A Los Angeles jury found Tory Lanez guilty of all charges regarding his involvement with rap star Megan Thee Stallion.
On Friday, AP reported that Lanez, born Daystar Peterson, denied his part in the series of violent events toward the talented Houston rapper– but jurors, consisting of seven women and five men, had other plans. After a seven-hour deliberation, they dropped the guilty verdict and the punk ass “Feels” rapper was taken into police custody. He didn’t pass go or collect $200. The “Say It” rapper was charged with assault with a semi-automatic weapon, having an unregistered gun in his car and gross negligence by discharging a firearm. Lanez could face a max of almost 23 years in prison for the crimes, and he faces deportation back to his native Canada.
After the verdict, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón told Megan Thee Stallion that he applauded her “courage.”
“You showed incredible courage and vulnerability with your testimony despite repeated and grotesque attacks that you did not deserve,” he said. “You faced unjust and despicable scrutiny that no woman should ever face, and you have been an inspiration to others across LA County and the nation.”
Megan Thee Stallion’s attorney Alex Spiro, said, “The jury got it right. I am thankful there is justice for Meg.”
As the “Savage” emcee celebrated her long-awaited legal victory, Lanez’s father had choice words for the district attorney and also claimed that “God does not fail.”

His son shot someone. He needs to direct that energy to his son. Maybe he would’ve turned out a better man than a wuss who assaults women.
