Tay-K - Pleading Guilty to Armed Robbery

Image result for tay k

Tay-K of "The Race" fame is officially on trial. Tay-K has pleaded not guilty to an additional count of aggravated robbery, as well as one charge of capital murder. He has, however, pleaded guilty to two charges of armed robbery, with his defense attorney Jeff Kearney claiming that Tay-K indeed "agreed to participate in a robbery," though he did not possess awareness that a murder was to be committed. Unfortunately, the robbery ultimately went sour when Tay's associate Latharian Merritt claimed the life of Ethan Walker, a 21-year-old father who died from a gunshot wound to the stomach.
According to Kearney, the guilty plea is a sign that Tay "accepts responsibility" for committing the robbery. Still, he maintains that Tay-K had no inclination that Merrit “was going to go in and intentionally kill for no reason, intentionally kill Ethan Walker.” Moreover, he maintains that no amount of evidence could suggest otherwise. 
Opposition counter by suggesting Tay K was eager to involve himself in the robbery, claiming that he expressed willingness to "take care of" the situation upon learning there might be a gun in the place. He also claims that Tay-K and his associates entered the house with a pair of guns and brass knuckles, with the logic therefore being, "what else might he have expected." 
If Tay-K is indeed charged with capital murder, the punishment is life with the possibility of parole. Seeing as he has pleaded guilty to a pair of aggravated robbery charges, he's requesting probation. Unfortunately for Tay-K, he's also facing a second capital murder charge, which occurred during his "Race" when he allegedly shot and killed 23-year-old Mark Saldivar. Not only that, but he rounded things out with a reported assault on a 65-year old man named Skip Pepe.

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
