Lil Uzi Vert is rocking with controversial rapper Tay-K. Uzi filmed himself in traffic rocking out to Tay-K’s “The Race.”
Tay-K sparked controversy after releasing his “The Race” music video upon his arrest for capital murder. In the visual, Tay-K could be seen lighting a blunt next to his wanted poster.
Tay-K became a fugitive after cutting off his ankle monitor in March. Tay-K was on the run for several months before U.S. Marshalls captured him on Friday, June 30 in New Jersey.
Tay-K displayed even more boldness after rocking out to his “The Race” song in traffic while he was on the run in newly surfaced footage.
Tay won’t be doing “The Race” any time soon after a judge ended his house arrest stipulations.
Tay-K was initially 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.
A judge ordered the 17-year-old rapper to be held in adult jail until he is certified as an adult in the Mansfield case. Tay-K was booked into Tarrant County Jail on Thursday afternoon, according to the Star-Telegram.
Tay-K is a suspect in another murder in San Antonio after fleeing house arrest, the Star-Telegram reports. He is also accused of beating and robbing a 65-year-old man in Arlington’s Craven Park.
