Some call him a “Remix God“, but Tory Lanez continues his run of remixes with the release of his latest mixtape, “International Fargo“! While folks are waiting for “Chixtape 5“, he holds over fans with this one. One track that stands out on this however is his remix of Jamaican Recording Artist on the rise, Koffee’s “Toast“! Produced by Walshy Fire and Izy Beats, Tory borrows the original and adds a few bars on it but left Koffee’s original parts on it. Tory also remixed the massively popular “Touchdown (Remix)” on his project which was originally done by UK Dancehall Artist Stylo G, Rapper Nicki Minaj, and Dancehall Icon Vybz Kartel, and dropped some lines on his remix to Dancehall/Afrobeats Artist Davido’s “Fall“.
With “Toast” cracking the 23 million mark on Youtube and showing up on Jordan Peele’s “US” movie, Koffee has a lot to give thanks for. We need a proper remix of “Toast” out here too featuring some of the established and upcoming names. “International Fargo” is out now, Koffee’s Rapture EP is out now, and you can check out the “Toast (Remix)” below.
