Texas rapper Tay-K has been in prison to 55 years for murder.

The 19-year-old, whose official name is Taymor McIntyre, was charged in the 2016 death of 21-year-old Ethan Walker, who was gunshot and murdered in his own Mansfield, Texas, home during a robbery.

According to the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office, McIntyre was also condemned to 30 years in prison for one count of goaded robbery and 13 years each for two other counts of aggravated robbery, in addition to $21,000 in penalties Tuesday.
