He penned, “I was youthful and lacked any positive role models. I wasn’t even supposed to possess a firearm. I was never even suspected of discharging a firearm or causing harm to anyone. Unsure if you all are aware, but I was sentenced as an adult to 55 years in prison for a crime in which I wasn’t even the person who fired the weapon.”
Fans greatly appreciate how far he reflects on his life, even as he continues to ride. He posted a long note on Instagram, expressing this sentiment.
He wrote, “I’m sitting here thinking about all my fans. I know there are many things that my fans don’t know about me, and I haven’t directly spoken to them a lot. I’ve been here for 5 and a half years and I feel indebted to all of you. It’s still crazy to me that I never had a chance to live as an adult outside of the CPS system and the ‘justice’ system, where I’ve been locked up.”
While awaiting trial for his second murder case, Tay-K is currently serving time in Bexar County Adult Detention Center in San Antonio. He was indicted again in November of that year for the murder of Anthony Mark Saldivar, just months after his first guilty verdict in 2019. While on the run from authorities for three months following Walker’s death, Tay-K was also involved in another murder in San Antonio, Texas.
He mentioned that he led a life devoid of rules and filled with violence, but now he inspires hope in others through his positive attitude. Although his pre-prison music reflected his lawless existence, it has been certified platinum by the RIAA and his most successful single, “The Race,” peaked at No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100. Tay-K, a rising hip-hop star, was known for his legal troubles during that period.
He said, “I don’t want to recommend or promote violence, and I really love my fans”. “Even if it’s something small like writing a letter or making a phone call to keep them positively inspired regardless of my situation, that’s why I’m dedicated a lot of my time to using the success of my music to have a positive impact on other young artists.” “The movement is eternal.”
