A few weeks after teaming up with T-Pain for the “Getcha Roll On” video, Tory Lanez takes on 21 Savage‘s J Cole collaboration “A Lot” for his latest release. Billed as a freestyle, Tory Lanez’s “Free 21” track references 21 Savage’s current immigration situation and more. Notably, the song’s creation was inspired by a video of 21 Savage’s daughter that Tory Lanez recently saw.
“I saw a video of his lil’ daughter this mornin’, it made me so happy to see / Happy her daddy was on the television, acceptin’ awards and actually free / Let’s keep it real, we ain’t finna lie, I think everybody laughed at the memes / And then I realized that that shit is mean,” Tory Lanez raps. “You can’t be jokin’ ’bout somebody’s freedom / Most of these people don’t know the severity of a situation, know where they hearin’ it / All of the blogs that filter the good and cater the bad, man, we need some clearer shit / I’m on a mission to find me some clarity.”
“I don’t know what we need to do as a community but let’s figure this out and do our best to help the homie in whatever ways we can,” Tory Lanez added in a note posted to Instagram.
