Notorious rapper freed after five years
After being incarcerated back in 2017, the notorious rapper Tay K has been released on parole. The Texas-based rapper walked out of Bexar County Adult Detention Center last Saturday. Tay K made the following statement on his Twitter account, “I recognize and deeply regret that my immature decisions as a teenager would lead to something like this that I can’t take back.”
The artist, whose legal name is Taymor Travon McIntyre, was convicted on charges of murder and three counts of aggravated robbery. Tay K’s attorneys said that Taymor will not serve any more time in prison in exchange for a plea deal. Instead, he will now need to complete 300 hours of community service and check in with a parole officer every month.
Tay K is most known for his hit album Santana World, which he recorded while a nationwide manhunt was looking for him. His hit song from that album “The Race” reached number 44 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and got certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) in January 2018. Tay K’s management team would release his debut album, Santana World, one month after his arrest on June 30, 2017.
Tay K states that with this once-in-a-lifetime chance, he will make sure to give back to his community and educate young people that being involved in gangs will only lead to violence and destruction. It’s great to see people try to help the youth and change for the better after living lives that have only affected people negatively for so long.
Happy April Fool's Day!🦂
