Tory Lanez Early life

Daystar Peterson was born on July 27, 1992 in Canada to Bajan’s father, Sonstar,  and Curaçao and Guyanese mother Luella. The family was based in Montreal, before moving to Miami, Florida.

Daystar was known to practice and refine his rapping skills throughout his childhood, before tragically discovering that his mother had died of a rare disease. Following his mother’s death, his father began working as a pastor and missionary, causing them to move frequently throughout the United States.

Daystar’s father later remarried and the family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where Daystar met his friend Hakeem, then a porter. He was given the nickname Daystar “Lanez” by Hakeem, as a comment on Daystar’s buzz seeking trends, which sometimes saw him rolling around in the street, not looking for traffic and playing in the lanes.

In 2006, he was sent to live with his cousin Dahir Abib, Orane Forrest, in Jamaica, Queens, New York, because of his behavior issues. Daystar was then forced to return to Toronto with his grandmother. Since she refused to care for him, he was alone at 15. “Eventually, I moved into the city center with these three bugs that I didn’t really know.

I came into the house and didn’t realize how things worked. From like 15 to 18, I was just fighting them. Every man was for himself. That’s what made me a man, having to look after myself and being in a situation where there is no father, no grandmother and no mum to your help you. The person I am today changed “, he said.

He then started rapping again, before giving himself a nickname, Notorious (which is a reference to the dead Notorious B.I.G. rapper he idolized), and adopting his new moniker “Tory Lanez”. At the age of 16, Daystar dropped out of tenth grade, and would begin performing songs at the outdoor concerts.

Cole.  Lanez then challenged the entire Dreamville artist roster in response, with rapists including Dreamdoll responding with their own tracks aimed at Lanez.


In response to Tory Lanez’s diverse rap beef, Karlton Jahmal of Hip-hop publication HotNewHipHop said “the art of competitive lyrical battle rap has been missing from the mainstream wave for years …”, until Lanez brought ‘ the culture is exactly what it has been missing with its friendly yet competitive take.
