Climbing Toronto / Austin rapper Tory Lanez has been on our radar for years now and has not been short on releases the past few months including songs "Diego" and "Mama Told Me" produced by Ryan Hemsworth. Today Tory has teamed up with London based production duo Snakehips for a very unexpected but incredible collaboration titled "Dímelo". Snakehips step out of the box on this one and lay down a synth-fueled, 808-heavy, hip-hop meets R&B beat which Tory proceeds to step up and destroy bouncing from singing and rapping seamlessly. The song was made in one night as part of the "Songs From Scratch & Yours Truly" campaign, which spawned tracks like the GoldLink x Chet Faker heater last year. Stream the full song below and we will keep you posted on a download. Enjoy
