Just days after being handed down a 55-year prison sentence for his role in a 2016 home invasion that led to a 21-year-old man being murdered, rapper Tay-K has filed to appeal his conviction and subsequent sentencing. 

According to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, Tay-K, real name Taymor McIntyre, is appealing his sentence citing the basis of the evidence used against him, namely his hit song "The Race." The music video and a print out of the lyrics were given to the jury before deliberation. It is unknown whether that factored into the eventual verdict.
