Tay-K Responds To His Music Being Pulled Off Spotify

By Daryl Nelson

Spotify's decision to remove R. Kelly and XXXTentacion's music from their playlists has shaken up the music industry. The company did so under its new Hate Content & Hateful Conduct policy. Now we've learned they've also removed Tay-K's music.

Tay — who scored a hit last year with "The Race" — is currently locked up and facing two murder charges. One for a home invasion that took place two years ago in Texas and another one for a killing that happened after a 2015 Daytona Boyz concert.

On Thursday, the 17-year-old responded to Spotify's decision and wondered why his music was removed since he's yet to be convicted of anything.

My songs have been removed from playlists on spotify because I’m being accused of something that I have not been convicted of. I don’t make hate music I rap about what goes on in every hood in America. I will never let a situation hold me back from what I believe in. So I’m making my own playlist for my music and the music I rock with. Death b4 Dishonor. Rugrat Music playlist now available on spotify. The playlist will be updated weekly with some of our favorite new artists. Link in bio. #FREETAYK

What do you think about Kelly's, XXX's and Tay's songs being banned? Are they getting a raw deal or is the decision fair?
