Incarcerated rapper Tay K shares updates from behind bars
Tay K turned 21 on Wednesday (June 16), and as he had promised earlier on, the rapper answered several fan questions during a jail call that aired on Instagram live.
“My new shit crazy,” he told Carl LeGrett, who was reading questions in the comments to Tay. “I got tattoos on my hand, all my fingers is like skeleton fingers now! And I got a spider web on my hand,” he added, before talking about “The Race” going platinum.

“Man I don’t even wanna talk about ‘The Race,’” he continued. “It’s cool. That’s good. That’s good, I’m happy about that. I wanna make new music, I wanna drop new shit.”
The Santana World rapper then shared some encouraging news, revealing that there are possibilities of being released on an appeal bond. “That’s looking good, too. You know, all the coming home situation and shit, I know a lot of people want to know about that,” he said. “My case on appeal right now, there’s still hope and shit. There’s definitely still a chance for me to come home on an appeal bond. … That’s what I want to happen.”
Tay K, born Taymor Travon McIntyre, is serving 55 years in prison after he was convicted of murder in 2019. After a manhunt that led to the then teenage Tay going viral with “The Race,” the Texas native was arrested in 2017 on double homicide amongst other charges.
