The 405

The rapper-singer seems more determined than ever to prove there's a space for him in the forefront, and he's never stated his case more strongly than here.


Tory Lanez manages to inject Memories Don't Die with a few quality tracks, but overall it misses the mark on classic appeal.


Lanez is obsessed with showing up anyone who doubts him, but if Memories is supposed to offer evidence proving them wrong, it is a miserable failure.

Like the debut, this set is well over an hour in length and would greatly benefit from some editing and more diversions from prowling trap-styled productions. Judicial trimming still wouldn't prevent it from appealing primarily to the Lanez fans who take the criticisms almost as personally as the artist does.
The Needle Drop

Tory Lanez is so similar to his contemporaries that it's hard to see the point of Memories Don't Die's existence.

The Guardian

He’s so profoundly unoriginal you start to wonder if he is actually a rudimentary Spotify AI project who has been fed the RapCaviar playlist and given an edgy beard.

The Guardian's blurb is such a read omfg
I remember listening to this when it dropped and it absolutely sucked

I liked quite a few singles of this,and by that i only mean Shooters but besides that i wasn't really excited for this record,it just falls flat on it face

My main problem with Tory Lanez is his autotune,he tricks you into thinking his music is good for most not very knowledgeable of music,a lot of the tracks fell very boring and milked out of the only good parts of the record

This is the only record i never returned to,i ... read more
Diet Drake. But I Like Drake so...
Nothing really memorable of this project at all.
Tory Lanez proves on this album that he has no creativity. He just jumps from trendy sound to trendy sound hoping his loud rapping and soothing voice could save the album. They can't. The album is a chore to finish right from the beginning. He doesn't have anything remotely interesting to say across the album. He manages to get a couple of songs right, but on 18 tracks, it's only normal if a few of them are decent. Overall, however, this is a mess from the Toronto rapper.
