Tory Lanez has been convicted of a myriad of charges, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting support from some of his high-profile friends.
In a TikTok video posted on Friday (June 16), Kylie Jenner can be seen in her car, vibing along to what appears to be an unreleased track from the Canadian rapper/singer.
Though she didn’t drop the name of the song, or when it would be released, it includes lyrics such as: “You only have the time of your life when I’m not around.”

While Tory Lanez may be getting a much-coveted Kardashian boost for promotional purposes, he still can’t stop the reach of the long arm of the law — even if sentencing in his Megan Thee Stallion case has been delayed, yet again.
On Tuesday (June 13), the disgraced rapper’s sentencing was delayed at the last minute at the request of the rapper’s legal counsel, who now have until August 1 to submit a sentencing recommendation ahead of a new sentencing date of August 7, according to reporter Meghann Cuniff.
Cuniff additionally reported that Lanez did briefly appear in court, donning an orange jumpsuit and black cap.
“Asked after court if he had a message for Megan Thee Stallion, Deputy District Attorney Alex Bott said, ‘We just appreciate her being as strong as she is, and this is going to be over very soon,’” Cuniff added, sharing a video of her talking to Bott.
The update comes after Tory Lanez’s request to have Judge Herriford disqualified from the trial was denied. HipHopDX obtained a copy of the order striking the statement of disqualification, which was originally filed on May 9 but was officially served on all parties — including Lanez and his attorneys — on June 8.
Judge David Herriford made clear that there were “no facts or circumstances which would require my disqualification or recusal in this case.”
This marks the third time Lanez’s sentencing date has been delayed. It was initially set for January 2, roughly a month after he was found guilty of shooting Megan in the feet during a drunken dispute in the Hollywood Hills in July 2020. However, a judge delayed the sentencing until February 28 due to Lanez changing legal counsel.
When February 28 rolled around, the date was pushed back even further, as the Canadian rapper filed a motion for a new trial, which was ultimately denied.
