Tory Lanez Early Life

Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson, better known as Tory Lanez, was born on July 27, 1992, in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Sonstar, his Bajan father, and Luella, his Curaçao-born mother, both died tragically from uncommon diseases when Tory was 11 years old.
Lanez's said about his mother's passing: At the time I was being very bad because I didn't know how to express myself. Music gave me an outlet to express myself and channel that anger.- Tory Lanez
When Lanez was 4 or 5 years old, the family first traveled to Montreal; later, they made their way to Miami, Florida. The family relocated around the country as a result of Sonstar's work as a missionary and ordained minister after Luella's passing.
Sonstar relocated the family to Atlanta, Georgia, after getting remarried. Tory's friend Hakeem there gave him the moniker "Lanez" because he "loved seeking thrills and running through the streets."
Due to behavioral problems, Tory moved in with a relative in Queens, New York, in 2006. After that, he stayed with his grandmother in Toronto, but she didn't want to look after him.
Lanez said: I ended up moving downtown with these three dudes that I didn't really know… From like 15-18, I was just fighting them. I fought like every day and these were like older dudes. It was every man for himself. That's what made me a man, having to fend for myself and being in a situation where there is no dad, no grandma and no mom to help you.- Tory Lanez
After his mother passed away, he started rapping and gave himself the moniker "Notorious" in tribute to Notorious B.I.G. After dropping out of school at age 16, he adopted the stage name "Tory Lanez" and started appearing at outdoor events.

Tory Lanez Career

After Lanez's mixtape "T.L 2 T.O" was published in 2009, rapper Sean Kingston requested a meeting with Tory in the early months of 2010. Lanez secured a record deal with Kingston's Time is Money Entertainment in 2011 and went on to release four mixtapes that year, including "Playing for Keeps," "Just Landed," "One Verse One Hearse," and "Mr. 1 Verse Killah."
A number of further mixtapes were later published by him, including "Lost Cause," "Conflicts of My Soul: The 416 Story," "Sincerely Tory," and "Chixtape" (2014). "I Told You," his first studio album, was released on Interscope Records/Mad Love Records on August 19, 2016. The popular singles "Say It" (3x Platinum) and "Luv" was included on the Gold album, which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart and #4 on the Billboard 200 chart (2x Platinum).
"Memories Don't Die," Tory's follow-up album from 2018, peaked at #3 on the "Billboard" 200 lists and topped the Canadian Albums Chart. His next two albums, "Love Me Now?" (2018) and "Chixtape 5" (2019), cracked the top 10 on the "Billboard" 200, Canadian Albums Chart, and UK Hip Hop and R&B Albums Chart and peaked at #1 on the Top Rap Albums chart.
After starting to host "Quarantine Radio" on Instagram Live during the COVID-19 epidemic, Tory released his fifth album, "Daystar," on his own label in September 2020. On both the Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums lists, the album peaked at position #4.

Tory Lanez Personal Life

When police were called to a house party in July 2020 that descended into violence, they discovered a concealed firearm in Lanez's car and detained him. Megan Thee Stallion, a fellow rapper, was in the vehicle with her foot hurt.
Megan later disclosed that the wound was actually inflicted by a gunshot and that Tory was the shooter, despite the initial reports claiming that broken glass was to blame. In October 2020, Lanez was charged with three felonies, including assault with a semiautomatic weapon, and a protective order was granted against him, preventing him from speaking to Megan or approaching her closer than 100 feet.
Tory broke the protective order in August 2021, and his bail was raised from $190,000 to $250,000 as a result. Drake, Jacquees, and Joyner Lucas are just a few rappers with whom Lanez has had disagreements. After ending their brief rivalry, Tory and Jacquees embarked on a joint tour. Kai Lanez, Lanez's son, was born in April 2017.
