How tall is Tory Lanez?
Tory Lanez was arrested for having possession of a gun at a Hollywood party and was accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion. In July last year during a party Tory and Megan got into an argument and open shots were fired but Megan said she got shot in the feet although she was bleeding it wasn’t a gunshot it was from a glass cut which she originally said to police as well. The pair were said to be dating during that time and Megan publicly accused Tory on an Instagram live saying he shot her and that his publicist is spreading false information.
Tory got arrested for having a concealed weapon but not for shooting accusation and he even got out the same day by paying a $35000 bond.
Tory claimed in an interview that he had ghost-written songs for several rappers such as Akon, TI, and Travis Scott.
Fued with Rapper Drake:
Tory has had a very complex relationship with fellow Canadian rapper Drake. In 2010, he stated that if Drake did not like his songs, he would pay him $10,000. Drake did not respond until 2016 when he took the beef to another level by taking a shot at Tory in his song Summer sixteen by rapping, “All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little.”
Most famous Tory song:
His song ‘LUV’ was a gobsmacking hit, the biggest success of his career and it was produced by Cashmere Cat and Benny Blanco.
He has recently done some smash hit collaborations with G-Eazy and Tyga on ” Still be friends”, “What’s Poppin” with Jack Harlow, and the latest song “Feels” with Chris Brown.
