“F**k a beat, I was tryna beat a case. But I ain’t beat that case, b***h I did the race,” is Tay-K’s first words in his hit single “The Race.” The 17-year-old rapper from Dallas, speaking his truth through the music after having an on-going murder case.
Taymor “Tay-K” McIntyre, is charged with capital murder for a home invasion back in 2016. The young growing rapper was in court to determine if he would be tried as an adult although the incident happened while he was 16.
Unfortunately, the hearing didn’t work in his favor. According to Complex, one of the rapper’s lawyers, M. Trent Loftin, issued a statement. “The judge ruled that his case should be moved to the adult court based on his age (and the fact that the juvenile court will lack jurisdiction soon),” it read.
The judge was very clear to tell Mr. McIntyre on the record that this decision has no bearing whatsoever of his guilt/innocence in this case. Mr. McIntyre continued to remain upbeat after this hearing.
James McMillan, a popular entertainment lawyer, is also representing Tay-K. According to the New York Times, McMillan is in discussion with record labels and music publishers whose backing could potentially help with legal fees.
Do we think the judge’s decision to try him as an adult is fair?
