Rapper Tay-K, famous for last year’s surprise hit “The Race,” has been denied bond in relation to his upcoming capital murder case. The Star-Telegram reports that State District Judge Wayne Salvant has expressed concern that the 17-year-old rapper has been “glorified” within the music industry and cited Tay-K’s lyrics from “The Race.”
Back in July 2016, Tay-K, then 16, was allegedly involved in a home invasion and murder of Ethan Walker. The rapper soon went on the run afterward, cutting off his ankle monitor before being arrested in New Jersey. He’s also been connected to another fatal shooting in San Antonio in April of last year as well as a robbery last May.
He will stand trial as an adult.
