Tory Lanez’s mugshot has been released after the rapper was officially relocated to a state prison to begin serving his 10-year sentence. As The Shade Room previously reported, Lanez was found guilty of three charges in relation to the 2020 assault of Megan Thee Stallion in December.
On August 8, the rapper received his sentencing from Judge David Herriford.
Most recently, Lanez recently filed a motion to receive bail as he works to appeal the 10-year prison sentence. However, the rapper’s motion was denied by Judge Herriford on September 14.

More Details Regarding The Rapper’s Prison Transfer & Credit For Time Served
According to information confirmed by The Shade Room’s Senior Editor, Jadriena Solomon, Lanez has been transferred to North Kern State Prison. The facility is located in Delano, California. Legal reporter Meghann Cuniff adds that Delano is located “35 miles north of Bakersfield.”
According to the California Department of Correction and Rehabilitation Inmate records, Lanez was transferred to the facility on Tuesday, September 19. The rapper’s CDCR Number is listed as “BW0168.”
Additionally, Cuniff reports that Lanez was left the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department at 10:22 a.m. on Tuesday.
PrisonPro reports that North Kern State Prison doubles as a “reception center” and “medium to minimum custody facility.” Additionally, the facility serves as a “hub” for housing inmates “transported over a long distance through California.”
Furthermore, the prison is reportedly responsible for “diagnosing and classifying” incoming inmates. It reportedly does so by analyzing inmates’ “mental and physical health.”
The process can reportedly take up to 90 days. However, this allows the inmate to be “moved to a new, more permanent facility.” The new facility can reportedly “better” suit an inmate’s “rehabilitation needs.”
According to an exclusive report from The Messenger, the rapper is expected to spend three to six months at the facility. Then, he will reportedly be transferred to a “long-term facility” to serve the remainder of his sentence.

A Brief Look Back On Tory’s Denied Bail Motion & Presumed Path Forward
As The Shade Room previously reported, Lanez will receive a credit of 305 days served toward his prison sentence. The Messenger notes that the rapper was previously detained at Los Angeles County Jail.
According to a report published Wednesday by Cuniff, the rapper’s time served credit has presumably been increased to 353 days since his sentencing on August 8.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Lanez will continue to work on appealing his prison sentence during his time incarcerated. The rapper’s “notice of appeal” was reportedly received by the “California Courts of Appeal’s 2nd District in Los Angeles” on August 10.
However, as previously noted by Cuniff, the appellate process can take years. Additionally, Lanez’s appeal proceedings may not begin until 2024.
We must note that Judge David Herriford remains confident in his sentencing of Lanez. At the rapper’s bail hearing last week, the judge reportedly explained that “no errors” were made in his sentencing.
Despite this, Lanez maintains his innocence in the case’s conviction.
