King Yella is not rocking with Tay-K for beating up an old man. Yella took to IG to diss the “Megaman” rapper for his alleged crime.
“Y’all think that s**t gangster? Y’all talking about he beat up an old man and robbed him,” Yella said. “Get y’all clown ass on. Y’all think that s**t cool, huh?
Yella continued, “Y’all d**k sucking Tay-K. He a little ass boy. He beat up an old man and robbed him. That make you gangster? N****s acting like n****s so gangster. Look at the n****s he have in his videos. N****S really lame.”
Tay-K, whose real name is Taymor Travon McIntyre, is accused of brutally beating an elderly man in Arlington, TX. Skip Pepe, 65, was attacked near his home Thursday, May 25 in broad daylight after 11 a.m., NBC 5 reports.
Pepe was walking through the Cravens Park when Tay-K allegedly approached him from behind.
“I walk like six, seven miles a day, four, five days a week,” Pepe told NBC 5. “And I hear just behind me a faint voice, ‘Give me your wallet.’”
“I looked over, and sure enough, he’s got a gun pointed at me toward my head,” Pepe said.
Pepe told authorities that Tay-K – wearing a gray or white shirt and unknown color basketball shorts – was armed with a small snub-nosed black revolver.
Pepe refused to hand over his wallet and was knocked unconscious by the robber, Star-Telegram reports.
“The whole time he had his arm extended and holding the gun sideways like that, saying, ‘Give me your wallet,’” he remembered.
Pepe identified Tay-K in a photo lineup for detectives. He again identified the rapper during an interview with NBC.
“Oh yeah,” Pepe said when shown McIntyre’s photo. “That’s the one who pulled the gun on me and beat me.”
Pepe says he’ll never forget Tay-K’s face.
“Oh, I’ll never forget, I’ll never forget his face,” said victim Skip Pepe. “He looks like an all-American high school kid.”
Pepe said he was struck at how young and clean-cut McIntyre looked.
“Looks can be very, very deceiving,” Pepe said. “And he’s very deceiving.”
Pepe suffered serious injuries from the assault, including three fractured ribs, a brain bleed, and numerous cuts and scrapes.
Tay-K, who is charged with capital murder, was on the run for several months after cutting off his ankle monitor in March. He was extradited to Fort Worth, Texas after U.S. Marshals captured him on Friday, June 30 in New Jersey.
Tay-K was booked into Tarrant County Jail on Thursday afternoon, according to the Star-Telegram.
Tay-K was arrested for the murder of 21-year-old Ethan Walker during a home invasion robbery in Mansfield, TX. He was one of seven people charged in connection with the July 26, 2016 robbery and slaying.
Tay-K is a suspect in another murder in San Antonio after fleeing house arrest, the Star-Telegram reports.
Tay-K grew in popularity after the release of his music video for song “The Race.”
