Daystar Peterson, aka Tory Lanez, is part of a new breed of MC that’s changing the shape of rap to come. The 22-year-old thrives in the gray area where singing and rapping intermesh, and he can swiftly shift from lingering on a syllable to full-on cooing. Peterson tests the limits of his abilities to bridge the distinct vocal styles on the best tracks from his second mixtape of 2014, Lost Cause. On “A Week Straight” he packs a range of emotions into a few inflections, vacillating between vulnerability, pride, and pain while pushing his voice till it nearly cracks. The song’s raised-by-the-streets narrative is well trodden, but Peterson’s performance makes it feel like his experience is singular. —Leor Galil
