Tay-K Pens Open Letter From Prison

Lyndon Abioye |

Incarcerated rapper Tay-K penned a touching letter from behind bars reflecting on his 55-year prison sentence and his time in prison.

“I’ve been here for 51/2 years now and I feel indebted to y’all for going so crazy behind me. It’s still crazy to me that I never had a chance to live outside as an adult,” he wrote in the letter shared to Instagram.

Tay-K denies he pulled the trigger or hurt anyone.

“I’ve been locked up and in and out of the ‘justice’ and CPS system for my whole life,” he continued. “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.”

Despite not pulling the trigger, one of his co-defendant’s, a 16-year-old white female, who was given 10 years probation, has already been released from prison.
