orn and raised in Toronto, with a six-year pitstop as a toddler in ATL, Yung Tory is one of the few artist to combine the rap and rasta lifestyles. A vegan since birth, Yung Tory is a committed Rastafarian, strictly obeying his religious diet and imbuing his life and music with the religion’s spiritual tradition. Yung Tory steeped himself in music from a young age, making his first music as a toddler with a karaoke machine.
Yung Tory paid attention to other successful artists such Lil Wayne, Dipset, 50 Cent, and others for inspiration to become a rapper. Early in 2017, Tory struck gold with “Water,” his first hit, which has over 1.6 million views on YouTube and featured a remix with an appearance from Sosamann.
With the success of “Water,” Tory caught the ear of Lil Durk, who promptly signed the young artist to his Only The Family label and hopped on a remix of “Run It Up,” which appeared on Tory’s Free Dope mixtape, which dropped in 2016. Riding the wave of his aquatic-themed hit (“I’m the most hydrated artist,” says Tory. “I’m drippy.”), Yung Tory is ready to win new fans and embrace the rock star lifestyle. “I’m about positive vibes only,” says Tory. “I took negativity and I turned it into positivity. It’s a way of life.”
