH INTERSCOPE ... ITS BEEN REAL.”
The “Jerry Sprunger” rapper says he initially had a five album deal with Interscope, which he fulfilled, if you count his mixtapes. Since 2016, he has released four studio albums, including I Told You, Memories Don’t Die, Love Me Now and Chixtape 5, making New Toronto 3 his fifth LP.
Despite airing frustrations with the label last December, Lanez claimed the relationship ended on good terms.
“And it’s no bad blood with the label [Interscope],” he wrote. “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 IM STILL JUST GETTING MY FEET IN THE WATER.”
While the rapper is currently practicing social distancing in his home, his Instagram Live sessions have become a viral sensation. “Quarantine Radio” has caught the eyes of over 106,000 viewers at one time. There have been guest appearances from Megan The Stallion, Chris Brown, DMX, Timbaland, and more. Lanez also allows fans to call in to show off their talents and also hosts a twerk competition.
