Canadian rapper Tory Lanez who is currently doing time after being convicted of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the leg has been transferred to State Prison.
Tory was admitted into North Kern State Prison in Delano, California, on Tuesday, according to prison records.
The rapper was sentenced to 10 years in prison in August after he was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Pete, in the foot after the pair left a party in Los Angeles in 2020.
He also had to take a new mugshot when he almost seemed unrecognizable.
A jury convicted the rapper, who pleaded not guilty to three felony charges in December, of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
He was transferred after he failed his bid to appeal his conviction.
“The denial of the appeal bond is undoubtedly disappointing, but it does not deter us from our mission,” Unite the People, a nonprofit organization representing Lanez in his appeal, said in a statement.
In an Instagram post shared after his sentence, The rapper said he would continue to fight “till I come out victorious.”
