The Rap genre heavily features topics related to crime and some rappers seem to find it hard to stay out of trouble.
The youngest on the list, Tay-K was born in California and is best known for his track “The Race”. His Father was behind bars for a long time during his childhood.
Tamor Travon McIntyre known as Tay-K was sentenced to 55 years behind bars after he was convicted for the murder of 21-year-old Ethan Walker, He was also involved in the murder of a female University of Texas student, it was hard for him to stay out of trouble since his parents were members of the Crips.
Santana Sage was the man who shot the girl and he was sentenced to 44 years in prison. Tay-K was not guilty of the crime but he was there when it happened. In 2016 two female accomplices were in a room and they distracted a victim and let Tay-K and other criminals in and they proceeded with robbing and killed a man named Walker. Tay-K was then placed on house arrest.
While on house arrest for this crime he cut off the ankle bracelet and released a hit song “The Race”. He was later arrested and brought back to Texas to face the trial for the murder of Walker.
He is not officially sentenced for the murder of Saldavar a photographer that the rapper allegedly shot in a parking lot after he allegedly tried to steal his equipment and this could cause more time to be added to his sentence.
He might be found guilty for armed robbery, capital murder for the killing of Saldavor as well.
Prosecutors use lyrics from “The Race” to strengthen the case and convict the rapper and found him guilty of murder and aggravated robbery.
He will be eligible for parole after 28 years, but time might be added for the other murder.
Casanova Facing Life in Prison
Casanova was born in Brooklyn, New York, and he is now facing life in prison. He was raised by a Panamanian mother and a Jamaican father. Casanova was in a high profile showdown with 6ix-9ine and they found a way to squash the beef publicly after that.
He is a school drop-out and he did his best to stay out of prison however that tuned out to not be the case. He was arrested at the age of 18 as he was involved in gangs from an early age.
He joined the group “Untouchable Guerilla Stone Nation” at one point and this caused gangster image and rep to increase.
On December 1, 2020 prosecutors sent out a warrant for his arrest and he surrendered the following day. He is now facing life in prison and the Covid-19 virus is making it harder to get things done so that cases can be sorted out.
It is alleged that he was in a gang from a young age and that caused him to be involved in drug trafficking, fraud, murders and other criminal activities.
Tekashi 6ix9ine still earlier snitched and named Casanova as a member of the Bloods after the beef ended. It is still unclear what the rapper was convicted for, it is not known if it was only 6ix9ine’s testimony that caused him to be locked up.
If he doesn’t snitch like 6ix9ine it will be hard for him to get out of prison. It is unlikely that he will do that and he might be there for a long time.
