Tory Lanez has shared his first message recorded following his transfer to state prison in California. 

“Ayo Umbrellas, man, what’s good?” the message starts, with Lanez using his nickname for his fanbase, Complex reports.  “I’m talking to you live from prison right now. Man, I’m just happy to get out that bullshit county jail. They was hating on a young fly n***a, you heard? Had me on 24-hour lockdown, half-sized cell by myself. No windows, no mirrors. N***a ain’t even seen himself in a whole year. But with all them disadvantages against me, my head is always been held high, man.”

Lanez claims he is “in great spirits” despite reports that he fears for his life inside North Kern State Prison in Delano, Calif.

As we reported previously, the rapper, 31, is expected to spend three to six months at the medium-security prison before being transferred to a long-term facility to serve the rest of his sentence for the 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion.

The Candian-born artist was previously held at Los Angeles County Jail. His new home is said to be riddled with violent inmates, “as multiple murders have happened there just this year,” TMZ writes.

“Tory is scared for his life and safety in prison. He feels like he is an instant and direct target because of his celebrity status,” a source told Page Six.

According to TMZ, Lanez is being held in “Administrative Segregation” due to his celebrity status. He is “escorted to the showers where he bathes by himself,” and, “if he chooses to spend time in the yard, he’ll be the only one in the fenced-off area.”

“He stands in at 5-foot-3, so his size is definitely a setback,” a source shared, Page Six reports. 

The insider added: “He is housed with real hardcore criminals, murderers. So he is really hoping that his lawyers will be able to continue to fight for his freedom while still maintaining his innocence. The whole thing is a mess.” 

Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in August after he was found guilty of shooting rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the feet during an argument after a party at Kylie Jenner’s home in Los Angeles in 2020.

Tory Lanez is heading to state prison as the rapper’s latest mugshot ahead of him being transferred was leaked online.
The Toronto rapper, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, is currently a guest of the state and is a resident of North Kern State Prison in Delano, California, at least for the next 10 years of his life. According to TMZ, the rapper was successfully transferred on Tuesday, and the latest mugshot was taken ahead of the transfer.

Tory Lanez is not his usual smiling self as he stares at the camera and appears to have missed a few haircuts. His hair and beard are overgrown, and he is almost unrecognizable, as his skin is also absent of its usual glow.
The rapper’s efforts to stall the process were unsuccessful as he was denied bond while awaiting a hearing of his court of appeal matter last week. Tory Lanez had been in police custody since last December after he was found guilty of three felony charges – negligent discharge of a firearm, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm, in the shooting of Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion.As for his appeal, a date has not been set for a hearing.

Although his freedom has been taken away, the rapper’s legal team shared a few changing decisions that took place before his transfer. The rapper got married to his son’s mother, Raina Chassagne.

As for his life behind bars, it’s unclear if he will get conjugal visits. The rapper’s lawyers previously lamented that he was being held away from the general population, but he will be able to be around other prisoners at Kern State.

As for music and work, the prison reportedly offers jobs that bring a payment of $0.08 an hour for unskilled labor and up to $.30 an hour for skilled labor. Prisoners have to apply for the gigs. It’s unclear if he will be recording music from prison.

As for his appeal, a date has not been set for a hearing. The rapper is appealing his conviction on factual and legal grounds. According to Ceasar McDow of Unite the People, which is leading his appeal, the rapper is appealing his 10-year sentence on the basis that it is excessive.

“We feel that Mr. Peterson was disproportionately sentenced to be a first-term candidate to be convicted and get 10 years for his first time in prison. We feel that’s disproportionate. We feel that he wasn’t given a fair shake,” the lawyer said to journalists after his bond hearing.

In the meantime, fans reacted surprised to see Tory Lanez with his hair grown. The Canadian rapper famous battled severe hair loss for the greater part of his career, but reportedly underwent hair treatment a few years ago.
