One of his videos caught the attention of Sean Kingston who helped him land an act on Justin Bieber’s tour in 2010.
After self-releasing multiple mixtapes such as “Lost Cause”, “Chixtape”, and “The New Toronto”, the Canadian rapper met Benny Blanco with whom he has been working ever since.

What Makes Him So Successful?
Releasing quality music and having his name included in various controversies is what makes the hip hop artist so successful. Since the mid-2010s, Lanez quickly became one of the hottest rappers in North America thanks to his “swavey” style. In March 2018, he released his sophomore studio album titled “Memories Don’t Die” which topped multiple charts in Canada and the United States. In the next two years, he released four other studio albums, all of which were just as successful.
Since his rise to the top, the rapper has been a hot topic in media and television. Over the course of his career, he has had many memorable feuds with other public figures and celebrities such as Drake, Jacques, Joyner Lucas, and Don Q. He has also faced many legal issues with the most recent being the shooting arrest and charges of fellow rap artist Megan Thee Stallion. Since then, his career has had a downfall. Besides negative responses and reviews towards his music, his streaming figures also decreased significantly from 30 million to roughly 9 million.
