Being Black In Germany
A 17-year-old fugitive rapper wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service on a capital murder charge in Texas was staying with a friend in New Jersey when he was captured last week, authorities said Thursday. Taymor Travon McIntyre, who U.S. Marshals have described as a "violent fugitive," was arrested without incident at about 2 p.m. Friday near Newark Avenue in Elizabeth, authorities said. McIntyre, a Texas rapper who goes by "Tay-K 47," is a suspect in a separate murder case, according to reporting in the Star-Telegram, a newspaper in Fort Worth, Texas. In March, McIntyre cut off his ankle monitor while on house arrest in connection with the murder and a robbery, the newspaper reported. The rapper on March 27 tweeted, "they gn hav 2 catch me on hood." On the day of his arrest, the rapper's account tweeted, "FEDS CANT HOLD ME BACK HERE IT GO." The tweet included a link to a music video published the same day. The friend he was visiting in New Jersey had made music with the rapper in the past, authorities said.
