Career of Tay-K

Tay-K managed to avoid getting into serious trouble and began raping in 2015. He joined a collective called 'The Daytona Boyz' along with rappers Santana Sage and Pimpyz and the group would perform at parties and clubs to build their profile in the Local Arlington rap scene. They built a small local follower and began to build on their popularity by working on the full-length tracks they produced at home. The quality of their music was not the highest, but for his smooth flow and lyrics that reflected his real life on the streets, Tay-K, in particular, began to be noticed.

Tay-K 's Career

Tay-K started setting up tracks on Soundcloud with tracks such as the auto-tuned 'Sly Cooper' and 'Biff Tannen' and received a fair amount of positive local attention.

Unfortunately, Shawn Cotton received so many messages that he missed the message and was unaware of Tay-K's rising profile until late 2016 when Tay-K's track 'Megaman' was gaining traction. Within a few months 'Megaman' had notched up a few hundred thousand plays on Soundcloud and he was already generating a fair amount of attention, especially in the local Arlington Rap scene, but unfortunately, by then T-Kay had already got himself into some serious trouble with the law.


Twenty-one-year-old Ethan Walker was shot and killed on July 26, 2016, during a home invasion and robbery at his home in Mansfield, Texas, and was charged with the violent slaughter along with six others. Tay-K, who was only 16 at the time and place under house arrest until the certification hearings were held. But before hearing he fled to San Antonio, Texas by removing an ankle monitor. Then he was captured again on 30 June 2017 by the US Marshall Service in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He was then transferred to an adult jail in July 2017. Again the second murder charge was put unto him in September 2017. He is been currently hold on a bail of $500,000 though, in February 2018, the bail was set to $0.
