Daystar Peterson is a musician coming from Ontario, Canada.
Peterson was born on July 27 in the year 1992. His father was from Barbados and his mother also an immigrant.
They were living in Montreal, but later had to go live inMiami.
Tory was a kid that liked to pursue his dreams. Since the young age, you could find him writing songs daily.
It all changed when his mother died and Peterson changed a lot. His father had to change his job and they had to move oftenly because of that.
His father later married another woman and they settled in Atlanta. Although Lanez wasn’t a fan of changing their living place all of the time, he says that he is very thankful for Atlanta.
In Atlanta he met Hakeem, a friend of his who gave him a nickname „Lanez“. Tory absolutely loved this nickname.
In 2006, he moved away and started to live with his sibling in NY. This happened because of Petersons personal problems which started when his father got remarried.
He had to chance his living apartment to Toronto later, but his grandma didn’t want to live with him ande he had no chance of it. This meant that Peterson had to care about himself and work even before he was legal.
He said that in the end he found a house where he had to live with a few roomates who were always stressing eachother out. He says that it was very hard for him to keep his sanity in a place like that.
Lanez decided what the other part of his stage name was going to be: it ended up being „Tory“ since he loved Notorious B.I.G and he then left school. He began to sing although he never had a teacher and he didn’t know what he was doing.
In 2009, he published his first mixtape, it was called T.L. 2 T.O.
He was making some music videos back then while he was in Florida and he started to upload them on the internet. He made a YouTube channel and also started to post there frequently.
He was soon noticed by Sean Kington and Sean was interested in seeing Lanez perform since he thought the kid has potential. He told him to appear at Justin Bieber’s performance so they can arrange something.
In 2010, Tory released new mixtapes Just Landed, One Verse One Hearse, Playing for Keeps and the other one being Mr. 1 Verse Killah.
He in the end did set a deal with Kingston in 2011, but he decided not to be involved with the label anymore because he wanted to be a solo singer.
After releasing a new mixtape in 2012, he released some videos he made with G-Eazy. These got viral.
Peterson once made a song called “Teyana” to honour a singer called Teyana Taylor. However, she found it offensive and responded with a track which shamed Daystar.
He in 2014 started a series called Fargo Fridays which were made to publish songs, interviews and similar casually. His songs Talk On Road and I’ll Be There were also written in the complexion of the series.
His first tour was called Lost Cause Tour and it was made in honour of his Lost Cause mixtape. It was meant to be published in Semptember, but it was two months late.
In 2015, he revealed his newest project, an EP he made with WeDidIt Records.
In June of the same year, he saud it’ll be called Cruel Intentions and he immediately afte revealing this posted a new song “ Karrueche”.
The intro single to the album was named “Say It”.
He later made a contract with two label houses: Mad Love Records and Interscope Records.
His two new mixtapes were made in 2015 and they gained a lot of attention since they were aimed towards a more serious fanbase now.
He soon was on a famous talkshow by Jimmy Kimmel and soon got much attention from other artists because of it.
In the spring of 2016, he said that he will be attending a tour called “The Level Up Tour” which was a collaboration between him and ASAP Ferg.
Interesting enough, he was supposed to be featured in the Freshmen class of 2016, but he didn’t want to because he felt like he was better than the other artists’ so he shouldn’t belong there with them.
His last works were the ones in July when he made a few remixes of famous songs by other hip-hop artists.
He later went on a tour called “I Told You”.
He had a girlfriend whow as from Jamaica and there were a lot of troubles when they broke up.
His girlfriend claimed she suffered abuse in every way she could’ve. She says that he made her feel pity in public whenever he had the chance to and she felt scared because she didn’t know what to do and how to get out of this.
She later posted pictures of their messages containing his threats to her.
He seemed to apologize after hitting her every time, but the hitting never stopped. She says that he would act like she is only his and can’t look at anyone else.
Other than that, Daystar never shared any information on his family or his dating life after that. Nobody has heard from the girl so we are assuming he payed her to be quiet, as the rumours have almost confirmed.
