The murder trial for rapper Tay-K has finally concluded.

Tay-K was sentenced to 55 years in prison for his role in a 2016 murder.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that Taymor McIntyre known professionally at Tay-K received a 30-year prison sentence for aggravated robbery as well as two more 13-year sentences for aggravated robbery.

The 19-year-old will serve all three sentences concurrently. He has also been ordered to pay $21,000 in fines. Last Friday the young rapper was convicted of murdering 21-year-old Ethan Walker during a home invasion robbery. He was just 16 at the time of the crime.

Between the time of his arrest and sentencing Tay-K gained notoriety for his track “The Race” that talks about hiding from the police, “I ain’t beat that case, b**** I did the race”. There has been talk that the lyrics from the song may have helped with his indictment. McIntyre is still facing capital murder charges as well. He posted the photo below while incarcerated last August.
