Rapper Tay-K has rejected a plea deal and has opted to take his second murder case to trial.

The rapper, real name Taymor Travon McIntyre, will be back in court next month to be given a start date for the trial.

He is accused of the murder of 23-year-old Mark Anthony Saldivar while he was on the run. He was sentenced to 55 years behind bars for another robbery and murder.

The rapper was a minor at the time he was locked up and has been begging for a second chance at life.

“I’ve been locked up and in and out of the ‘justice’ and CPS system for my whole life,” he wrote last April. “Not sure if y’all know, but I got sentenced as an adult to 55 years in prison for a crime where I wasn’t even the shooter, I wasn’t even alleged to have a gun. I was never even suspected to have pulled a trigger or hurt anyone. I was young and didn’t have no positive figures around. Now that I’m older, I know how important focusing on leading by example is. I love my fans and I don’t want anyone to think I’m promoting or really recommending violence.”
