Southern rap artists are running the game now. Tay-K and NBA Youngboy are two of the more popular artists on the rise right now.
NBA Youngboy wants fans to know he is not in competition with the jailed rapper who is currently facing two charges of capital murder in addition to aggravated robbery.
Youngboy wrote on Twitter, “I said f**k a race in free dude in you n****s just gotta say something f**k the media we killing s**t in real life #onmysons #NBA #GANG
He added, “F**k #TheRace I ain’t in competition #freeshawty though.”
Fans probably won’t be seeing an NBA Youngboy and Tay-K collaboration any time soon.
Tay-K’s legal situation isn’t looking to good after San Antonio police released surveillance footage of him driving away from the scene of murder in the parking lot of a Chik-fil-A restaurant in Bexar County.
Tay-K, whose real name is Taymor McIntyre, is a suspect in an April 23 shooting that killed 23-year-old Mark Anthony Saldivar, according to a police report by obtained by San Antonio Express-News. The fatal shooting – captured on surveillance – reportedly occurred at a North Side Chik-fil-A at 27 Northeast Loop 410.
Witnesses reportedly saw three people arguing in the back of a black SUV on the Loop 410 access road and someone in the front passenger seat pointed a gun at Saldivar, according to the police report. Saldivar got out of the car and started yelling for help, then stood in front of the SUV. The driver accelerated at Saldivar, but Saldivar held onto the SUV as it swerved, then jumped onto the vehicle after it pulled into the Chik-fil-A parking lot and began kicking the windshield.
The front passenger stepped out of the car, shot Saldivar once, and the four occupants, which included Tay-K, drove off. The identities of the other three suspects are not known at this time.
Police found Saldivar’s body in the restaurant’s parking lot with loose marijuana in his mouth and a bag of the drug underneath him.
Tay-K is accused of being involved in the crime while on the run. Tay-K was placed on house arrest for his role in a deadly home invasion robbery in July 2016. He cut off his ankle monitor in March and remained a fugitive until he was finally captured in late June in New Jersey.
Tay-K can face a possible death penalty for that charge as well.
Tay-K has yet to be officially charged in that case. The “The Race” rapper, however, has been officially certified to stand trial as an adult on charges of capital murder and aggravated robbery.
