Tay-K’s hit song “The Race” has been certified platinum and hit the Top 50 of the Hot 100 since it was released. But the rapper’s legal issues go back to before the song achieved so much success. The day it was released he was already on the run from U.S. Marshals. He was ultimately found guilty in a murder trial that landed him a 55-year sentence behind bars.

He’s currently still awaiting a trial for that charge which could significantly complicate his legal matters.
