Tory Lanez will admit this much, when it comes to jump shot form, his certainly isn’t the prettiest; the most accurate, that’s a different story.

“I have, like, the ugliest shot that you’ve ever seen,” said the Canadian hip hop artist. “But somehow, someway it always goes in. It’s crazy.”

We caught up with Tory Lanez to chop-it-up about everything from his basketball skills to his hit record Luv to why he knows every word to the Family Guy theme song.

Jason Jordan: I always like to gauge the sports backgrounds and experiences of all of my guests on the Celeb Chop-Up; what sports did you try coming up?

Tory Lanez: I was a pretty active kid, I played basketball, I played baseball, football, hockey as well because I lived in Canada.

JJ: OK, everyone had a shining moment, tell me about yours.

TL: (Laughs) I don’t know man! I like to play basketball and I have like the ugliest shot that you’ve ever seen, but somehow, someway it always goes in. It’s kinda serious on the court.

JJ: End result is all that matters, aye! Let’s take it random in 3,2,1… What do yellow traffic lights say to you?

TL: (Laughs) Get through it before it turns red! It’s supposed to tell me to slow down, but…

JJ: What’s your biggest pet peeve?

TL: Relaxing in filth. I like to be clean. I’m a very clean person. I hate when things are dirty.

JJ: What competition based reality show would you absolutely win?

TL: Ooh probably American Ninja Warrior. I would kill that! I’d be amazing in that.

JJ: President Obama’s Secret Service code name is Renegade; if you were President what would you pick your code name to be?

TL: Fargo! I don’t know why really… Maybe short for Wells Fargo!

JJ: Would you rather have the power to be invisible or the power to read minds?

TL: Oh wow that’s a great question! I would pick the power to read minds. It just opens up a lot of possibilities. It’d be too much for me, but I’d take it!

JJ: How would you use a rewind button in life?

TL: I would just change some of the mistakes I’ve made along the way. My ultimate goal in life is to try and become a better person daily and to affect others in a positive way so I’d go back and change some of the mistakes I’ve made in the past.

JJ: Let’s hop into the DeLorean Time Machine (Back To The Future), which era would you want to drop in on?

TL: I would love to go back to the 1980s! Everything was funkier back then; I think that’d be a really cool era to drop in on for a lot of different reasons.

JJ: If you would 100 percent get away with it which crime would you commit?

TL: (Laughs) Oh wow! I don’t know man that’s a weird question! I think I commit small crimes every day anyway. I speed when I’m not supposed to and things like that!

JJ: Who would you never want to meet in a dark alley?

TL: Hitler! I’d never want to meet him in a dark alley.

JJ: Good call. If you could go back in time and get the truth about what really happened in any infamous mysterious event which would you pick?

TL: Wow. Wow, that’s big! If I could know the truth about Area 51 I’d definitely pick that.

JJ: Pick one: 12 rounds against Mike Tyson in the ring in his prime or five rounds against Anderson Silva in the octagon in his prime?

TL: (Laughs) Well, either way I’m gonna lose so I guess I’d pick Silva because it’s five rounds and I’d run around the ring as much as possible.

JJ: What sitcom intro song do you know every word to?

TL: Oh man Family Guy and Friends for sure! I know both of those!

JJ: What random fact can you tell me right now?

TL: (Laughs) I know what the placebo effect is. It’s basically like if someone says they have the cure for cancer and you believe them, but really it’s a sugar pill and you really believe in it. I have no idea why I know that.

JJ: OK, we’ve got the single Luv which is on fire right now, of course the album I Told You dropped recently; talk about those things and everything else you’ve got coming up that fans can look forward to.

TL: We’re working on the iTunes movie for all the people that heard the I Told You album to now have an I Told You movie. That’s probably one of the biggest things that I’m working on right now because it’s a deeper look into things that I was talking about on the album. I’m working on a lot of new music with a lot of different sounds; things that I wouldn’t even think that I’d do. I’m talking sounds from the 70’s and 60’s. We’re just working on a lot of different things for the consumers right now.
