Tay-K Gets 55 Years Over Home Invasion Death; Still Faces Capital Murder Trial

The "Race" rapper is finally going to trial for committing two murders.

(AllHipHop News) Arlington, Texas rapper Tay-K received his prison sentence today (July 23) for his role in the murder of another teen during a 2016 home invasion.

Even though he was not the gunman, the 19-year-old was sentenced to 55 years in prison and fined $10,000 for conspiring the rob and kill 21-year-old named Ethan Walker, of Fort Worth.

Tay-K, born Taymor McIntyre, must serve half of the prison sentence until he is eligible for probation.

The rapper was only 16-years-old at the time of Walker's murder.

He was arrested and was granted probation because of his age. But Tay-K eventually cut his ankle monitor and went on a murderous violent crime spree after his initial homicide.

Tay-K is also accused of killing a photographer in Arlington, Texas while he was on the run, and assaulting and robbing a 65-year-old man in another incident.

He was finally apprehended on June 30, 2017, when U.S. Marshals took him into custody in New Jersey.

The entire story went viral when Tay-K dropped a single called "The Race," which detailed his goal of escaping the cops.

The rapper still faces a death penalty trial for the murder of the photographer in 2017.
