In a separate post, Tory shouted out Gold specifically and said the future of his One Umbrella collective was in his hands.

“Two and a half years ago my brother Yoko and I orchestrated this record for his project, we never thought nothing of it. It collected dust in a hard drive. Guess God had a different plan for it.”

He continued, “Never thought I’d say this but I wanna thank the Umbrellas for LEAKING this record. Yoko it’s your time. Hold the Umbrella down while I’m gone.”

The new single comes as Tory Lanez‘s sentence for shooting Megan Thee Stallion has been delayed once again after the Canadian star’s legal team requested a continuance from the presiding Judge Herriford.

According to reporter Meghann Cuniff, Lanez was scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday, June 13, but the sentencing was postponed at the last minute at the request of the rapper’s legal team, who now have until August 1 to submit a sentencing recommendation before a new sentencing date of August 7.

Cuniff further stated that Lanez did make a brief court appearance while wearing a black cap and an orange jumpsuit.
