Video: Yung Tory – “Came Up” ft. OTF IKEY

Dirty Glove Bastard Premieres the Latest Video from the Lil Durk Co-Signed Rapper/Singer’s Free Dope II Project


The Video:

A rising rapper with a uniquely melodic approach to trap music, OTF’s Yung Tory is ready to make moves. Stunting with his posse in a laundromat parking lot, Yung Tory shows off his boundless charisma in Came Up,” his latest video. Rocking a tattered denim jacket, the Jamaican-Canadian artist walks on tables, flexes on cars, and shows off the performing ability that caught the eye of Lil Durk, who signed Yung Tory to his OTF (Only The Family) label. With a drawly verse and infectious hook from Tory and a guest verse from labelmate OTF Ikey, “Came Up” is a highlight from Free Dope II, Tory’s second quality mixtape of 2017. With two appearances from Lil Durk, Free Dope II is an addictive and accomplished project from a promising young artist and the ideal soundtrack to your next smoke session or turn-up function.

Born and raised in Toronto, with a six-year pitstop as a toddler in ATL, Yung Tory is one of the few artist to combine the rap and rasta lifestyles. A vegan since birth, Yung Tory is a committed Rastafarian, strictly obeying his religious diet and imbuing his life and music with the religion’s spiritual tradition. Yung Tory steeped himself in music from a young age, making his first music as a toddler with a karaoke machine. Studying at the church of Lil Wayne, Dipset, 50 Cent, and others inspired Tory to become a rapper. Earlier this year, Tory struck gold with “Water,” his first hit, which has over 1.3 million views on YouTube and featured a remix with an appearance from Sosamann. With the success of “Water,” Tory caught the ear of Lil Durk, who promptly signed the young artist to his Only The Family label and hopped on a remix of “Run It Up,” which appeared on Tory’s Free Dope mixtape, which dropped last year. Riding the wave of his aquatic-themed hit (“I’m the most hydrated artist,” says Tory. “I’m drippy.”), Yung Tory is ready to win new fans and embrace the rock star lifestyle. “I’m about positive vibes only,” says Tory. “I took negativity and I turned it into positivity. It’s a way of life.”

With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels.
