On December 23rd, a California jury convicted Daystar “Tory Lanez” Peterson of assault with a semi-automatic handgun, having a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and gross negligence in discharging his firearm.
Those charges stemmed from a July 2020 shooting that injured Hip Hop star Megan Thee Stallion. The “Savage” hitmaker publicly accused Tory Lanez of firing a weapon at her on the night in question. Megan later testified against him at trial.
Los Angeles County prosecutors secured a guilty verdict against Lanez in the felony assault case. However, the Sorry 4 What album creator’s family immediately blamed the Jay-Z-founded Roc Nation Company for the legal outcome.
Tory Lanez’s Dad Ignites Conspiracy Theories About Roc Nation
Roc Nation manages Megan Thee Stallion’s career. According to reports, representatives of the agency attended the trial. Lanez’s father, Sonstar Peterson, lashed out at Roc Nation after the court revealed the guilty verdicts.
“I’ll tell you exactly how I feel. I got some names I wanna call out,” said Sonstar Peterson outside the courthouse last week. “[Attorney] Alex Spiro, [Roc Nation CEO] Desiree Perez, and the whole wicked system of Roc Nation, including you, Jay-Z.”
Sonstar Peterson also speculated that Roc Nation’s alleged animosity to Tory Lanez is because the rapper/singer refused to sign a deal with the record label. As of press time, no one has presented any evidence proving that claim.
