The jury began to deliberate on the rapper’s sentencing around 10 a.m. this morning for roughly three hours. Along with the 55-year sentence, he also has to pay a $10K fine.

We reported earlier that Tay-K’s hit song ‘The Race’ was used as evidence against him in court. An IT employee at the state’s attorney’s office presented a disk of the video and print-outs of the lyrics to show the jury, pointing out that Tay-K released the video while he was evading the police while on house arrest.

His sentencing was also based on his behavior while he was locked up awaiting trial. The prosecutors brought up the fact that Tay-K’s fled the authorities in the past but he also noted that the rapper was charged with a felony for possessing a cell phone inside of prison.
