Tory Lanez is officially going to prison

Recommended Posts



Tory Lanez, who was sentenced to a decade in prison in the shooting of rapper Megan Thee Stallion, will serve his 10-year sentence in state prison after a motion for bail was denied.

In a new motion filed this week by Unite the People attorney Crystal Morgan, Lanez's lawyers requested for Judge Herriford to halt his prison sentence during the appeal process and allow him to live in the Los Angeles area with his wife and 6-year-old son, according to courtroom reporter Meghann Cuniff and Rolling Stone.

The sentence for the 31-year-old Canadian rapper, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, was handed down last month after several delays. Lanez was given about 10 months of credit for time he's served since his conviction.

The verdict brought an end to a dramatic trial that created a cultural firestorm in the hip-hop community, churning up issues including the reluctance of Black victims to speak to police, gender politics in hip-hop, online toxicity, protecting Black women and the ramifications of misogynoir, a particular brand of misogyny Black women experience.

In an Instagram post shared two days after his sentencing, Lanez addressed his fanbase and said he "will never let no jail time eliminate me."

Tory Lanez’s lawyer was nowhere to be found in court as Tory’s appeal was denied & he was sent to prison to serve 10 years.

Instead, the lawyer opted to share his support via an Instagram story post with a prayer emoji.
