Richard Walker, father of Ethan Walker, this afternoon: “Every lyric to 'The Race' is stained with my son’s blood. Every ‘free Tay-K’ T-shirt that was ever sold has my son’s blood on it.” https://t.co/O5xDmXEXPk— The FADER (@thefader) July 23, 2019
Last week, Soundcloud rapper Tay-K was found guilty of murder and he pled guilty to three counts of aggravated robbery.
Today he was sentenced to 55 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for the 2016 murder of 21 year old Ethan Walker that led to his big song "The Race".
He'll be eligible for parole once he's served half of that time.
He was also sentenced to 30, 13, and 13 years for his three counts of aggravated robbery, but all of the sentences will be served concurrently.
He avoided a capital murder charge in this case but he's still potentially facing one in another county for the death of an unrelated 23 year old man.
