Say it….says Tory

Yes! You have every right to ask me where have I been living!!! Only heard of this dude today and I. AM. OBSESSED….and you know what happens when I get obsessed… is it his flow? His voice? Maybe it’s his demeanor, I don’t know!

Went on a frenzy and this is what I found.#ThankMeLater (and how ironic because he totes has the sound of an OVO artist.

Daystar Peterson AKA Tory Lanez

If anybody knows about “the struggle” , it would be Daystar Peterson (How unique is his name!) Born July 27th 1992 to Sonstar and Luella Peterson. This bright star started rapping at the tender age of 9 in the streets of Brampton and lost his mom some time after 😦

Spending some of his teen years as a street child,he learnt not to take anything for granted. Self-taught singer from the age of 16, he knew this is what he wanted to do…and he clearly is doooing it. His swag on fleek, talent is raving…Daystar clearly is not letting anybody dull his sparkle and he shouldn’t!!!

Notorious BIG is his biggest inspiration,  he’s aparently been in the industry for some time:

● 2009-13 he was signed to Time is money.
2014- present signed to Interscope.

He’s released a couple of mixtapes since ’09 with the latest being “lost cause” and another, “cruel intentions”. He’s scheduled to release his debut album some time next year with “Say it” being one of his singles.

Annnnnddddd….(as if the above isnt enough to get our jaws dropping) The brother is ALSO a fashion designer and owns his own store…Forever umbrella…! He tells us that chain stores are coming soon…so watch out for that.#Fellaz

It’s clear that Tory Lanez is here to stay. The dude is talented and hard working! Recipe for success!

So if you’re slow like me and haven’t heard of him or his music…. checkout the links below!

Say it:

Peace. Love and happiness

Be safe ya’ll

“The rose that grew from concrete”

Yeaaapp!!!! Tupac Amaru Shakur…a legend of note.

13.09.2015 marked his 19 year death anniversary and inspired this post much.


For those of you who don’t know much about the rapper, dancer, actor, legend himself, which I seriously doubt because I mean like who doesn’t know this dude???? …here’s some brief info on him!

Born to Afeni Shakur back in 1971 on June the 16th ( yeap on youth day) Tupac is today known as a hip hop legend whose lyrics were often relating to and inspired by growing up amid hardships, violence, racism, life in the ghetto and other social problems.

MC New York ( a name he went by when he 1st started out) soon became popular and him having sold over 75 million albums world wide has earned him his “legend” title. 

To many Pac was an inspiration. Back in his day, to the boys in the hood’s around the world and even to today’s “best” artists like Cole and Kendrick. Tupac ‘s work spoke truth…and that’s something that doesn’t ever “go out of fashion”

I personally am a huge fan. I remember being very little…6 or 7 maybe and back then there were ” cassette players” and I remember watching my dad ” pause ” and “play” his songs over and over trying to get the lyrics down to paper…and being the sponge and super super curious child I was…I picked up on those lyrics too… Yeap, play that dear mama track and I can rap every word down to the last pause!

This soon became the norm and back then if you were a girl that could rap to 2pac …lol you earned your right to chill with the boys!!! But as I grew older…having experienced life’s curve balls and having bare witness to a series of traumatic events… 2pac’s lyrics became more than just a pass to the cool kids club… it became my go-to place…like “somebody gets me” …

I would often play “Keep your head up” and “heaven ain’t hard to find” as a means of motivations and when I needed to vent I would play “Hit em up” and rap those words with so much conviction…but after I was done…I was good. And till today, my play list still includes his music and this is still the way I vent to calm down and is still my go-to place.

Whilst there are many speculations around 2pac having being killed back in 1996 and him hiding… if ever you needed to know what true Art is… look at his work. His poetry. His movies…. the cutting truth beneath it all. He is Art personified!


That rose he sure was….long live the rose that grew from concrete…he is living vicariously through each of us!

May your soul rest in peace Pac….much love!
