McIntyre’s family has ties to the Crips street gang, and his father, Kevin Beverly, who was born in Compton and later moved to Hampton, Virginia, was formerly a member of the Blocc Compton Crips street gang in Compton.

McIntyre started his rap career as part of the rap group Daytona Boyz alongside rappers Pimpyz and Santana Sage. The group released their first track "Drift" on audio distribution platform SoundCloud in December 2014. The group released a series of songs, barely getting attention as they performed at various parties attempting to create a presence in the local rap scenes.
McIntyre released his first solo song in mid-2015 titled "BIFF XANNEN" on his Soundcloud account. The song, along with Sly Cooper which was released in November 2015, garnered local attention within the Arlington rap scene. McIntyre's song "Megaman" was released on his SoundCloud on March 16, 2016 and along with several other songs McIntyre released, became popular after he was arrested on capital murder charges.
McIntyre released several songs while on the run from the police, including "The Race" which was recorded during McIntyre's stay in New Jersey and the music video was released on YouTube two weeks before his capture. "The Race" debuted at number 70 on the US Billboard Hot 100 after a large hashtag campaign pursuing the release of McIntyre using the hashtag "#FREETAYK" "The Race" peaked at 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and its video has over 100 million views on YouTube. "The Race" has been remixed by numerous artists including Tyga, Lil Yachty, Fetty Wap and 21 Savage.
While incarcerated, McIntyre released the mixtape #SantanaWorld. WorldStarHipHop released "Coolin" on September 14, 2017 McIntyre's official twitter account tweeted that the version released by WorldStarHipHop was a leak and not official saying " have something major in store."
On December 14, 2017, McIntyre re-released his mixtape #SantanaWorld with a remix of his single 'The Race' featuring 21 Savage and Young Nudy. The mixtape was released with 88 Classic, an imprint under RCA Records, a division of Sony Music. "The Race" was certified platinum by the RIAA on January 19, 2018. On February 2, 2017, McIntyre's official twitter account tweeted two pictures of McIntyre, the time he had been seen since May 2017. The following day, the song "After You" was released on McIntyre's SoundCloud account.
It was revealed in March 2018 that McIntyre had earned around $600,000 to $700,000 in a record deal with Classic 88.Legal issues
McIntyre has a history of legal troubles. The first reported case of McIntyre and his criminal interactions was when he was a witness to the shooting of 20-year-old Sara Mutschlechner by Daytona Boyz member Erick Johnson also known by his stage name Santana Sage. McIntyre and Johnson had attended the same party as Mutschlechner, not interacting until they had left. Johnson was driving through Denton when his black SUV pulled up along Mutschlechner's Sedan. McIntyre and other Daytona Boyz member Pimpyz began to call out to Mutschlechner's Sedan which led to a man rolling a window down and confronting them. Johnson then threatened to shoot the male which led to Mutschlechner driving away. The SUV chased Mutschlechner and Johnson then fired two shots, one entering Mutschlechner's head. Johnson confessed and McIntyre was not charged in the case. Johnson was sentenced to 44 years in prison.
McIntyre and six other people were arrested in July 2016 on capital murder charges. On July 26, 2016, Megan Holt and Ariana Bharrat were allegedly part of a plan alongside McIntyre and friends to burgle 21 year old Ethan Walker. Allegedly, the pair planned to seduce Walker and then let the gunmen into the house where they were to steal drugs and money from him before leaving. One of the pair unlocked the door and the gunmen then proceeded to rob Walker, which led to a fatal confrontation and the death of Walker as they were attempting to leave, along with two other non-fatal injuries from gunshot.
McIntyre was placed under house arrest until certification hearings were held. A few days before certification hearings were held, McIntyre and another suspect cut off their ankle monitors and fled to San Antonio, Texas. Just before cutting his ankle monitor off and going on the run, McIntyre wrote on Twitter "fuck dis house arrest shit fuck 12 they gn hav 2 catch me on hood". The suspect that McIntyre fled with was captured in May 2017. McIntyre made his way to Elizabeth, New Jersey where he recorded the song "The Race", which described his run from the police and his legal troubles. The song opens with "Fuck a beat, I was tryna beat a case/but I ain't beat that case, bitch I did the race" and repeats it numerous times. On June 30, 2017, McIntyre was captured by the U.S Marshal Service in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
While on the run, McIntyre allegedly attacked 65-year-old Skip Pepe in Cravens Park, Arlington on May 25, 2017. McIntyre allegedly held a gun to Pepe's head before knocking him unconscious in the park, where Pepe was later found by a jogger. Pepe later identified McIntyre during a photo lineup.
McIntyre was transferred to an adult jail on July 21, 2017. A preliminary certification hearing to decide upon Tay-K's status as a juvenile was held on August 30, 2017. Trent Loftin, a lawyer for McIntyre, said to the New York Times that McIntyre was optimistic and that they were confident he would be exonerated of his charges. It was decided that McIntyre would be tried as an adult in the case. The trial was eventually pushed back due to lack of evidence.
On September 20, 2017, additional capital murder charges were added to McIntyre's case involving a murder in San Antonio. The incident, which occurred outside of a Chick-fil-A, happened on April 23, 2017, while McIntyre was on the run from authorities. The victim, 23-year-old Mark Anthony Saldivar, was allegedly in a black SUV with McIntyre and several other passengers, when he exited the SUV and started to shout for help, which led to the SUV accelerating in an attempt to hit him. Saldivar allegedly jumped onto the hood of the SUV, kicking the windscreen until the front passenger left the car and shot him once before driving away. Police claim that McIntyre was in the vehicle during the shooting and that there is surveillance footage of the incident. McIntyre was being held on $500,000 bail though in February 2018, the bail was set to $0.
On February 28, 2018, McIntyre's accomplice, known as a "petite, pretty blonde" was sentenced to twenty years in prison after being found guilty on capital murder and aggravated robbery charges. Four of McIntyre's accomplices, Megan Holt, Ariana Bharrat, Latharian Merritt and Sean Robinson remain in a Tarrant County Jail awaiting their own trials though court documents show that Holt had reached an agreement to testify truthfully against her co-defendants to waiver the capital murder charge against her.
McIntyre's defense attorneys argued that because McIntyre’s case had started in the juvenile system — which does not have a bail or bond system in place — he is entitled to one now under Texas law in March 2018. State District Judge Wayne Salvant denied McIntyre's request for bond, expressing concerns McIntyre's alleged crimes had been "glorified" and that he was a "high, violent assessment."Discography Mixtapes Title Album details Peak chart positions US
