Tay-K is currently in jail serving a 55 year prison sentence after being found guilty of murder in the 2016 killing of Ethan Walker.

"The Race" rapper began his rant saying "I wanna apologize to all my fans and supporters for letting my management and label convince me that it wouldn’t be a good decision to speak out against the way the media makes me look and the complete lies they spread," he tweeted.

He continued "But I’m gonna make sure the truth about my life and my character gets out with or without management or a label. And whoever don’t like it f**k you."

"The way the media inaccurately portrays me has affected my life directly," Tay-K added.

The 19-year-old rapper continued "So instead of waiting on my 'team' to get the bright idea to speak up on my behalf, things will be done differently."

"Of course, I’m not perfect or nothing, but I’m most definitely not this monster that they try to portray me as. with that being said, I also apologize for the way I may have presented myself, I was young and inconsiderate."

As well as his 55-year sentence, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for one count of aggravated robbery and given an additional two 13-year sentences for two other counts of the same crime.

Tay-K was also fined $21,000. However, Tay-k is appealing his 55 year prison sentence.
