Tory Lanez’s life behind bars may take some getting used to.
The rapper, 31, who is serving a 10-year-sentence for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020, has a pretty strict regimen to follow at the North Kern State Prison in Delano, California.
According to TMZ, the Hurts Me artist is being kept in Administrative Segregation at the facility due to his being a high-profile inmate.
A source familiar with procedures at the prison told the outlet that Tory, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, is living a rather solitary existence.
He has his own cell, but must submit to frequent checks from the guards.

Each time the Jerry Sprunger artist leaves the cell, he must be handcuffed.
That includes trips to the shower and to the yard.
The insider revealed when the Talk to Me rapper wants to shower, he is escorted there by guards.
If he wants some outdoor time, he is the only one in the area.
Prison food consists of some pretty cheap, unhealthy fare.
Breakfast could dish up servings of beef hash, hard-boiled eggs, hot cereal, milk and coffee.
Lunch might include peanut butter crackers, bologna or cheese sandwiches and sugar-free drinks.
Dinner isn’t much better. The menu has so far included hot link sausages, veggies, coleslaw, red beans, rolls and canned fruit.

TMZ reported that Tory’s stay at the North Kern facility will be a short one. He was moved there to determine where he should spend the rest of his sentence.
The Canadian artist has appealed his conviction on assault with a semiautomatic firearm, carrying a loaded unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharge of a firearm with gross negligence, and was hoping to be free on bail while the appeal worked its way through the courts.
The judge has denied that request.

‘I am in such an amazing headspace,’ she told Complex.
‘I’m making music that I really, really love. I’m making music that I’m not about to have to fight with anybody about… I’m so excited because it’s just turning the page into this new chapter of my life and I feel like the Hotties are gonna be so excited to hear it.’
