RAPPER Tory Lanez has been a controversial figure over the past few years
His long-time beef with Drake, combined with his alleged shooting of Megan Thee Stallion has meant Lanez is often making headlines.
How tall is Tory Lanez?
On the Los Angeles Sheriff Office website, the arrest report lists Tory Lanez’s height as 5-foot, 3-inches.
It puts his weight at 120 pounds.
The report, which was made after Lanez was arrested in Hollywood and released after posting a $35,000 bond, also lists Lanez’s real name as Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson.
His stage name – Tory – is a reference to the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., who has been a huge influence on Lanez.
What’s Tory Lanez’s net worth?
Lanez’s net worth has been estimated at $2million (£1.6m).
His single Luv, a collab with Benny Blanco, sold more than 1 million units.
It also earned Lanez a Grammy nomination for Best R&B song.
Lanez’s debut album, I Told You, reached No4 on the Billboard 200.
In 2020, Lanez released Temperature Rising, his first single as an independent artist.
He said: “I waited and calculated for 4 years to be my own boss. I own all my own masters, publishing, royalties etc.
“This may not mean nothing to y’all but seeing my record label at the bottom unattached to a major label is what we have worked this hard for”.
Where is Tory Lanez from?
Lanez was born in Ontario, Canada.
His father, Sonstar, is Bajan and his mother Luella was from Curaçao.
Lanez’ mother died when he was only 11 years old, from a rare disease.
His father then became a missionary and his work involved travelling through US cities.
As a result, Lanez lived in Atlanta, New York and Miami as a child, before setting in Toronto to live with his grandmother as a teenager.
Lanez has said that growing up in Canada is a major influence on his music. He said:
“In Canada, you grow up listening to so much different music that when it’s time to make your own, you subconsciously take what you’ve heard growing up and it goes into your own sound.
“I think that’s what makes music coming from Canadian artists stand out.”
