Tay-K Pleads For 'Chance At Adulthood' From Behind Bars

Tay-K Pleads For ‘Chance At Adulthood’ As He Continues Serving Out 55-Year Prison Sentence

As Tay-K remains behind bars, he’s speaking on how he believes his situation would be different if he were “a lil white kid.”

Tay-K Says He Needs A Chance To Do Right

On Thursday, the rapper spoke on the matter through a series of tweets, the first of which read, “I really just need 1 chance @ adulthood.”

He proceeded to share that he believes his situation would’ve been different if he were white. Specifically, he thinks the courts would’ve offered him “rehabilitation and a 2nd (1st) chance at adulthood” rather than sentencing him to 55 years.

The “Murder She Wrote” rapper then referenced one of his codefendants—a 16-year-old “white girl” who “ended up getting 10 years of probation without no deal”—to prove his point.

The Rapper Is Set To Be In Prison For Quite Some Time

Back in 2016, a then-16-year-old Tay-K faced serious charges after participating in a robbery that ended with the death of a 21-year-old man named Ethan Walker. After spending some time at a juvenile detention facility, Tay-K was ultimately placed on house arrest as he awaited a certification hearing, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Notably, Tay-K ultimately cut his ankle monitor off and proceeded to go on the run for about three months. During this time, he released his beloved “The Race” track, which detailed the experience through an iconic verse: “F**k a beat, I was tryna beat a case / But I ain’t beat that case, so b***h I did the race!”

After being apprehended up in New Jersey, the track blew up, and the rapper gained a devoted following. However, Tay-K was ultimately found guilty of murder, as well as three aggravated robbery charges. As a result, he was sentenced to 55 years behind bars.

However, this isn’t the end of his legal troubles, as KSAT reports that he was indicted on murder charges for a killing that went down while he was on the run.

What are your thoughts on Tay-K’s tweets, and you share similar sentiments regarding the situation?
