There’s something incredibly touching about the bond between father and son, and it seems that no one knows this better than Tory Lanez.
Amidst the tumultuous times, the rapper has reportedly been spending quality time with his 6-year-old son, Kai, during back-to-back prison visits.
Tory Lanez Reunites With Son In Prison
Lanez has been utilizing the visitation rights granted to him at California Correctional Institution Tehachapi to seemingly ensure he remains a consistent presence in his son’s life.
These visits have reportedly become a regular occurrence, with Kai making two recent trips to the prison to spend time with his dad.
According to TMZ, the youngster recently saw the ‘Temperature Rising’ artist on two weekends in a row, and they didn’t have to communicate through a glass either.

The pair were allowed to sit at a table together on both days of the weekend, with each session lasting around 4-5 hours, sources tell the publication.
Lanez and his son reportedly drew pictures together as well as play board games and eat food from the vending machine.
Further details of their interaction remain private, but one can imagine that the pair tried to create some sort of normalcy under somewhat unusual circumstances.
The prison walls may confine Lanez physically, but they certainly haven’t been able to contain the love he holds for his child.
The news outlet reports that the Canadian was “happy” to get some physical interaction with Kai, as he couldn’t spend time with his offspring during the holidays.
Tory Lanez’s 10-Year Sentence In The Meg Thee Stallion Shooting Case
The six-year-old acted as his dad’s support system during Lanez’s trial in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting case in August 2023.
The legal ordeal stemmed from an incident in July 2020, when Lanez was alleged to have shot Stallion in the foot following a dispute as they left Kylie Jenner‘s home.
The court found Lanez guilty of all three charges, shooting the victim by negligently discharging a gun, illegally possessing a firearm, and committing assault with a firearm. The judge consequently sentenced him to 10 years in prison without the possibility of parole, per ABC News.
Lanez has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence since the charges were first filed against him.
After receiving his sentence, Lanez continued to assert that the media was presenting an unbalanced and misleading narrative surrounding the trial.
In a series of social media posts and interviews, he has sought to clarify some things, stating that he believes the truth will ultimately prevail.
“I have never let a hard time intimidate me,” he wrote in an Instagram Story post. “I will never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will.”
“I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top,” Lanez continued. “This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious. Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”
